    Can you send them the flyer?

    HERE IT IS:

    OLD CAR

    Appreciate it!
    You mentioned getting permission to distribute the flyer, so should I wait to post on FB then?

    Been bottle feeding preemie kittens and following along....

    There has to be more video/pics LE is not sharing. How far apart are these cameras? I wish they would definitely say if that's the LAST pic of her or not.

    I totally agree. I just wish I knew why.

    But she obviously did not do that. I suffice it to say that instead of taking a completely opposite and different route (st john to st landry t oazalea to congress) that she merged what BW thought she did but switched the first half of her ride until she got to st landry. From St landry, I hate to say it but I think she was going to coliseum blvd and cajundome in those desolate fields.
    No, BW never said that she would take Parkside to Congress, he had specifically said at one point that she didn't do that. One of the first maps that the news broadcasted last week said that she would typically take a left from Ryan St. to Parkside, then turn Right onto St. John (which turns into St. Landry), and onto Coliseum to the bike path. Then she'd go to Congress, turn left and continue straight until she got to the neighborhood between Guilbeau and Amabassador Caffery, she would cut through there and go straight through the light on Bonaire.

    If she turned on to Congress from Parkside, there would be no need to go down St. Mary or Cajundome Blvd, she'd already be on the street that would get her home.

    i have to respectfully disagree, as i have once been a college student, not too terribly long ago. as were many of my friends. although terribly terribly foolish, i know quite a few young college girls that went to dangerous parts of town in pursuit of recreational drugs.

    Bottle feeding preemie kittens?? You're my new best friend

    I agree that LE must be keeping a few things to themselves. It's frustrating because I feel like I've worn out all my speculations, but I'm trying to have faith in them.

    True, but for all three vehicles to be there, that leads me to believe it was a short period of time. I have a hard time believing that all three would spend more than five minutes at the gas station.

    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

    I don't know. I just sent the detective the info 10 minutes ago.

    After speaking with them twice, if they didn't want the info spread, they should have called me back, seems to me - though they have a lot of tips to go through.

    The thing is - this is a local car - by getting it out there, SOMEONE knows who he is!

    By not getting it out there, more time goes by with a bad description of the car.

    Seems to be if they didn't want the car ID-ed, they shouldn't have released ANY description.

    What do y'all think? Don't they want the car ID-ed - shown by them describing it?

    That's what she may have done - arranged with someone there to drop some off to her later (which may have happened on her way home). Text message my have been 'look for me around St. Landry Street'. They don't walk around with it on them to sell I don't think.

    If that happened, the person may have come forward out of consciousness (even though it just blew his cover as a dealer - maybe just small time). But for that reason, maybe he wouldn't come forward. Depends on how into it he is and if he's bringing in big bucks or just helps out his friends.

    This should be (if I linked it right, lol) the route Mickey would have been taking home, to clear up any confusion.

    Ok, so I can't make the link work...but the pic is #53 on the site.

    When it comes to the missing flyer I think it was either placed by media for dramatic effect or placed by a volunteer.

    I am perplexed as to why they would dispatch a civilian search team to such a hazardous area in total darkness, this to me was fool hardy. I know if I am out in the darkness here where I live I could not find my butt with both hands, none the less be sure if I saw a bike, missing poster, or anything else. Searches in total darkness don't bear fruit, so that is very scary that they put you in harms way. or do you all choose to go to Whiskey bay that night on your own? I am very curious? TIA....IMHO....and all that stuff...

    I'm glad you're clarifying because as I'm looking at the map, it just didn't make sense for her to get off congress at all.

    I lived in Lafayette all my life up until we moved to Texas three years ago and as well as I know that area, this is all overwhelming and confusing.

    I've been here a longggg time, not my first rodeo, and one thing that we see over and over again, LE will not give call backs on anything unless you have the info they need. Now, if you actually knew who owned that vehicle, they would immediately get back to you. It's a shame, and can make you very angry, but that's how they treat these cases. Not saying it's wrong, but they want specific info.

    Its funny that you say this because I always thought artmosphere was a "hooka lounge" sort of place. Like since years back

    Dang it, I somehow gave you the link to an older version of the OLD CAR poster.... that didn't show the body damage as well.

    THIS IS THE CORRECT ONE!

    SORRY!

    That's perfectly rational, but...I don't know, I have a hard time believing she would do that. Leave on her own and bike further into a bad part of town to get pot at 2 AM, I mean. Didn't she say she was too tired to wait for the others to go to Mel's Diner? Marijuana isn't that big of a deal (yes I know it's illegal); I don't think she would have kept it from everyone she knew.

    I kind of think that if she did deviate from her usual route, it may have been to meet a guy. I have a hard time believing that a young, beautiful college girl had "no boyfriends." Maybe she wanted to keep him secret for some reason.

    JMO of course!

    Slowbutshelly, did the search organizers send you out to the basin that late at night (midnight?) or did you and a group just decide to do so? TIA

    When LE is quiet...sometimes it means they are onto the case and have a good handle on it.

    Of course, that is not always true, AKA Holly Bobo...
    Just my opinion, of course.

    Having staked out that area most of this weekend, at that time of night the average vehicle was there for around 7-8 minutes

    Mickey most likely would of trusted a woman or a couple (man & woman) to drive her home or to the hospital more so than a single man if she was offered a ride or her bike was accidentally hit.

    Hollyblue's reply---------
    You make a very good point. I've thought about the xgf of BW. Not accusing her at all, but all bases should be covered. Didn't BW say she was a friend of MS before...and that's how he met her? Then in the "inaudible" long interview, didn't BW say that her and Mickey were estranged now? I just can't get past the thought that someone did not want her moving to NO...or with BW. They were going to proceed with the move the 1st of June right? Were classes already over for the summer when she went missing?
    ***********
    The above really caught my attention.

    Indeed, all bases should be covered.

    If BW were suspecting that his xgf played a part in Mickey's abduction, then his suspicion could account for BW's odd behavior while being interviewed, as well as his statement (paraphrase) "YOU know what you have done....."

    Well, he probably hasn't got the e-mail yet.

    But the e-mail's pretty specific.

    I'm a witness claiming to have seen a specific car of a specific color in town, possibly with the same body damage.

    Hope it helps!
