WCBS 880'S Catherine Cioffi reports: More Than A Month Since Lauren Spierer Went Missing


The reunion is called Laps For Lauren. On the family's website,, they write "We would love to see everyone who is helping us continue our efforts to find our dear sweet Lauren."

The reunion is to thank the thousands of searchers who have helped look for Spierer since she disappeared on June 3 and to keep up the effort to find the missing 20-year-old. 

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

Large scale public searches were called off last month, but police said they would continue to investigate.

A badly decomposed body that was found last week in Fall Creek, Indiana, about 50 miles away from Bloomington where Lauren goes to school, was determined not to be that of the missing 20-year-old.
