The Shunick family has hired a private investigator to assist them in their search for Mickey Shunick, the UL Lafayette anthropology student who went missing nearly two weeks ago.

The Find Mickey Shunick Now Facebook page announced Wednesday afternoon that anyone with information pertaining to the case is asked to call John Abdella at (337) 235-0270 in conjunction with the Lafayette Police Department tips line at (337) 291-8633.

We're not exactly sure why the family has hired the private investigator, but we'll seek to get you that information as soon as possible.
