Waiting for Mickey

3:13 AM, May. 28, 2012

Written by:
Amanda McElfresh and
Megan Wyatt, Staff Writers

The Daily Advertiser - Lafayette, LA



Area law enforcement agencies search the area below the Whiskey
Bay overpass on Sunday at mile marker 127 on Interstate 10 after
fishermen found a bicycle belonging to Mickey Shunick, a 22-year-old
college student who disappeared May 19 while cycling home from a
friend’s house. A MIckey Shunick “Missing” sign is seen attached to
a stop sign near the search area.



The mother of Michaela "Mickey" Shunick said she believes her missing daughter is the victim of an accident after police on Sunday found the 22-year-old college student's bicycle under the Whiskey Bay bridge on Interstate 10.

Police say Shunick's bicycle was found about 30 miles east of Lafayette near the swamps of the Atchafalaya Basin, and that Shunick's family confirmed it was her black-and-gold Schwinn.



Snipped:

Mouton said Sunday afternoon police were not ready to reveal the exact condition of the bicycle or where exactly it was found, except to say that it was under the I-10 Atchafalaya Basin bridge.

Joining in the search Sunday were authorities from the Lafayette Police Department, Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office, St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office, Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office, Louisiana State Police and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, along with other assisting agencies.

The area where the bike was found is just off of Exit 127 of I-10 in Iberville Parish, about midway between Lafayette and Baton Rouge. The road leading from the exit is rural and in a general swampy area, with tall grass and patches of thick woods.

Shunick bicycle found

by Robert Stewart
Advocate staff writer
The Advocate - Baton Rouge, LA

May 28, 2012

The bicycle belonging to missing college student Michaela “Mickey” Shunick was found Sunday by a fisherman near Whiskey Bay, police spokesman Cpl. Paul Mouton said.

The fisherman found the black Schwinn bike beneath Interstate 10 at Whiskey Bay exit No. 127 and called the Lafayette Police tip line sometime Sunday morning, Mouton said.


Snipped:

On Friday, police said a bicyclist seen in a video surveillance tape was believed to be Shunick. She was seen on the tape riding on Versailles Boulevard toward St. John Street, Mouton has said.

The bicyclist pedaled onto St. John Street, crossed over University Avenue and continued west on St. Landry Street where she was recorded by the surveillance camera around 1:48 a.m., Mouton said.

Some one knows what happened to Mickey Shunick.

Maybe that some one told a friend or whatever.

I think every effort should be made to increase the Reward.

Some people may not be willing to talk for $25,000 but might sing like a bird if the reward was $50,000 or $100,000.

I hope there was enough money made from the Benefit Concert where money could be put towards the Reward.

In a Texas case, the Reward started at $5,000; then $10,000; then $20,000, etc. It seems as the Reward was raised, it generated more leads for LE.

Without a doubt, the people and businesses of Lafayette and the surrounding areas have been very generous in donating billboard signs (not one but at least 16), water, snacks, food, supplies, etc. in regard to the search for Mickey Shunick. It is remarkable!

If I were involved in this search effort, I'd do all I could to get the reward increased.

In a case I'm referencing, the Reward money is in a separate bank account and will require two signatures to do the pay out, hopefully one day!

Surely they can get a make, model, and year for this truck?
Can't the computers then generate all the licensed vehicles registered in the area ?

I find it odd the man running across the gas station apron.

Calypso, yes she had a cell phone. A friend phoned her after 1:30 am (I think it was around that time). It is the last known communication on the phone. It has been verified by LPD.

Her sister, Charlie, Mom, friends, etc. have called Mickey's number numerous times before calling 911 to no avail.

She also had a brown leather backpack and a can of mace when she left B. Wilson's home.

Police discuss bike's condition

11:00 PM, May 29, 2012

Written by: Amanda McElfresh
The Daily Advertiser - Lafayette, LA


Experts at the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab are examining Michaela "Mickey" Shunick's bicycle, found in the waters of the Atchafalaya Basin, for more clues into the college student's May 19 disappearance.

Meanwhile, as the volunteer search was halted Tuesday, Lafayette police are searching for the drivers of three vehicles that were in the same area as Shunick around the time she vanished.

Shunick's bicycle was almost completely submerged in the swamp waters near Whiskey Bay when two fishermen found it Sunday morning, Cpl. Paul Mouton of the Lafayette Police Department said at a Tuesday press conference. Only a small piece of the bicycle was visible, but it was enough to prompt the fishermen to call the Shunick tips line.

Mouton said the bike's rear tire was damaged.

The statements made about the damage say "damage to the rear tire", and the wheel was bent. Has there been indications of the damage to the tire? Was it blown out or cut, or what?

Pretty hard to damage the rear wheel of a bike while riding it. A front wheel I can see being damaged by the rider hitting something. Sure would seem the rear of the bike had been struck by a vehicle. If that is the case then it would seem impact would cause the bike to go out of control and wreck causing some sort of damage (scratches/scrapes) to some other part of the bike. I suppose if the bike was dropped from the bridge it could have sustained damage to the rear wheel in the fall/drop from the bridge. I hope prints can be recovered from the bike frame.

Marica, Cpl. Mouton with Lafayett Police Dept. said, during the Presser today, that they do not believe the bike was dropped from the bridge.

He did not answer all questions about the bike. He declined to answer the specific damage to the bike tire.

I, like you, hope that prints or DNA can be obtained from the bike. That would be a huge break in the case!

Thanks, Ann. And special thanks to Calypso. Those additional pictures help to explain what was being discussed. Wow. So close.

I am still bothered by the figure running. It appears to be of urgency by looking at his legs and r/arm. Hope the store has video.

Can the plates on the Chevy Z-71 be identified? I live in TN and one identical to the one in the videos/pics is owned by a guy a couple of streets over from me. He has TN tags on his, I checked this morning.

I'm sure there are thousands of vehicles that match the description, but it has been bugging me.
