05/28/2012 11:55 PM by Jim Hummel
With big developments in the Mickey Shunick investigation over the weekend, her family is staying positive.

Whatever the scenario, the family believes Mickey is alive. They have a plea for whoever might be holding her: "Drop her off at a hospital or a safe-have or at a busy street somewhere," said Charlie. "Someone will find her and bring her back to us and that's all we care about."

Exploring Whiskey Bay

Exploring Whiskey Bay

(excellent article.)

It's that one exit on eastbound Interstate 10 that just seems a little bit different than the others.

Travelers who take Exit 127, commonly known as the Whiskey Bay exit, are driving into the definition of seclusion. While most interstate exits lead to at least convenience stores and fast food restaurants, this one — just 30 miles east of Lafayette —is almost completely desolate.

It's also the turn-off linked to the mysterious and high-profile disappearance of Michaela "Mickey" Shunick, last seen May 19 in surveillance footage riding her bicycle. Her bike was discovered a week ago in the waters of Whiskey Bay.

This remote exit has a ramp that curves sharply, almost into a complete circle, and leads onto La. 975. Turn left onto La. 975, go just about 40 yards, and there's a huge white sign with "NO" written in large black letters. The sign is a not-so-subtle reminder that there is no public access into the woods beyond that point and trespassing is prohibited. Visitors clearly are not welcome.
