BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WDRB Fox 41) -- It was the biggest search yet, more than 500 volunteers covering ground in Bloomington and beyond. Celebrities are even helping find missing IU student Lauren Spierer. Saturday was dubbed "Find Lauren Day"and the search expanded into surrounding counties.
More than 500 volunteers came from all over to help find Lauren. The search has stayed alive through social media like Facebook and twitter. Celebrities like Nancy Grace get the word out to thousands of followers. Famous author, Nicholas Sparks gave away autographed books to followers who tweet about the search for Lauren.
Kenwyn and Kerry Koning's own daughter had classes with Lauren and came out to search. "It's heartbreaking, and it could have been our daughter," said Kenwyn Koning. "We just want people to come out and help."
The petite blonde was last seen June 3rd, walking home alone after a night out partying with friends.
You can tell by looking at Kerry's boots how strenuous the search is. "Sometimes you're walking up some steep hills and climbing over logs," he said.
The National Guard is covering some of the toughest terrain. Professional searchers have even come in. A pedometer shows that group covering 12,000 steps, which equates to about 6 miles.
Items were found, but so far, nothing helpful to the case. While it is disappointing to come up empty handed, the work was not done in vain.
"Well we didn't find anything but it's also kind of like a game of elimination," said Kerry Koning.
