Bloomington, Ind. police see similarities between the missing person cases of two college students.

Indiana University student Lauren Spierer was last seen around 4:30 a.m. on June 3, 2011, according to the Herald Times. Bloomington police said there might be a connection between Spierer's disappearance and the missing person case of Mickey Shunick, who was last seen at around 2 a.m. on May 19.

Fox News noted that the two women are both petite blonde women who disappeared after nights out with friends. Both cases also involved a white truck, though, in Spierer's case, investigators eventually determined the truck had nothing to do with the woman's disappearance.

In the Shunick case, the 4-door Chevrolet is still being sought because surveillance video shows it drove in the same direction as Shunick on the night of her disappearance, according to a Lafayette Police press release sent to The Huffington Post.

Cpl. Paul Mouton of the Lafayette Police Department told Fox 44 that he doesn't think there's a connection between the two cases.

"They contacted us and we did share information pertaining to the two cases," Mouton said. "We currently do not think the two are related, but we are looking at the information they provided us to see if there are any similarities."

The police press release said Shunick's bike was discovered beneath a bridge on May 27. Police scoured the area where the bike was found but, after finding no additional evidence, called off the search the next day.
