It’s been eight months since Indiana University student Lauren Spierer disappeared after a night out partying with friends and this weekend, the university removed a “Find Lauren” web banner from their homepage. I-U spokesman Mark Land says the university has been in contact with Spierer’s parents and says the web banner was removed on Saturday.
Lauren’s father, Robert Spierer released a statement on Facebook saying his family was disappointed by the university’s decision. Land says one of the biggest worries is that if people see the same information for an extended period of time, they’ll stop noticing it. The “Find Lauren” information will now be displayed the first week of every month on the homepage. It is also available at any time on the school’s Protect I-U website.
