“Mr. Rosenbaum provided cooperation as soon as requested by the authorities and continues to do so,” a statement from the law firm Voyles, Zahn, Paul, Hogan and Merriman said.

Rosenbaum’s attorneys said that he has provided full statements to the police and has passed a polygraph test that was then given to the police.

“Mr. Rosenbaum hopes for nothing less than Lauren to be found and to be safe,” Rosenbaum’s laywers said in emailed statement.
