Locals: per FB, search HQs are moving at 7pm tonite, to Blackham Colloseum. They're asking for volunteers to help move.

Much larger venue, closer to MS route. Also eases traffic burden on campus and relieves campus PD from handling that large influx of volunteers and donors, in the campus area. Easier in and out drop off point also. Almost unlimited parking, too.

btw- This is my first post here, but I've been religiously following this case for the past three days. As a college kid, I used to ride my bike around the inner ring suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio. Now, going on 40, I realize anything could have happened, but i just didn't see it then. I hope by some miracle Mickey is okay.
Great first post. and welcome to WS.

Now that we know that BW is telling the truth about how his and Mickey's night unfolded and how she left his house to bike home as she had done so many times before, I'd like to say something.
Brettly, when I listened to you describing your relationship with Mickey when you were interviewed in the noisy gymnasium, I recognized that you two have reached a higher level of being and a higher level of friendship that seems rare these days. In our sex driven society it is my opinion that so much of life's real meaning and the art of practicing behaviors within relationships that bring genuine connection, fulfillment and intellectual joy have been lost. As I listened to you speak of MS's interests and how she focuses on her own pursuits and, as her friend, you were (I hope 'were' becomes 'are') able to take part in those interests too, I was inspired.

Today it seems that topics of conversation revolve mostly around who is doing what with whom and who is not fitting into our own molds, etc. The focus today seems so often to be on the other guy versus growing our own selves and developing our own interests. Friendship is a wonderful thing and appreciating one another like it seems you two do is a relationship to be forever cherished and grateful for. Anyway, the generous quality I noticed about you when you spoke about MS is one that I don't often notice anymore. Thank you for being a good example. You appear to be a great friend and person. My condolences for what you have been through and are going through on Mickey's behalf.

Yes it is. Daughter and I searched up and down that coulee, in the cement drains, fields, etc. on Wednesday. I think MS's friends had searched that area prior as well. I still think that area from the end of St. Landry (by Blackham) and Coliseum Rd. is where she was abducted. JMO though.

That exact thing happened in the Laura Spierer case. A white pickup truck was seen in the surveillance vids around the same time she was walking home alone at 3:30 am. And they showed the truck in the media. It turned out it was a nighttime employee in the are who came forward and showed his work hours, which was his alibi. Mystery solved.

Jess, my son was out on his bike and verifies what you saw. I passed by later and didn't see anything, but there was plenty of activity earlier, apparently.

I thought I saw the search coordinator there with one officer awhile ago! Makes perfect sense to have the Coliseum for search headquarters.

My opinion is she was abducted either by Coliseum Rd. or in front of the old Lourdes. Once she was on Cajundome Blvd. she would have been in a well-lit area and safer. The hospital just stands out to me because the area is darker, there are ample spaces to be ambushed at, businesses in that area are closed (less residential to hear a commotion)....same with Coliseum Rd.--fields and Blackham and a lack of residences.

The question that nags me is where is her bike? If they were just abducting her, they'd take her and leave the bike in most cases, or ditch the bike somewhere that would probably have been found already. I still believe it's someone she knows who offered her a ride and without resistance had time to clear up evidence and dispose of things more efficiently.

I agree... once you cross Dean Street on St. Landry, there is just alot of empty space, probably not well lit until you reach Souvenir Gate near the Cajun Dome. That would be the creepiest part of her assumed route, along with the deserted Lourdes Hospital area. Hard to believe my mom had surgery there just last March. It's almost been closed an entire year.

Do the red light cameras constantly record? Just curious as to if they checked footage from the camera on Congress and Guilbeau. That's the first red light camera she would have encountered, if she made it that far, have they released a statement about that?

Like WOAH woe....that's about as beautiful as Brettly & Mickey's friendship. Both the video of Brettly speaking about his dear friend (tho hard to hear - headphones helped) and your post made my eyes water.

If every girl could be so lucky as Mickey to have a friend like Brettly the world would be such a better place.

Thank you muchly for putting those feelings into words. I couldn't agree more.



MICKEY please come home NOW!

Not sure if the above link has been posted. Recap about the video being found and some comments about the video .

The photo of the white truck shows that it is getting ready to take a left from St. Landry onto University. I just looked closely at Google map of the area. If the driver was really out to get Mickey, it looks like he would have taken the first left (off of University) which is Azalea to Parkside. It looks like this route would take him onto St. Mary's which intersects with St. Landry. I think that is close to the Lourdes Hospital which many have said is abandoned. Question for locals: what is it like on St. Landry’s right after crossing St. Mary’s? Is that the dark and abandoned looking area others have referred to? Sorry if this post is confusing! I’m just trying to get a sense of the area – kind of hard to do here in New Hampshire!

I was just thinking about if they had any info on cameras further down her path, to narrow down the area where she could have been abducted--right now the focus is St. Landry, because that is where she was last seen, and I'm wondering if they ruled out her getting any closer to her home. That's the closest camera I can think of that she may have crossed. Or perhaps Johnston and Foreman, but I'd think Congress would be more likely.

It's not very well lit (not as well lit as a main road, but there are streetlights) nor busy. The hospital takes up quite a bit of space and across the street is an eye clinic and another parking garage, a funeral home, a bit further down St. Mary on one side is a daycare and on the other, doctors offices and a parking lot for the college....so it's not a well-populated area unless it's a school day (people parking and walking to classes)....there is constant daytime car/pedestrian flow, but not heavy flow, and during the night traffic drops off--I'd consider it mostly residential.

Methinks they wouldn't stop looking at video after finding the first image. They have either exhausted their efforts and have looked at all the tape available and what they've released are the only images they found or, they're still looking at video to see if there are more images of MS to be found.

Also, LE has asked that all personal video images be examined as well in hopes of coming up with more evidence.

Coulee - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Baton Rouge and New Orleans, we call them 'ditches'.

St. Landry between St. Mary's and St. Julien is not necessarily poorly lit... just deserted since Lourdes hospital moved across town. St. Landry between St. Julien and Dean Street is not as well lit, but there are alot of residential homes lining the street there. Past Dean Street is alot of open space and fields, with a handful of buildings scattered about and not occupied at that late hour.

Yes, I would assume they wouldn't stop looking. I just didn't know if an official statement had been made saying that they didn't find anything else or if they're still reviewing tapes.
