A month after their daughter disappeared, the parents of IU sophomore Lauren Spierer, 20, say they will stay in Bloomington and help police with the ongoing investigation.
 
Listen:
 
Robbie and Charlene Spierer held a news conference Friday to thank search volunteers and the overall Bloomington community for their help.
 
"We are just so greatful to all of the organizations and the thousands of people that lent their support in the effort to find Lauren, and we still continue with that search as you well know," Lauren's father said.
 
Robbie also called on the parents of Lauren's friends and acquaintances to use the holiday weekend to encourage their kids to step up with any information about her disappearance.
 
"Help your children to find the courage to come forward. Help them find their moral compass. They need your guidance and your strength to do the right thing."
 
Charlene expressed confidence in Bloomington Police and reemphasized that she and her husband are as committed to finding their young daughter as they were on the first day of the investigation.
 
"If you think that our determination is any less, it's not," she said. "We're just as determined today as we were day one."
