According to Indiana's WABC News, the New York family is awaiting an identification on the remains, found about 60 miles away from the Bloomington spot where Lauren was last seen.
Since Lauren, a 20-year-old college student at Indiana University, disappeared on June 3, 2011, numerous tips have been investigated and leads followed in connection with the case.
In May, downplayed media reports of a connection between missing college student and Edgemont resident and that of another college student, Michaela Shunick, in Louisiana.
And in April, the Illinois coroner told a Bloomington newspaper that the remains found about 100 miles from where missing Indiana University student disappeared are not hers. They were that of a male.
