Watch Search for Ind. Student Reminiscent of 2000 Case News

Eleven years after an Indiana University student disappeared while on a bike ride, the scene in this college town is eerily similar, with parents and volunteers frantically searching for another missing woman with no sign of what happened to her.
Those searching for Spierer include Eric Behrman, whose daughter, Jill, was 19 when she disappeared in May 2000 while on a bike ride near Bloomington. Hunters found her skeletal remains three years later in a remote field about 15 miles from the city. John R. Myers II was charged later that year and is now serving a 65-year sentence in her death.
The search for a missing Indiana University student is evoking painful memories for many in the college town who joined in a similar search more than a decade ago.
Behrman's father, Eric, is among those searching for Spierer. The Greenburgh, N.Y., native disappeared early Friday after leaving a friend's apartment following an evening out at a sports bar.
Robert Spierer, meanwhile, begged for anyone with any information about his daughter's death to come forward.
