My heart is sick. Another beautiful young woman missing. This happens far too often.

Our young women need to be educated on safety precautions/practices. Too many young women turn up missing after leaving bars alone, or with someone they just met, or walking/jogging/hiking or shopping alone, or out alone late at night/early morning hours. Unfortunately, we no longer live in a society where it is safe to do things alone. There is much more safety in numbers. Women need to learn how not to set themselves up as victims. I hope she is found safe, but fear that will not be the outcome. She is a beautiful girl and wouldn't have gone unnoticed by a person(s) with bad intentions.

I continually tell my teenage granddaughters and their friends to have fun, but to always remember there are evil people in the world looking for opportunities to inflict their evil deeds upon unsuspecting victims. Don't put yourself in the situation that provides them the opportunity.

My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends.

FBI, national media involved in Shunick case
'Someone somewhere knows something'

Today should have been a day of celebration. It is the day of Michaela “Mickey” Shunick’s 22nd birthday, after all.

Instead, the day has been filled with tears and hugs, expressions of frustration and hope. Hundreds of people arrived by car, bike and foot to 100 Ryan St. in an effort to spread the word about Shunick’s disappearance in the wee hours of Saturday morning, when she left a close friend’s house on her bicycle to return to her own home.


"We couldn't feel more terrible. It's her birthday," said Schunick's mother, Nancy Rowe, while dabbing her eyes with a tissue.

Volunteers keep coming

11:00 PM, May. 23, 2012


Written by Amanda McElfresh
The Daily Advertiser
Lafayette, LA




A windblown "Missing" flyer is caught on a coulee fence as Matthew
Murphy begins an exploration of several miles of coulees in Lafayette
on Wednesday morning in search of Mickey Shunick, a female college
student missing since Saturday morning.



LAFAYETTE — Slowly at first, then more steadily, they arrived to help. Volunteers from all walks of life gathered Wednesday in the front yard of 100 Ryan St. For the moment the structure is less a home and more a command post for anyone who wants to help find Michaela "Mickey" Shunick.

Many of them have never met Shunick, a University of Lafayette senior who was last seen about 2 a.m. Saturday as she rode her bike away from the Ryan Street house and was headed to her mother's west-side home. On the fifth day of her disappearance, police continued to expand their search beyond the four-mile route between the two destinations but have reported no clues of her whereabouts.

Shunick's disappearance has captured the attention of people both locally and nationally. On Saturday, she missed her brother's high school graduation, an event that family members say she wouldn't miss. On Monday she turned 22.

Most of the volunteers have no connection to her family. But still they come, some with the hope that the community would respond the same way if they or one of their loved ones went missing.

Texas firm now involved in Shunick search

2:45 PM, May. 23, 2012 |



A well-known Texas organization that specializes in missing persons cases has now taken an interest in the Mickey Shunick case.

Tim Miller, director of the nonprofit Texas Equusearch, is heading to Lafayette from Houston this afternoon to meet with law enforcement officials and members of Shunick’s family.

“We’re going to see what resources we have that may be an asset to the search effort and what members we may need to bring there,” Miller said.

Community describes missing woman's neighborhood as friendly, safe

Written by Megan Wyatt
The Daily Advertiser - Layayette, LA

11:00 PM, May. 23, 2012



The electronic sign at Walgreens on the corner of Johnston and South
College Streets is programmed Wednesday to provide information about
Mickey Shunick
.


LAFAYETTE — Five days after a local college student disappeared, residents in the area where Michaela "Mickey" Shunick was last seen are cautious but not fearful about the safety of their neighborhood.

Sandwiched between the Saints Streets and downtown portions of Lafayette, the neighborhood is a mix of established residential homes and apartment complexes. Shunick, a 22-year-old anthropology major at the University of Louisiana, had been at a house in the area when she rode off on her bike at about 2 a.m. Saturday and has not been seen since.

Harris Flugence, who works for the United States Postal Service, delivers mail to residents in the neighborhood.

No leads in desperate search for missing college student, 22, after she disappeared cycling home

Michaela 'Mickey' Shunick last seen on Saturday at 2am
Friends and family held a candle-light vigil last night on her birthday
FBI joined search and $20,000 offered for information of her whereabouts

By Daily Mail Reporter

PUBLISHED: 12:26 EST, 23 May 2012 | UPDATED: 12:26 EST, 23 May 2012

There was still no sign of a college student who was last seen riding her bike home from a friend's house five days ago as the FBI stepped up the search and friends scoured the area.

Michaela 'Mickey' Shunick, who attends the University of Louisiana in Lafayette, disappeared on her way home at 2am on Saturday.
The FBI and Lousiana State Police intensified the search as friends and family held a candle-light vigil for the missing woman last night - her 22nd birthday.

A reward of $20,000 has been offered for information of her whereabouts while family and friends handed out hundreds of fliers and stapled posters to lampposts.

Dozens of volunteers have combed the four-mile route that Miss Shunick would have taken on Saturday night.

A larger search area was covered by police officers with dogs but has so far been fruitless

Miss Shunick's sister Charlene told ABC: 'I think she's OK, I think she's alive. I think she's out there.'

Her mother Nancy Rowe added: 'We want our daughter back - that will make everything better.'

Yes, it is really wonderful to see that kind of response. It is also very sad to know that she is missing and that they are collectively living this kind of nightmare. I hope she is found safe.

Thank you for the compliments. Very Happy

I lived in Baton Rouge for 16 yrs. & had family in Lafayette, a 45 minute drive from Baton Rouge.

imo, there is a misrepresentation in the news in this case probably because the reporter's interviewed on HLN aren't from the area. IT IS NEVER SAFE, NOT EVER to ride a freakin bike anywhere at night in Lafayette! NEVER!

Lafayette is not a small sleepy city nor a small town, although she may have ridden her bike at night many times before, she used poor judgement EVERYTIME she did it & anyone in Lafayette would say that who is NOT a college kid that is being interviewed. imo, it's not fair to claim woulda, coulda, shoulda, after the fact, but her friend should have taken her home after Taco Bell & she could have picked up her bike the next day, she was too tired to party anymore, it seems she too would be too tired to peddle home even if it was a shorter distance, I am saddened her friend didn't persuade her differently to let him take her home, he claimed he didn't have a bike rack! wtf? She could have gotten it later, her family was in town for a graduation.

Just spoke with Lamar Advertising in Lafayette and they have already so generously donated 16 digital billboard signs throughout Louisiana and Texas. Many are on I-10.

More billboards will be activated for Mickey Shunick today.

Thank you, Lamar, for your generosity!

FIND MICKEY SHUNICK NOW

39 minutes ago.

A message we received about Lamar signs:



I post under Ann Davids. I'm a Child's Advocate from TX.

I just spoke to Charlene Shunick not long ago. I asked if she and her family were interested in having a billboard sign for I-10 donated by Lamar Advertising. She said yes.

I called Lamar's corporate headquarters in Baton Rouge. They connected me to their Lafayette office. I spoke with Chris about donating a billboard (digital) sign(s) for Mickey Shunick. He said so far they have 16 digital signs for Mickey Shunick in LA and TX. They expect to activitate additional billboards today.

Please thank them on your Facebook page for their very generous donation.

For verification, you can contact Lamar Advertising in Lafayette at (337) 233-7220. Lane Parker is the General Manager. However, as stated, I spoke with Chris.

Thank you for your consideration in posting a thank you to Lamar Advertising for the billboards.

Digital billboards are very expensive and most families of the missing can not afford a digital billboard.

Lamar is always so generous in helping the families of the missing.

Special prayers and thoughts that Mickey will be found safe soon.

Best regards,

Ann Davids
