BATON ROUGE, LA.(NBC33) — Lafayette - its day 24 in the search for 22 year old Lafayette resident Mickey Shunick. Volunteer and officials are still searching for any clues to her disappearance. The missing Mickey headquarters has moved out of Blackham Coliseum and set up a new location in the south college shopping center near the bowling alley. A major change is eliminating the search parties and instead concentrating more on getting flyers out and working social media to generate awareness.
