Mickey Shunick

It’s been over four days since Lafayette’s Mickey Shunick went missing after leaving a friend’s house near University and Congress on a bike. Her destination was Gov. Miro Street near Ambassador but as we all know, she never made it.

A huge effort has been made by her friends and family along with countless others who have joined the Find Mickey Now! team.

Here’s a video that was put together by one of Mickey’s friends, Josh Coen to help in getting the word out about the search for Mickey Shunick.
