Entering her senior year, University of Louisiana at Lafayette graduation was last weekend. What are the rules in regards to posting text messages? I've been getting some info but I can't confirm anything right now.

Nurse, my dad is from Germany and we were just there in February, and you're so right. Everyone on their bikes all the time. The bike community in Lafayette is HUGE, so it's not uncommon to see people on their bikes at all times of the day and night.

I wondered the same thing until I watched the interview with him (BW). I just can't imagine this is fake.

I agree with PJ, watch the video and you'll see how upset BW is.

I was so hoping to log on and see some good news.

Not sure if this has been asked and answered, but how many time has she traveled this route and how often? I know she is an avid bicyclist, just a little worried if she does travel this route often someone has been watching her.

Today – the day that would be Mickey Shunick’s 22nd birthday – hundreds arrived by car, bike and foot to 100 Ryan St. in effort to spread the word about the missing woman, who has not been seen since about 2 a.m. Saturday.
Quote:
Mickey’s father, Tom Shunick, expressed anger that the investigation could not begin in full force until today but gratitude for the volunteers dedicated to the cause.

“None of the video cameras got checked over the weekend because the managers weren’t in and waited two days to check the video cameras,” he said. “If somebody has abducted her and taken her on the interstate or something, they got a two day head start. But I’m really impressed with all of this over here. I’ve never seen such support.”

aside: I just keep thinking of her poor parents trying to host a graduation for her brother (what an exciting time) and at the same time looking for Mickey and worrying about what happened to her :-(

I feel for BW, he looks sincere, seems like a gentle soul...
since I didn't see tears, I'm not 100% certain though...

BW also kept saying "is" and referring to MS in the present form not past tense like seen in so many other cases where someone is a suspected POI and slips etc. JMO

Not arguing, but wondering since I am not familiar with the area: How common is it to see a beautiful young woman riding alone 2am in Lafayette.

It's not uncommon at all.

Has a donation account been set up for her? Inquiries from donors coming in locally and from out of state.

Not uncommon. Especially on a Sat night in the college area.

Are they not saying ANYTHING about any sort of surveillance yet? Has there not been ONE single video of her on any of the roads she may have traveled on? Not only do you have places of business that have cameras (stores, banks, etc.) but in Lafayette we have live traffic cameras, and then there are the speed/red light cameras...I think those record at all times to be able to catch people speeding/running red lights and you can watch the traffic cameras on your iphone. Surely there must be ONE video that catches her somewhere so that the police/people have a better idea of where to look.

Also, even though I'm happy the police are finally on this case, and while I understand that an adult has the right to come & go as they please and & I understand why the police would generally want to wait out a time period before classifying someone as a missing person, there must be some sort of middle ground for those rules. If she was abducted, someone now has quite a headstart on the search efforts. She apparently- from what EVERYONE says about her- would NOT be the type to disappear and she has done so under (what I would consider) somewhat suspicious circumstances- at 2 am, on a bike. I wish the police had stepped in on Saturday or Sunday.

First information I've seen related to the cell phone. Not debating Huffpo is MSM but there is additional information...

I tried to find out if there were any recent reports of attempted attacks against women in the area, but my search skills are not good... often in these kinds of cases we see it's not the first attempt....
might even be something not reported, but maybe now with word out that MS is missing, someone will come forward.. hope LE requests anyone with info of this kind comes forward...
Since it's mentioned there this is a large cycling community, they might have info about this?

One article I read (or maybe it was at her facebook page??) said they were reviewing cameras and traffic cameras... and one other article I linked had quoted her father saying alot of the business managers for stores were not around on the weekend so they had to wait until Monday for them to check their footage.. I agree that the weekend seems to have put a wedge into the search for her and I further agree that if it is out of the ordinary (like her case is) they should have waived the 48 hours

Thanks. I dont know Mickey but the thought of a young woman just disappearing into thin air shook me up some. Just wanting to contribute if I can to helping find her. I cant even imagine what a nightmare this is for her family.

That is where I wish the police would've stepped in. How hard would it have been for them to assign TWO cops into collecting and beginning to watch tapes from stores that likely would've been on her route?? They could probably have watched a good portion of the footage on a Sunday alone if it had been collected on a Saturday.

And why did a manager have to be there to check those tapes? If I owned a business and someone went to one of my employees and told them they needed to be checked, I honestly dont think I'd wait a couple of days until I got around to looking on that tape for a girl that was missing. I could not wait in good conscience until a Monday to watch them to see if I could help. I dont blame her father for being angry for a second.
