Friends and family of Indiana University student Lauren Spierer are desperately looking for leads after the 20-year-old disappeared five days ago.

The college student was last seen at Kilroy’s Sports Bar on Friday morning at around 4:30 a.m. Cameras from her apartment building show that she never came back to her apartment. Her keys were found a block away from where she was last seen at the bar. There have been no other clues as to the whereabouts of Spierer.

Spierer, a merchandising major at Indiana University, just finished her sophomore year. She is just under five feet tall, less than a hundred pounds, and has long blonde hair. She was wearing long, black pants, a white shirt, and was barefoot on the night she disappeared.

Her mother said that she is in “complete shock” from her daughter’s disappearance. Her mother and father live in Edgemont, New York, and have arrived in Bloomington, Indiana to join the search for their daughter. Her sister and uncle have also arrived to Bloomington to help in the search.

Spierer suffers from a heart condition called Long QT Syndrome, which sometimes requires her to take medication. If she does not take this medication when she needs it, it can cause dangerous arrhythmias.

Friends of Lauren Spierer have made a Facebook page to help get the word out to find her. There are over 4,000 members of the group as of right now. Messages are posted saying “Keep the momentum going strong!” A Twitter page has also been created with over 2,000 followers, and is growing each day.

Her best friend, Becca Lefkowitz, told ABC News that “Lauren is an amazing person and friend. She’s artsy, fun, and different. I can’t imagine anyone doing any harm to her.”

“I just hope they find her. She’s my best friend and we just need to know that she’s okay. We’re hoping a miracle happens,” Blair Wallach, Spierer’s roommate at Indiana University, said.
