The attorney for a second acquaintance of a missing Indiana University says his client has provided a DNA sample and answered investigators' questions.

Bloomington attorney Ron Chapman said Saturday that he represents Mike Beth, a roommate of Corey Rossman, whom missing student Lauren Spierer of Greenburgh, N.Y., accompanied to his apartment after leaving a Bloomington bar on the night she disappeared.

Chapman says Beth was at home doing classwork when Spierer disappeared early June 3. He says Beth is cooperating "totally and completely'' with police and is under no criminal suspicion in the case.

Rossman's attorney says Rossman also has given police a DNA sample.

A message seeking comment was left with police. Authorities and volunteers continued searching for any clues to Spierer's whereabouts Saturday.
