Police are reviewing video surveillance from the apartment of a missing Indiana University student.

Bloomington Police Lt. Bill Parker briefed the media on the search for 20-year-old Lauren Spierer Wednesday morning, but offered few new details on the case.

Parker says police are reviewing security video gathered from the IU junior's apartment building, which was retrieved Tuesday night when police broke into two rooms holding the videos.

Spierer's father, Robert, also spoke to the media for the second straight day, thanking those who have taken up the search for his daughter.

Hundreds of volunteers have joined the search for Spierer, including members of the university's ROTC program, who have searched wooded areas every day since the search began.

Tip lines have been set up through the Bloomington Police Department (812-339-4479) and through the television show America's Most Wanted (1-800-CRIME-TV).

Parker says the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is offering its resources -- even though Spierer is an adult -- to police who are searching for the missing student.

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has offered a $10,000 reward on his Twitter feed for "serious info" leading to a break in the case.
