May 19, 2012 is a date that forever changed the family and friends of Mickey Shunick. That's the night she disappeared after hanging with some friends in downtown Lafayette.

That summer was quite a trying time for all who knew and loved her.

We know how the story tragically ended as Mickey's body was eventually found in Evangeline Parish.

The case will be featured on NBC's Dateline tonight. The program will air at 9pm.

"When college student Mickey Shunick vanishes, her sister becomes the driving force in a multinational search effort," a promo for the program states.

Her murderer, Brandon Scott Lavergne, pled guilty to her murder and currently is serving a life sentence.
