"America's Most Wanted" Covering Spierer Case

Detectives on Hand to Field Tips from Show

6/11/2011

Bloomington Police expect Saturday night's airing of an "America’s Most Wanted" episode to provide several new tips they hope will lead them to missing Indiana University Lauren Spierer.

Cpt. Joe Qualters told reporters Saturday a detective with the department traveled to Washington D.C. to share as much information about the case as possible.

"We will have two primary investigators that will be here to monitor those tips...the validity and the quality of those tips...in an effort to see whether or not they are going to require any immediate attention," Qualters said.

The FBI is now also assisting with a tip management system that will allow Bloomington Police to monitor the leads generated by the show.

Lauren’s parents, Robert and Charlene, also spoke Saturday, thanking volunteers for their ongoing help in the Bloomington area.

"Lauren is the light of our life, and our hearts are breaking," Charlene Spierer said. "This is just a continuous nightmare."
