During the search for MS, was it ever reported/mentioned that landfills were searched? I don't recall hearing this, but could be wrong. Thanks.

megsy -- Thanks for the heads up. Cullens is much closer to MS' house; I don't know that the checkpoint would be affecting the streets quite that much where MS was last seen.

But, hey, what do I know? I'm not usually out and about that late, so it's entirely possible that people would be cutting through on streets anywhere and everywhere to avoid it.

Good question. I don't even know where any are. There is a huge lot full of "stuff" near hubby's work, but I don't know if it's considered a landfill.

The Photobucket link is much better - it opens bigger, so instead of looking at the map below, you should go to this LINK to view Map CF-1.

You may want to bookmark it... I purposely did not try to sort out which white truck is which. On the map, they're all "trucks," and I have included the mystery truck in the Old Car photo. I'll be offline for awhile, as I have something to do.

But I hope this helps make some sense of the cameras and the vehicles :-)

In my head, I picture that people would be taking all kinds of other routes to avoid the checkpoint but I guess not...

I also pictured that there would have been a decent amount of traffic along MS's route too at that time on a Friday night.

Clearly I know nothing about the city in which I live.

Is it possible that MS could have gotten to the checkpoint at/near Cullens without being seen on video?

It's probably LE.

I don't think Joe Citizen can add people to those sites.

Yes thanks. I missed it.

eta: And now that I watched, I see myself for a brief moment. This is older footage though. At 1:11, I am the last person in the frame, black tee and jeans. This was during a residential area search. Erin followed us for quite a while, in heels might I add.

I found it odd that she was not listed on NamUs.

I attempted to find a police report for this but found nothing. So it would appear to be a rumor or it turned out to be nothing since theres nothing on file.

Then they need to be called on it. If Mickey is truly missing, and we here all know that she is, then LE needs to give the public an explanation as to why she isn't being listed as such on their site.

I'd like to clear up something from the last thread. A few people were discussing that Brettly Wilson is straight, and not gay, because he had an ex-girlfriend.

We know for a fact that Brettly Wilson dated a woman in the past, but you can't surmise that he's straight based upon that. Wilson stated that he and Mickey have been friends for three or four years, and that they became friends after he broke up with his ex-girlfriend, Mickey's friend.

In this video linked in this post, Brettly states that he and Mickey would jokingly try to see who could pick up guys more quickly. It seems pretty safe to say that Wilson is no longer entirely heterosexual, if he ever was.

Keep in mind that Wilson's breakup with his ex, and his subsequent friendship with Mickey, would have occurred around the time they graduated from high school and moved on to college.

If she would have travelled that far down Johnston, I would assume there would be more video of her since Johnston is lined with businesses. I don't know though.

We've heard about the WB search and that was a big media thing, so if any other significant searches were made you'd think the media would have been on it. Pardon my feelings, but I don't think that much has been done in terms of active searching by LE. I get the feeling they are waiting for the big tip and letting volunteers search, and of course TES when they were here. Would like to ask one of the media outlets in Lafayette whether they know what active searches LE has been involved in. From my own experience, I have come to understand that government and police are just other job categories.

I'm not sure what that HelloLafayette site was, but it appeared that they only had kids listed. Also is you scroll down you can see some crime stats from colleges in the state but no mention of UL Lafayette...)

Is it confirmed that LE checked for footage for Mickey's whole assumed and alternate routes?

I guess they have.........but still.

Every time I look at that map, I think she turned on Brashear.

As long as I'm being a moron...why, again, does anyone think she didn't go straight down (up?) Congress if she was going straight home?

I missed a lot of stuff, sorry. I can't keep up.
