(CBS/WCBS/AP) BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The parents of missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer held a 'searchers' reunion Saturday to thank the volunteers who have been looking for the 20-year-old since her June 3 disappearance.

At the reunion, called "Laps for Lauren", family and volunteers gathered on the IU campus to run laps around the Woodlawn track, where Lauren came as a student to relax and exercise.

Robert and Charlene Spierer then led the crowd around the track on a warm afternoon.

Large scale searches for the missing student were called off last month although police are continuing the investigation, reports CBS station WCBS.

Police say they've received nearly 2,000 tips since she went missing, reports WCBS.

A decomposed body that was found last week about 50 miles away from where Spierer was last seen was determined not to be that of the missing student.
