Lauren Spierer Disappearance: DNA Collected From Several Men

Comstock/Thinkstock(BLOOMINGTON, Ind.) -- Investigators in the case of missing 20-year-old Indiana University student Lauren Spierer have collected DNA samples from several young men who were allegedly among the last to see the young woman.

Two of these men are Spierer's friends, Corey Rossman, the student she was with on June 3, the morning she disappeared from Bloomington, Ind., and Mike Beth, his roommate.

"I was not the last person with her," Rossman said. "This is all I can say, I'm sorry, but I just hope that they find her as soon as possible and I'm praying for her and her family."

After spending the evening with friends at Kilroy's Sports Bar, police say Spierer left at about 2:30 a.m. with Rossman to go back to her apartment complex. Footage from surveillance cameras show Spierer and Rossman arriving at the building where Rossman's attorney says he was punched in the face.

"We don't know who, why or what was said, but that punch caused him a temporary memory loss," said Carl Satzmann, Rossman's attorney.

Rossman says he does not remember Spierer walking him back to his apartment and leaving him with his roommate. His lawyer says the first thing he remembers from that night is waking up the next day.

After leaving Rossman, Spierer went to another friend's apartment and that friend last saw Spierer walking towards her own apartment around 4:30 a.m. Surveillance video shows her walking with an acquaintance in an alley where her keys and coin purse were found by police.

Spierer's longtime boyfriend is also one of 10 persons of interest.

"We continue to speak with him. He's cooperative," Bloomington Police Lt. Bill Parker said at a press conference.

Spierer's boyfriend, also a student at Indiana University, was the first to express concern when she did not return his text messages.

Hundreds of searchers have been combing Bloomington and beyond every day since Spierer's disappearance. Police have received hundreds of leads but no arrests have been made.

The family of the missing student is offering a $100,000 reward for her safe return.
