The Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office has been the lead agency on the case of missing 18-year-old Jacquelyn "Daisy Lynn" Landry. She was reported missing on Tuesday, May 23rd after she did not arrive at a friend's home who she was going to meet. She had last been seen in the area of Kaliste Saloom and Ferrel Roads in Lafayette.
