    I was wondering about that. The trucks have eaten my brain.

For all I know the court gives them a debit card to use at their local bars!
    May I mention that Louisiana has a 3 strikes law. The driver may have had several OWI/DWI offenses or felony arrests. If convicted of a 3rd, he/she could be looking at a lengthy sentence or possibly life in prison. This would give them motive to make the calculated decision to take the bike and MS to cover up their crime. The driver may have been impaired (2-3 drinks), not necessarily drunk, and still had the ability to think it through. Damned if you don't, damned if you do type of scenario.

    I'm coming in on this a little late in the game, I apologize if another contributor has already touched on this point.

    Per carnival workers: Ms. McElfresh feels that LE "(does) not seem to be leaning in that direction right now."

    There does seem to be a lack of cohesion, but I'm far away. My perception could be very wrong.

    If you go to 224 St. Landry on Google street view and head toward Circle K you quickly come across a pickup that pretty much matches the pic of one they're looking for. Has anybody seen that?

    one problem with many small threads is that once you get behind its annoying when you cant quote someone because the thread you're on was closed and everyone else has moved to a new one.

    Yes, I know. Why has it taken the reporter so long to check this out? That's what amazed me.

    According to Amanda, they think the bike was placed there the same day/early morning.

    Yeah there are a million of those around here. It was noticed already.

    And who knows if this vehicle they are looking for has anything to do with her disappearance. So frustrating.

    I have a hunch that (s)he is one of us here on WS. But I'll let them speak up if they wish to be identified.

    For some reason I feel really skeptical about that. Exactly how did they track down the owners of vehicles (especially white trucks) without plates? If drivers had come forward due to the news, I could buy that, but not 'tracking them down'.

    While the "Power of Social media" served it's role in spreading the word on the disappearence, it has likely become a hinderence to the police investigations. There is a good chance that, if the perp was local to the area, that they continuously browse the web page to get a feel for how close the investigators are getting.

    To solve this problem, they instruct the posts to stop so they can pursue suspect with a required level of secrecy.

    The same can be said for the official searches.

    But in the same sentence she say's, "I'm not sure if that is something the police have looked at"
    Sort of sounds like she should have just said " I don't know one way or the other" . Some of her answers need to have an IMO at the end!

    Y'know, i've been thinking... on the abduction angle - if Mickey was bumped & then accepted a ride - I don't think she'd have gotten into the truck if there were more than one occupant. If she did, it would be hard for that driver to subdue her while driving, unless it were at gunpoint.

    To me, if it were planned, if she were bumped, chloroform may have been involved. Works quickly and if you get someone in a headlock, she could have been knocked out and in the truck w/ bike in 30 seconds flat.

    Above is the truck in question. It has been identified as a white 2007 or later Chevy z71. It was following Mickey on St Landry. The owner has not come forward.

    http://www.findmickeynow.com/mickey2.jpeg

    This is also a white Chevy z71. It drove east on St Landry soon after Mickey and the first Chevey drove west. Are they the same truck? That seems to be a fundimental question. We definitly get a better view of this truck and are able to identify more details. I do not claim to be a "car guy" but it does look to be a mid to late 2000s Chevy Silverado Crew Cab with a distinctive gas cap cover. I would think that an expert with better copies of the photo could tell if they are the same, and if they are, be able to get a very clear description of the vehicle.

    If they are the same, there can't be that many of that particular model in the Lafayette/Baton Rouge area. This would have been near $50K new and still worth around $25K. Even if the driver doesn't come forward, I'll bet the guy has plenty of friends or co-workers who know he drives that P/U. Someone will drop a dime on him soon enough.

    If they are different, it might be harder to pin down the exact model making the haystack a little bigger to sort through. It will increase the chance of the driver of the east bound truck coming forward and he may have either seen something suspicious or just noticed a truck very similar to his passing him on St Landry.

    At this point, I don't see how anyone who was driving a white Chevy z71 near the Circle K on St Landry that night around 1:40 AM is not aware that his truck has gotten famous.

    Ms. McElfresh on LE's determination that the bike wound up in Whiskey Bay soon after Mickey's disappearance: currently "it's a best-guess scenario," she thinks.

    I also inquired as to the quality of the video and the camera and whether or not it is constantly recording. But they won't answer that
