    I'm not certain, but I believe one of them is a friend of the family. I think he's a college student.

    I am also quite surprised we have not seen an interview with the fishermen that called in the bike tip...

    Yes Crocus and many of those volunteers (like my daughter) don't even know Mickey or her family. They just want to help. They are searching in some pretty bad conditions, tall weeds, forest, poison ivy and this terrible heat and many of them just keep going back to volunteer. My daughter says it becomes personal once you are involved and you just don't want to give up searching.

I feel like the page (at least until recently) was still refuting that it was even her bike found when I believe that is pretty much completely confirmed?
    It just seems counterproductive to me. Clearly, the bike was found, and LE announced they would be searching the area and the water. Those are facts. Other search actions may need to be based on this new info. I understand their need to not want to think about what anything being found could mean, but it does not seem helpful to dispute info with such force. JMO
    Just my opinion, of course.

    It couldn't have been after the bike was found?

    Looking at Google Earth at the above coordinates, I see a problem with the pull-over-and-dump scenario. Look at the bridge as it crosses the river. That's where it gets very narrow, with no shoulder to pull over! Remember how many bad wrecks happen on that bridge? Got stuck once for 6 hours a few years back after two trucks tangled at the top.

    To have dumped the bike so it landed under the bridgel, the perp would had to have stopped IN the traffic lane - liable to be rear-ended at any second by traffic coming from behind.

    Maybe the perp had to walk it under the bridge after all. After all, look at the map - the trees are cleared. He could have carried - or driven - the bike back under the bridge.

    Remembering how there is absolutely no shoulder there - just two lanes - how could he have stopped to throw the bike over?!

It seems I'm not the only one who has seen the beat-up Caddy; we need that guy as a witness.
    Yes: Hoot hoot.

    I agree re: the Caddy. That's one vehicle that won't be hard to spot. And I'm out kid-taxiing enough to be able to spot it if it's there to spot.

    Plus, I've got a crew of observant (read: nosy) individuals under my roof. Heh.

    Well, I just saw the Shunick case on national FoxNews. But no mention of the bike. Must have been an old report.

    This is basically all you see for many many miles (from Whiskey Bay exit, all the way to ...? right before you hit Baton Rouge). Some areas along the route are more shrouded by trees, and as you can imagine, at night, you can't see anything. But yeah, big mass of swampy terrain with alligators.

    A lot of people go to the Atchafalaya Basin for recreation, and Whiskey Bay is one of the areas used to launch into it. I wish I had a better picture of Whiskey Bay exit, but I don't.
    Good pic to give the idea.

    We have to remember, too, though...the climate of discussion on FB is much, much more difficult to manage than here at WS. Rumors are rampant and Facebookers/Tweeters will repost in the blink of an eye until a rumor miraculously morphs into fact. I can't blame the family for trying to get a grip on that. Maybe it's simply a matter of overcompensation?

    Hello there!
    We have not heard about the condition of the bike. So far no info has been released that we know of.

    Turkey season is over. What is the next or ongoing hunting season and for what would there be hunters going out for?
    I was reading that birders use the Achafalaya Basin as a great place to watch the birdies.
