Private Investigator–Possible Descriptions Of Suspects In Mickey Shunick Disappearance

Mickey Shunick

LAFAYETTE, La. — A private investigator looking into the disappearance of Mickey Shunick says he has a description of a possible person of interest in that case.

John Abdella, who was hired by the Shunick family the day after Mickey disappeared, said two people have given him a description of someone possibly involved in Shunick’s disappearance. Those two people gave almost identical descriptions days apart from each other.

“I found it more than coincidental that they had a similar description,” Abdella said.

Abdella said he has handed that information to investigators with the Lafayette Police Department. Cpl. Kyle Soriez, a police department spokesperson, would not confirm whether investigators received such information, but he did say they are continuing to work hundreds of leads.

Abdella said he has received 500 to 600 leads, including some from psychics.

Shunick, who has been missing since May 19, was last seen on surveillance camera on her bike near the Lafayette Consolidated Government building in the early morning hours that day. A white Chevroley Z-71 was also seen at around the same time, and police continue to search for the driver of that truck.

Shunick’s bike was found a week later underneath an Interstate 10 overpass at the Whiskey Bay exit. A second search of the Whiskey Bay turned up no further evidence, police department sources have said. Shunick’s bike is currently being processed by forensics experts at the state police crime lab.

If you have any information that could crack this case, you’re asked to call the Lafayette Police Department tips line at (337) 291-8633 or Abdella at (337) 235-0270.
