Hope these pics come out ok.

Moved forward approx. 1/2 block closer toward his apt. area.

Another 1/2 block (approx.)closer to his apt. area.
In the below pic, there is a photographer in the middle of the alley at the top of the hill near the boys apartment pointing his camera my way. I didn't want to go further.

Looking back at Smallwood.

There are very few street lights in this alley. The lights that are there are focused on apt. parking areas, not the alley.

Since I'm local, I went looking for the "Alley Cam" that shows Lauren at 3am. This is the last location that she can be proven to have been.

Actually there are several camera's. All of them are at 10th & the alley. 3 of them have tinted covers. You can't tell where they point, or if they are real. 3 of them are old school "box" camera's.

2 of the box cameras point directly at the alley. If you go up the alley there is no way to avoid them.

This is 1 block before they "got to the boys apt."


2 Box cams center, circled in red are unavoidable if your walking up the alley. I did not circle the box cam to the right, since it points toward College.
There is no way to tell where the tinted camera on the left is pointed.

Tinted cameras probably point at the fenced in pool, but there is no way to know if they are real, or where they point.

I'm back from looking around the area between Morton, 11th, & College. I was mainly looking for the handrail. Below are some pics. I'm not much of a photographer, so its not much, but its all I can do to help find Lauren at this point.

I've updated that area of my original "map" to help clarify some things.

Starting at 9th Street in front of Bubs (http://www.bubsburgersandicecream.com/), behind Smallwood, looking North on Morton toward 10th, & 11th St. You can follow along on Google Street View. There is nothing to see on the west side of the street, (farthest from Smallwood).

There is an empty lot at the corner of 9th & Morton, then the first building is an apartment complex named Morton Mansions at 10th and Morton St. with for lease signs, cameras pointing to the parking lot, which is toward Smallwood and College, One camera at the main entrance, and more in the distance on the next building.
http://i55.tinypic.com/24c8n60.jpg

At the corner of 10th & Morton, I looked East up 10th, toward College Ave. There are 6 Cameras. The far building on the left with cameras is 10 & College Apartments.
http://i52.tinypic.com/2cftthj.jpg


Continuing North on Morton, are 3 more cameras on 10th & College Village apartment building.
http://i55.tinypic.com/2v9rk02.jpg

Further North on Morton, another camera at the main entrance to 10th & College Village apartment building. As I took this picture, a friend pulled up to the curb. I leaned in his car as he asked what the heck I was doing. As a silly excuse came out of my mouth, 2 unmarked police cars pulled up just in front of him. 4 uniformed officers got out of each car, and fanned out thru the neighbor hood. You can see a few of them in a couple of these images IIRC. So, they are still out working the case. I worried a bit they might stop me and want to know why I was taking pics. :-)
As I was typing this, my wife said she saw on the news that a drone was flying over Bloomington to help with the search.
http://i52.tinypic.com/m8hau8.jpg

Just North of that, a glimpse inside 10th & College Village apartment building.
http://i56.tinypic.com/noyrl5.jpg

Still on Morton, a little farther North. Another Camera. North West corner of the 10th & College Village apartment building.

Looking East up the alley beside 10th & College Village apartment, eastward toward College Ave.
http://i54.tinypic.com/hrj695.jpg

Continuing East up the alley toward College Ave. The 2 guys in the alley were changing a light bulb on the 10 & College apartments building, at College Ave. I asked them about the bulb, and they said it didn't fix it, that it must be a bad fixture. The could not say if it was functioning when Lauren went missing.

In previous posts, I put pictures of the alley that runs from 9th St. to 11th Street, between Morton St., and College Ave.

I have a few more pictures now.

Moving back up North on Morton St. There are no security cameras on this block that I can see.
You are already aware of the pictures of gravel lot, the back of 5 North Apartments, and the side view of 5 North Apartments.

The next building on Morton is 5 North where the boys live. It faces 11th St.
Here is their dumpster. It says Sears & Son.

Looking right, (South), down the alley toward Smallwood.

Stil going East, the next building is another apartment building. Don't know its name, and although its small, there is nowhere to go to get it all in one image. The other side of the street is closed due to construction.

Between buildings, looking south.

I have a few more pictures now.

Starting to move South on the west side of College Ave. 11th St. is just behind me. So, the corner of 11th & College on the West side of the street.
The pics bounce back and forth between the East side of the street, student rental houses, and the West side of the street.

There is a blue house on the North West corner of 11th & College. Its a student rental apartment. Just next to it, (South), is another student rental house. After that is a Dr. Office.
http://img840.imageshack.us/img840/5723/img00187201106141729.jpg

Standing beside the blue house on the West side of College Ave. Looking directly South toward 10th & College from the corner of 11th & College Ave.
http://i55.tinypic.com/28lwf2p.jpg


I tried to get pics of both sides of College. The East side is mostly houses that students rent. No obvious video cameras.
East side of College, between 11th & 10th.

East side of College, further South between 11th & 10th.

Salzman's Law Office, East side of College. Corner of College & 10th. Across from 10th & College Apartments. His cameras point at his parking lot. I don't think they get the sidewalk or the road. Lawyers are careful like that.

OK, VeryVeritas talked me into messing around with "the map" a little more.
Its no work of art, and needs more work, but its a start.
Please feel free to make any corrections, additions, etc.

I'll try later to one up Bessie and see about connecting the pics to a map location, but time is my enemy.

I took this on Day 50. It's the door to the apartment next to JR's. Not sure if this is CR/MB unit. I was glad to see the sentiment and I hope it is for Lauren. I left the reflection of the construction in this photo because it symbolizes the danger behind her. And then there's the door. I hope a door opens for her soon. XO
