    Search scaled back; news conference held Friday
    The widespread search for missing Indiana University sophomore Lauren Spierer is coming to an end. Nearly four weeks after she went missing, police announced they will focus on specific searches as opposed to canvassing huge areas.
    One of the last organized groups of volunteers headed out Wednesday to search outlying areas of Monroe County. Nearly four weeks since she was last seen, they're looking for any sign of 20-year-old Lauren Spierer.
    "As far as I'm concerned it's not over until we find her," said Jeff Ritter, a Martinsville resident who participated in the search.

    The disappearance of an IU student earlier this month has similarities to a Tennessee case.
    Nursing student Holly Bobo disappeared in April, two months before 20-year-old Lauren Spierer went missing near the IU campus. Both students are the same age and have similar looks, which raises questions.
    "I can't even tell you what it's like to get that phone call that your daughter is missing," said Spierer's mother, Charlene.
    "I think of her. I love her," said Bobo's mother, Karen.
