WOODBURY - Indiana police say a decomposed body recovered yesterday from a creek near Indianapolis is not that of a missing New York woman.

Indiana University student Lauren Spierer vanished on June 3 after drinking with friends at a bar in Bloomington. Massive searches of the surrounding area yielded no trace of the Westchester County native.

The body found yesterday was discovered about 50 miles away from Spierer's school. Indiana officials say the corpse is that of a young black woman who had possibly been in the water for more than two weeks.

Authorities have said Spierer's boyfriend, Jesse Wolff, of Port Washington, is among several persons of interest in the case.Police: Body found 50 miles from Indiana Univ.
