    I got hit on my bike when I was living in new Orleans. The guy put me and my bike in his van and drove me home. Luckily. Very likely scenario that this happened and ended differently for her. We are so naive when we are young.

    My initial thought was a drunk driver. The best (for lack of a better word) place for this would have been on Souvenir Gate. My best friend just moved from the St. Street area, and I know leaving her house at night going down the dark and windy Souvenir Gate is scary in a car with my husband, much less alone on a bike. But since there has been no evidence of this (and I really believe there would be SOMETHING had this happened), my gut reaction is that someone very near lured her in and has her. I am familiar with the area as well and have known several people who lived there, though I have never lived in the area myself. to me, there is always an uneasy feeling. Old houses, overgrown yards. Kind of always get the feeling you are being watched. Just something in my gut tells me that neighbors should be checked out, especially since they said the neighbors called about a disturbance around the same time.

    I agree with your theory up to maybe # 8 or 9. We are friendly people here. She seems like a very friendly girl. I feel it was someone she may have passed before therefor felt comfortable stopping to say hello. It would have been much easier and quieter if he would have stopped her and then grabbed her in his own yard. He would be much more comfortable and efficient in his own territory. Wouldn't need a 2nd person.

That's why nothing has been found, he scooped everything up and put it in his vehicle.

    Like Morgan Harrington, where she was intoxicated and probably hitchhiking on a college campus when she had the extremely unfortunate luck to get in the car with a predator (who had attacked women in the past) and who was likely cruising the college area looking for vulnerable women to victimize.

    I am thinking of a case in Illinois of a husband and wife. Husband died at scene. She walked off into the snow and for a distance and died. It took them quite a while to find her and she was in a formal red gown.

    I suppose there might be an area where Mickey could have wrecked, left her bike and it was stolen or picked up her bike and walked off and is laying lost and injured.... Find Mickey

    2 cents
    Just wanted to throw my 2 cents in here,

    I do not suspect BW of this, just does not fit the profile in my opinion/gut feeling of someone capable of harming someone in this fashion.

    I first came to this websleuths site because of something close to my home in Indiana, the Lauren Spierer case.
    ==============================

    I clipped the above because the post was quite long. This is my reply.

    If you get a chance do compare Holly Bobo, Lauren Spierer and Micky. It is amazing.

    The three are blonde, blue eyes, about 110 and 5'1". All about 21 and all disappeared without a trace.

    I think it was JVM or NG that showed the three girls pictures. Wow.

    Am sure this isn't allowed, but I do think it is very relevant.

    I don't recall Tim Miller being in Louisiana for a search in the past (I could be wrong or was just not aware of any).

    Would like to let Mr. Miller and his crews know how welcome they are here and that we as Louisianians appreciate them.

    Am challenging all my Louisiana friends to donate to TES $10+. Are we on Louisiana and our other WS friends!?? I am!

    Possible, blow to the side of the head caused a slow bleed. Unfortunately if that were the case, I would think whoever found the bike would say something and we have nothing yet! I just hope we don't have another serial killer on the loose!

She was familiar with him and stopped to say hello giving him that opportunity. Are there any neighbors that live alone? Possibly a loner type? Is LE planning on going door to door? It doesnt seem to me that she got very far. Maybe I watch too much TV, but it is possible that the abducter could have her in his house right under our noses.
    I agree. If a local abducted her, she could be kept captive in the home. That is probably one of the best scenarios at this point.

    They didn't identify the place--NG called it a store--and Craft confirmed it was somewhere between Brettly's and Mickey's.

    This has me thinking- maybe the perp hit her with his vehcile and then took her. Sean Vincent Gillis (the lesser-known Baton Rouge Serial killer, arrested in 2005) hit one of his victimes, a jogger he had been stalking for sometime, while she was jogging. He hit her with his car, threw her in his car and then took her home to rape, kill, and mutilate her. She was jogging in a semi-residential middle class area off a main path (Quail Rd off of a main street, Perkins, for the locals) I think I daylight.

    Maybe perp hit Mickey with his vehicle, took her bike, too or someone came later and scooped up bike. I know we think someone would have heard the crash, but I don't think anyone did in the Gillis murder/abduction of the jogger.

    What keeps coming to my mind in this case is something that happened to my brother two years ago. He was bike riding on a country road in upstate NY and a woman in a car hit him. Literally hit and drove him several feet off the road. He broke several ribs ( only ) but you know what the first thing the woman driver said? She said, "Are you Single???...because people DO MEET this way"!!! ) WTH... this struck me as a very strange thing to say considering he was sprawled out and injured.

    But ....OT or not. for what ever it is worth....I keep thinking of that and seeing Poor MS run off the road in the middle of the night...then abducted by some truck or van by someone or "plural people" that took everything with them. I hate the thought and reality of human trafficking.:::shudder::: :-(

    I really really, do not think that she voluntarily " ran away". Kids in close families do not miss their siblings graduations.

    :-(
    Praying for the missing.
    We have to teach our kids how to be smarter/safer in our world.

    CajunCoDe, me too (initial thought). But I don't know the area.

    I can see several scenarios.

    WRT (with regard to) someone watching her and pouncing when the time was rite (stranger or acquaintance), I still think someone may have played to her love of animals. Sure, it was 1am-ish, but apparently it's not uncommon for many people to be out and about that late, in that area. And any area could have someone taking their dog for the last walk of the day.

    I still think accident or hit-and-run, but maybe that is becuz I prefer to think of the best case scenarios where she could still be alive and rescued. From everything said about her from those that know her, to me, voluntarily missing is the least likely.

    I wish that LE would do a door-to-door search, starting with her likeliest route home from BW's, and then on the likeliest alternate routes.

    Yes, I followed that case from Day 1. Some differences were that the husband (RIP) had a high BAC, their vehicle hit a pole, and there was a snow blizzard that nite and afterwards. There had been searchers (when weather allowed) but they didn't find her until enough snow had melted. Really sad case as they had several young to teen children. She (RIP) had an ironic, poignant recent or last post on her FB, as well.

    Oh, Isabelle, I hope not, too. I live in BR and lived through Derrick Todd Lee and Sean Vincent Gillis. Scary time is an understatement....

    I had read somewhere where a person was talking about the similarities and also mentioned a kelly bordeaux (sp?)

    It was very sad. I'm trying to recall their name because I have forgotten how far she walked but it was outside the grid search. The accident occurred in the country on basically flat land that was not wooded but rather empty fields.
    In that case there was speculation she had run off or been abducted by a random perp after the accident. Also she had left a lone slipper by the roadside.

    I am baffled by the lack of evidence and or LE not being able to give anything to the public in Mickeys case. I wasnt fond of Occams Razor (sp?) when I first joined WS but I try to keep it in the forefront of my thoughts.

    The simplest explanation is what?

    Schmidty - I used to love the hot dogs from that place! 15-20 years ago when I was in high school. I'm not sure if they are still as good, I don't eat hot dogs anymore.

    -------

    I really don't think she took Souvenier Gate, because I think it would be dangerous on a bike especially at night.

    -------

    I know what they are saying about the footage from cameras at night. The video from where my husband works is on the route facing the street but there's a field in between and all you could see were the blur of headlight from the vehicles. You couldn't even really tell what type of vehicle they were or what lane they were in, but it did show that there was a good amount of vehicle traffic down that road at that time. I certainly couldn't see any pedestrians or bikers.

    We wouldn't have to donate as WS reps, it was meant to be a challenge, i.e., 'match me'!

    So - where is she? This is driving me nuts. Do you guys think she's going to be found soon, or is this going to be one of those mysteries that stay unsolved, and will be remembered in a few years only on the anniversaries of her disappearance. Good Lord I hope not.

    Hoping MS was having some problems maybe with school and had to get away, rather than face them and her family. Nothing else matters when a child is missing. Any problelm/s can be solved, the only important thing is that the child is found safe! God I hope she is alright.

    Hi, I've just read all three threads regarding this case, partly because I live about 40 minutes from Lafayette, (its where we small towners frequently shop/eat/play), so everyone near is afraid & concerned, and also because she seems like such a likable, sweet girl. Prayers for her family.
    But what I was wondering, is anyone else curious about BW's supposed GF? What were her feelings about the seemingly very close friendship he had with MS? Where was she the night MS was hanging out with her BF til 2am? I definitely don't mean to sound accusatory, it's just another thought on someone who, by default, knew MS pretty well...and possibly her comings & goings. Like I said, I'm totally just curious! I hope it doesn't offend anyone who may know them.
