Dive Teams Again Searching Whiskey Bay For Clues In Mickey Shunick Case [AUDIO]
LAFAYETTE, La. (KPEL) — Dive teams are back at the Whiskey Bay, possibly searching for clues in the disappearance of Mickey Shunick, but Lafayette Police say there is no new information in the case.
Cpl. Kyle Soriez, a Lafayette Police Department spokesperson, said sonar has been used in the past, and dive teams would be sent to confirm whether something picked up on the sonar is simply a piece of debris.
“Thankfully, that’s what it’s been in the past,” Soriez said. “There’s nothing new. There’s nothing breaking.”
Soriez could not confirm why teams were sent out to the area again today.
This is the third time since Shunick disappeared that police have searched the area of the Whiskey Bay where her bike was found beneath an Interstate 10 overpass. Those searches turned up no other evidence, and her bike was sent to the State Police Crime Lab where it is being looked over by forensics experts.
Shunick disappeared May 19 in the early morning hours after a night out with friends. She was last seen on surveillance cameras riding her bike near the Lafayette City-Parish Consolidated Government building at the corner of St. Landry Street and University Ave.
