LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The mother of an Indiana University student who disappeared this past summer is responding to criticism that she is "littering" the town of Bloomington with posters of her daughter.
20-year-old Lauren Spierer was last seen June 3rd, walking back to her apartment after a night partying with friends. Police have not named any suspects, and have not given any new information.
On Thursday, Charlene Spierer released a letter in which she responds to an anonymous writer who asked her to stop posting fliers.

Charlene Spierer reacted to the anonymous note in this way:
