Robert Spierer is speaking on the day before the six month anniversary of the disappearance of his daughter Lauren.

Spierer says six months after Lauren disappeared, he and his wife are still working hard to find their daughter. He says searches are still being conducted, although they're on smaller scale than the searches in June and July.

Spierer says he and his family are overwhelmed by all the support they've received.

"Probably more important is the emotional support that we've gotten from friends, family, from this community here, both the city of Bloomington and people at Indiana University. There has just been an incredible outpouring of emotional support," Spierer says.

Spierer made another plea to those responsible for Lauren's disappearance. He says the emotional torture that his family is going through needs to stop.

Lauren Spierer disappeared June 3 after a night of partying with friends. She was last seen near 11th Street and College Avenue walking from a friend's apartment to her apartment complex. Bloomington Police said Thursday the case is still an active investigation and they have a team assigned to the case.
