On the two-month anniversary of Indiana University student Lauren Spierer's disappearance, people in Bloomington are less optimistic about a happy ending.

Listen:


Along bustling Kirkwood Avenue, IU students and local residents tell us they are losing hope that the 20-year-old will be found anytime soon.

"At this point, I'm really doubtful that there will be any more evidence that's going to turn up," said a university employee.

People are still talking about the case, including the latest development that the FBI is interested in performing a search for Lauren's body at a landfill in Vigo County.

Most residents we talked to say her disappearance has caused them to be more alert.

"You realize how comfortable people get in a town like this, and it's just kind of one of those things that you need to always be vigilant, even if you are in a situation where you feel like you may be safe."
