Charlene Spierer, the mother of missing 20-year-old Indiana University student Lauren Spierer, says she found an unsigned letter when checking the Bloomington post office box set up to receive tips about what happened to 20-year-old. She says she was hurt by the letter, which complained about Bloomington being littered with search posters.
According to Spierer, the anonymous note addressed to her read, “We are sorry about your missing daughter, but don’t you think it’s time to do the right thing by Bloomington and stop littering our town with your posters?”
Spierer responded on Thursday with a message on the website dedicated to the search:
“I wish we had never had to hang one single poster for our missing child. . .I apologize for our intrusion. I hope you never have to hang a poster for your missing child.”
Spierer also expressed her gratitude for the community’s support during the search. The young woman (from Greenburgh, N.Y) disappeared on June 3 after a night out with friends in downtown Bloomington, Indiana.
