BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Investigators are looking into dozens of leads about a pickup truck that was spotted near where a missing Indiana University student, Lauren Spierer, was last seen.

Bloomington police Capt. Joe Qualters said Thursday that the department has received nearly 300 tips in the day since the release of security camera images of the truck, with the vast majority of them regarding the vehicle.

Capt. Joe Qualters of the Bloomington Police Dept. said Thursday, "Certainly we know that it's a hot topic on blogs, and tips that have come in. At this point I wish we could tell you what was in that truck. There was some indication it might be equipment.  We don't know."

Police say that truck drove around a city block in the area and about the time Spierer, of Greenburgh, N.Y., was walking toward her apartment about 4:30 a.m. June 3 after a night of partying with friends.

Qualters says investigators are hopeful that information from the tips will help find the truck and determine whether it was involved in Spierer's disappearance.
