It's the little things, say Robert and Charlene Spierer, that hurt the most.
For Robert it's the flash of a blonde ponytail on a city street that leaves him aching; for Charlene it's the arrival of the cell-phone bill that still bears her daughter's name.
Nineteen months after Lauren disappeared, her boxes from college remain stacked against her parents' den wall. Long ago they gave up hope that Lauren might unpack them herself.

A tooth from a skull found in an Indianapolis's White River is being tested for a match to missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer.
Authorities cautioned they have no information tying the remains to the 20-year-old sophomore, who vanished in June 2011 from Bloomington after a night out with friends, and that other bodies have been found in the region that were not hers.
