Family and Friends of Mickey Shunick are Keeping Search Efforts Alive

New flyers are going up all over Lafayette as Mickey Shunick's family and friends refuse to let her face be forgotten. It's been a month since Mickey Shunick was last seen and three weeks since police found any evidence leading to her whereabouts. Since then, there have been no new leads.
Volunteers are still tirelessly making flyers, selling bracelets and T-shirts, and using social media to get the word out.

"I've never seen anything like it before with so many people getting together to help out," said Suzanne Ortego.

Ortego doesn't know Mickey, but as a mother of three, she can only imagine what the family is going through.

"We can't let her be forgotten. We can't stop the search. The family needs our support," said Ortego.

Ortego grabbed some flyers and plans on passing them out to everyone she sees.

"I can't go out on a search in a wheelchair, but I can go out and pass some flyers," she added.

Even though the new headquarters are smaller that hasn't stopped people from coming in to help.

"We're stronger than ever. Really, we're more focused and we're more organized than we've ever been before," said Josh Coen.

Family, friends, and volunteers that refuse to give up.

"It's love. The love for our friend and the love for each other and we're going to keep doing it and keep strong," said Coen.

If you want to help the search effort, the new headquarters is located on 2811 Johnston Street in the shopping center where Lafayette Lanes is located. Volunteers will be there weekdays from 8:30 to 5:30 and weekends from 10 to 2.
