(White Plains, N.Y.) – The family of a missing Indiana University student is waiting to hear if a human skull found in an Indianapolis river is that of their missing daughter.

 

The Journal News reports that about a week ago a fisherman discovered a skull in the White River, some 60 miles from where 20-year-old Lauren Spierer disappeared in the early morning hours of June 3, 2011 after a night out partying near her college campus in Bloomington. 

 

“In the days ahead, a family will have answers they have been desperately seeking,” Robert Spierer posted on a Facebook page devoted to his daughter’s disappearance.

 

It could take a forensic anthropologist weeks to assess the possible age, race and gender of the remains.
