    I was just on the FB page and apparently they can't get camera footage due to privacy laws. This is something I didn't know about. How frustrating! Can anyone so kindly explain to me how this works?

    The home and business owners are not required by law to hand over surveillance video, but some will do so voluntarily. If not, LE can ask a judge to issue a search warrant to obtain the video.

    Track Phone?

    Is it possible to track her phone if she has an iphone/android?

    Any person or business that doesn't turn over video surveillance footage to LE for a missing person is on my BIG TIME CARP LIST. That's momma talk for, "You're in trouble from here on out!"

    When was Mickey noticed missing? For example did her mom wake up in the morning and find her gone or was there some one who was waiting up for her?

    I'm gathering all this from the Missing FB page....
    Hmm. Did anyone apart from this guy see her leave? If not then my hinky meter is twitching a little.

    Well, one of the FB pages that friends have set up for Mickey had comments from the male friend who last saw her. Some of the comments there on FB mentioned that she and some friends (apparently including the male friend) had met up at a local bar/restaurant for "the show." After "the show," around "1-ish," Mickey left and went to the male friend's home where they had something to eat. I immediately thought that was odd. They were just at a restaurant, so why would they need something to eat? But...perhaps, if they were students, they didn't have lots of cash and wanted to save money by eating something they already had at the friend's home. I'm not sure about that...still feels weird to me. But after having a bite, Mickey left alone on her bike for about a 30-40 minute ride to her home. That's a long ride for 2am. At least it seems like it to me. But Mickey loved to cycle and was apparently part of the Lafayette Cycling Community. Unfortunately, she never made it. Not sure who reported her missing.

    It doesn't surprise me that they wouldn't want to eat at the place where they went out at, it's definitely more of a bar than a restaurant, and being young kids, they'd want to save money or get something cheaper. The person who last saw her, everyone has been gathering at his place to start searches and he's been super involved. He's a close friend as well, so I don't think any suspicious is going on there.

    From what I assume her mom is the first one to notice her missing (remember, she was supposed to go to her brother's graduation with her family Saturday). This ride from the area where her friend lived back to her house was a ride she did very, very, very often, as far as what I've been told. The cops have started taking statements from those who saw her Friday night, so they've started an investigation, which is good.

    Mickey would have ridden right by the CajunDome, a large domed venue where they often have sporting events, concerts, etc. It just dawned on me that the Cajun Heartland State Fair is coming up soon, and the carnival people are in town, right there setting up for the fair. I hope the police are talking to them to see if they saw anything suspicious.

    I looked up the location where the friends went on Friday night....it mentioned that it was a popular pizza place. But it also was classified as a "bar." I've never been to the spot myself and was just going on what I read online.

    Wow! Attractive, petite gal riding a bike alone at 2am what could go wrong there!

    Lots of good questions already raised! Would have to scour the route she took to look for anything from the bicycle or from her.... she sadly seems like an easy target for someone to have struck her bicycle and taken her and her cycle...
    Wonder if she had done this kind of trip from BF late at night before... wonder if he had offered to follow her (does he have a car)... wonder if he calls after giving her time to get home to check if she made it okay...

    I see mention of friends searching, but don't see mention of a lead detective or sheriff working this case...

    Yeah, I don't think it's a pizza place unless something has changed recently. It's just bar food from what I understand. The person to last see her is NOT her boyfriend, just a close friend. They are a very tight knit group of friends. Yes, she's done this ride often, as most of the college crowd live in the Saint Streets area of Lafayette. I'm sure most of her friends live around there. Congress is a busy street, which is where most of her ride would have taken her. There are several fast food restaurants that are open well past 2am on Congress street to cater to the "after the bar" crowd, as well as a couple of sports bars popular with young people, so the street is quite busy and if something happened, I have to believe someone would have seen something.

    “We all know it’s dangerous to ride at night, but it was something she loved,” Says explained. “She’s not a rebel. She always has a can of mace in her front pocket, she obeys all traffic laws. She loved to have fun, but she’s really responsible.”

    When Shunick’s family had not heard from her all day on Saturday, they began to worry. They started off by calling around to hospitals. When that failed to provide results, they went to the police.

    “We went to the police department to file a report,” Says recalled. “At first we were told that there was nothing we could do until Monday. My friends and I said that this isn’t something that can wait until Monday, so we started sharing pictures of her on Facebook. We had friends make flyers and it’s been blowing up on Facebook.”

    Its hard for me to imagine LE telling a family to wait days to report a loved one missing. Thank heavens our police department responded quickly when our son went missing.

    I thought all LE pretty much had abandoned that 48-hr hour waiting period by now?
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Local here. I was really dreading the day this would hit so close to home. Saw the flyers up at Walmart today and that's how I first heard this.

    I'm bewildered. Ambassador & Congress are hardly ever quiet at 2 AM on a Saturday night. It's one of those collections of roads that takes everyone in all directions, whether you're going to someplace local or hitting the interstate.

    As a matter of fact, this intersection is part of the direct route to the interstate.

    Just doesn't seem likely she AND her bike were taken along her bike path. Just way too much activity, cameras, and witnesses. And Lafayette's not the kind of place where no one takes notice of what's going on around them in town.

    Definitely get the feeling she never got on her bike to head home.

    Lafayette, let's find Mickey!!

    Here is a flyer that is being handed out.

    https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net...63414811_n.jpg

    From one of my FB friends, "If you want to help out there will be a search party meeting up tomorrow morning at 100 Ryan Street around 1030 am again. You can come by and pick up flyers to distribute if you only have limited time, you can donate food and supplies to the people who are going to be out walking in the sun all day, or you can commit to helping us out throughout the day. Any effort is appreciated. "

    This search is starting at the friend's house that she left from that evening. He and her whole group of friends and family have been working extremely hard to find her. A private donor has offered a $10,000 reward and is also hiring a private detective. Here is a link with a video from KATC.

    I hope they bring dogs out tomorrow to try and pick up her scent.
