FINALLY! Just as I stated in my previous post the MEDIA is catching up w/the facts, JVM just posted the CRIME STATS for Lafayette, they are extremely HIGH! They always have been, it's ridiculous that it has taken this long to get this information.

The reality is, due to the location, Mickey could be States away, I pray she is found but the location & time of abduction is ominous in her case.

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,

Thank you for posting the message I sent to you earlier. Lamar Advertising is an outstanding company in giving back to the community.

They have been very generous in donating billboards for some of the missing in TX.

I think it is awesome that they have donated 16 billboards for Mickey Shunick with more on the way!

Thank you Lamar Advertising! Your generosity is greatly appreciated!

Mickey Shunick Disappearance: Searchers Follow Bike Route Where Missing Student Was Last Seen

By YUNJI DE NEIS
ABC News - Good Morning America
May 24, 2012


Dozens of people gathered to ride the route presumably taken by missing Louisiana college student Michaela "Mickey" Shunick when she vanished on her bike last Saturday.

Friends and searchers took to the route at dusk Thursday, following the path on which Shunick set out in the early hours of Saturday morning. FBI, U.S. Marshals and local police are involved in the search that they are treating as a missing-person case, but have not ruled out foul play.

Shunick, 22, a senior anthropology major at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, left friend Brettly Wilson's house on her bike just before 2 a.m. Saturday after a night out, and hasn't been heard from since.

LAFAYETTE, LA (WAFB) -
Volunteers from across the nation have gathered at the new "Find Mickey Now" headquarters at Our Lady of Wisdom Catholic Church in Lafayette, La.

An estimated 70 law enforcement agencies from across the country have joined volunteer efforts in Lafayette to help find the UL Lafayette Anthropology student.

Mickey Shunick, 22, was last seen early Saturday morning riding a black and gold bike from a friend's home in the St. Streets area of Lafayette. Her fiends said she was headed to her home near Ambassador and Congress. But never made it home and has not been seen since.

"She rides her bike everywhere. She is so fast, strong, an excellent biker. She was training for Bike Across America next summer," Josh Coen said.

We connect with missing woman

11:00 PM, May. 24, 2012

The Daily Advertiser - Lafayette, LA

The disappearance Saturday of Michaela Shunick has touched our community in a way we have not experienced in recent memory.

The outpouring of concern can be seen all across Lafayette, from the scores of volunteer searchers to the hundreds of people who turned out for a Tuesday night vigil in Parc Sans Souci. This case has grabbed widespread attention, not for unusual circumstances but perhaps because so many of us can relate to the Acadiana girl next door.

Latest Update:
Police Pinpoint Mickey's Steps, Surveillance Video Provides Lead


05/25/2012 10:35 PM

by Maddie Garrett
KATC - Lafayette, LA

After almost a week of no leads in the case of Mickey Shunick, Lafayette Police said they finally got the break they were looking for with video surveillance of Mickey riding her bike on Versailles Boulevard and St. Landry Street.

In both videos, a white, four door pickup truck is captured on video after Mickey traveled those streets. The surveillance video comes from Lafayette Consolidated Government and is taken in front of the Circle K on St. Landry.

Police said it took a long time to go through all the surveillance video collected, and much of it had to be watched in real time. Police said they saw the footage Thursday and then had to get it enhanced in order to positively identify Mickey
.

Ann - Tx, the photo of the female is interesting, I have had the ominus feeling about how easily it would be to disable a young lady, throw her bike into the back of a truck, throw her into the cab. As a parent myself of young adult's, this is the thing my nightmares are made of. I feel terribly for her parent's, I can't imagine how they feel,I hope Tim Miller can bring them hope & a positive outcome.

The difficulty imo, of Lafayette is that it is easily accessible by several interstates. From Lafayette, you can be in Baton Rouge in 45 minutes, from Baton Rouge you could be in New Orleans in 60 minutes. The highways have a lot of swampy areas or areas in shallow water, Tim's search is going to be difficult/challenging. His horses & ATV's will be good for a lot of the searches. I know rivers, lakes, bayous, have to be searched in these cases, but it's terribly sad that the parent's realize that it is not for a live person they are searching in those areas.

In a case like this, does Tim take direction from LE as to where to start searching? It seems it would be difficult to know where to start except from the photo of her on her bike.

'Too early to quit'

12:52 AM, May. 27, 2012

Written by Amanda McElfresh
The Daily Advertiser - Lafayette, LA




Lafayette Police Chief Jim Craft walks past a banner displaying
information about the disappearance of Mickey Shunick Thursday
in front of the Catholic Student Center on E. St. Mary Boulevard
in Lafayette. The Center is the current Shunick volunteer search
headquarters.
By Leslie Westbrook May 24, 2012


As the investigation into the disappearance of Michaela "Mickey" Shunick enters its second week, police and volunteers aren't giving up hope that the missing bicyclist — whose case has generated unprecedented community support — will be found safe.

"I think everybody — the investigative team and myself — feels that it is way too early to quit. Way too early," Lafayette Chief of Police Jim Craft said Friday. "I can tell you that the investigators are here every day for long hours. We've got to force them to go home. ... The longer this goes on, we're not going to be able to keep the same amount of resources we have dedicated to this case, but one week is not long enough for us to say we have to scale back."

Instead, investigators are handling a torrent of new tips and leads that began pouring in after surveillance videos released Friday showed a woman believed to be Shunick riding her bicycle along Versailles Boulevard and St. Landry Street around 1:47 a.m. May 19. A white, four-door pickup truck of unknown make and model is also seen in the video, traveling in the opposite direction, about one minute after Shunick passes.

The LATEST
DEVELOPMENTS


» A benefit concert featuring Vagabond Swing and Givers will take place at Parc International at 5 p.m. today. The suggested donation is $15.

» Police released a new picture of the truck seen in surveillance footage Friday evening. They also released pictures of two more vehicles of interest, one a Chevy Z-71 truck and another an older model sedan with body work on its rear quarter panel.

» On Saturday night the volunteer headquarters was moved from Our Lady of Wisdom on the UL campus to Blackham Coliseum to give people more space to work. There was an influx of volunteers after surveillance footage was released late Friday.

» Police continue to receive a large number of tips in relation to white pickup. Anyone with information is asked to call the tips line at 291-8633.

I am about to go to church, but just thought I'd weigh in for a moment here. I really want to have an opinion on this case, but I'm learning that I am usually more focused on controversial issues. My dad says I would argue with a brick wall that the sky wasn't blue, but that's neither here nor there.

From what I'm reading of this case, and the fact that it's very clear that she did leave her friend's home on her bike, is it apparent that we're looking at a stranger abduction at this juncture?

Mickey Shunick: Missing Student's Bike Found Under Bridge

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

By YUNJI DE NIES (@yunjid)

May 27, 2012

Two fishermen found the bicycle of missing Louisiana student Michaela "Mickey" Shunick today, more than a week after the 22-year-old woman went missing after leaving a friend's home on her bike.

Police found the bike early this morning under a bridge at Whiskey Bay on the Atchafalaya River, after being tipped off by the fishermen.

Shunick's family members were brought to the scene and confirmed that the bike is Shunick's black and gold Schwinn. Police are not releasing details on the bike's condition.

Police are planning to perform a grid search of the area where the bike was found on ATVs. Officers are searching the Atchafalaya River by boat, but the river's current was too strong to allow for divers this afternoon, police said.

Alessandra, thank you for that above Link!

Wow! What a big break in the case!

Hopefully, a grid search will lead to more recovery of Mickey's personal belongings.

I fear that Mickey has met with foul play.

Oh my GOD.. so someone abducted her. Then at some point ditched her bike. I am wondering if the IS is at all close to where she rode on her way home.

Have any maps been issued in the case?

Lafayette concert hopes to send positive energy for continued search for Mickey Shunick

POSTED: Sunday, May 27, 2012 - 5:32pm

UPDATED: Sunday, May 27, 2012 - 6:01pm



The gates just opened for a benefit concert happening in downtown Lafayette at Parc Internationale to raise funds for the continued search of missing ULL student Mickey Shunick. The latest breakthrough in the case came this morning and has all involved emotionally conflicted, but remaining positive.

“The news is unsettling, but it’s another step forward and I’m thankful, but it is bitter sweet,” Kelsye Sruge, one of the organizers of the benefit concert, explained. “The bands have changed their set list to include songs that they feel are appropriate given the latest news.”

POLICE CONFIRM MICKEY'S BIKE FOUND

2:27 PM, May. 27, 2012

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




Law enforcement officials from several agencies converged on the
Whiskey Bay bridge on Interstate 10 Sunday when fishermen reported
finding a bicycle which police now confirm belongs to Michaela
"Mickey" Shunick.
/ Leslie Westbrook, The Advertiser


The investigation into Michaela “Mickey” Shunick’s disappearance reached out from the streets of Lafayette to grip the swamps of the Atchafalaya Basin Sunday after the University of Louisiana student’s bicycle was found under the Whiskey Bay bridge on Interstate 10.

The new development gives investigators their first solid piece of evidence in a week-old case that has captured the national spotlight and ignited a groundswell of community support and outreach.


Cpl. Paul Mouton, spokesman for the Lafayette Police Department, said family members had confirmed that the bicycle is Shunick’s. Fishermen found the bike early Sunday morning and called the special tips line that police have dedicated to the Shunick case.

“We do have possession of the bicycle,” Mouton said. “It’s a big break for us.”


The bicycle was the first item belonging to Shunick that has been found since she disappeared around 2 a.m. May 19, after riding the bike away from a friend’s home at 100 Ryan St. in Lafayette.

KATC - Lafayette, LA

A big development in the Mickey Shunick case with Lafayette Police confirming to KATC Sunday that they found Mickey's bicycle.

It was found 30 miles away from where Mickey was last seen, beneath the Whiskey Bay I-10 bridge, at exit 127 in Iberville Parish. Investigators spent much of the day there looking for more clues, but still no sign of Mickey.

By air, on the water and in the woods, several law enforcement agencies ramped up search efforts after two fishermen found Mickey's bike under the Atchafalaya Basin Bridge.

Hope the processing of the bike will produce finger prints that will identify the person who placed the bike under the bridge.

Mickey Shunick Disappearance: Police Seek Driver Looking to Pick Up Women

Images of missing Louisiana student Mickey Shunick caught on surveillance tape the night of her disappearance have prompted police to wonder whether three vehicles seen in the tape might be involved.
One of the vehicles, a white pickup truck, was immediately recognized by Tasha Patterson, a Lafayette woman who said she was approached two months ago by the vehicle while riding her bike and the driver, a middle-aged white man, offered her a ride and then asked her to have sex with him for money.

“He says he rides around town all the time trying to pick up pretty girls,” Patterson told ABC News affiliate KATC, although it’s unclear whether she accepted the ride.

Police are looking for the white, newer-model pickup truck with tinted windows, in addition to a four-door sedan and a second four-door white Chevy truck seen on the surveillance video.
