The large-scale volunteer search effort for a missing college student from Westchester County may come to an end Wednesday.

Lauren Spierer, a 20-year-old student at Indiana University who is from Greenburgh, vanished earlier this month after partying with friends.

Police say the search headquarters will close as police shift their investigation.

Authorities have thanked the thousands of volunteers who took part in the searches.
