Two Non-Profit Search Groups Also Looking For Mickey Shunick
LAFAYETTE, La. -- Though police in Lafayette are not saying whether they are working any major leads in the disappearance case of Mickey Shunick, the search for her continues, and two non-profit search groups are assisting volunteers here.
Christina Silvetti, a spokesperson for the Shunick family, says Texas Equusearch, who had left town last week after running out of leads, is on its way back. Tim Miller, CEO of the organization, had said then his group would could back if there were any major leads to pursue.
Cpl. Kyle Soriez, a Lafayette Police Department spokesperson, says there is no new information to report. He would not confirm if police were working on new leads.
Another group, Texas-based Special K-9s Search and Recovery, is also assisting in the search, but Silvetti says they are not officially affiliated with the volunteer efforts based out of Blackham Coliseum.
"They're sort of doing their own thing," Silvetti says.
According to their website, Special K-9s is a non-profit search organization that specializes in retrieving human remains through the use of cadaver dogs.
