Police investigating a possible new clue in the case of a missing Lafayette woman determined it was a false alarm.
Dive teams from the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office were called in to help Wednesday night after sonar equipment indicated an item in the water near where Mickey Shunick's bike was found.
"There was this area where they felt they needed to be checked again, so equipment was brought back out," said Cpl. Paul Mouton with the Lafayette Police Department. "They pinpointed the location of that item and, as a result, divers were called out and put back into the water."
The item turned out to be a piece of wood that police said is not related to the case.
Shunick disappeared May 19 while riding her bike home in Lafayette.
Fishermen found her bike last Sunday at the Whiskey Bay exit off Interstate 10.
Lafayette police released new details Tuesday about an analysis by the Louisiana State Police crime lab into the bicycle that was found.
They stated there was
damage to the rear of the bike, but they did not elaborate about how the
bike might have been damaged.
Police said they believe the bike was
dumped in that area the same morning Shunick disappeared.
They also do
not believe the bike was thrown from the overpass into the water below.
Instead, they believe whomever dumped the bike brought it to the swampy
area and tossed it into the water.
Police said they are still following up
on leads and encouraged the public to be as
specific as possible when calling in tips regarding the case.
