LAFAYETTE, LA (WAFB) -
It's been two weeks since detectives found her bike. But nothing else. It's been about three weeks since she was last seen.
At one time volunteers, hundreds of them, were out looking for Mickey. Her relatives still believe she is alive, and they are waiting anxiously for her safe return.
"I thought I'd be back in Dallas by now. We'd find her after a couple of days, stay for a week or two," Charlie Shunick said.
Twenty-three days later, Charlie Shunick is still clad in a T-shirt bearing her sister's name, buttons that bring hope and handmade bracelets from children in the community. Her father, Tom, says he is having a hard time coming to grips with his daughter's disappearance.
"It's been like a long dream, seems like months and months ago," Tom Shunick said.
The Shunicks said volunteers have been their support system. They have been taking notes, turning over leads to police and staying optimistic. They all believe the UL Lafayette student is alive, somewhere.
"Personally, I just don't think she's dead," Charlie Shunick said.
Charlie refuses to give up. She said the most challenging part of the search so far, was having to identify her sister's bike after fishermen found it at Whiskey Bay.
"My stomach did a flip for a second. Then I was like, no," Charlie Shunick said.
"I get that sense every time they go out and drag that river with sonar and take the dogs out and nothing is found," Tom Shunick said.
A family friend hired a private investigator to help find Mickey. They have followed several leads. But they say, so far, no new evidence has surfaced.
"Hopefully with these tips they'll get something and go from there. That's the biggest problem, I guess, there are no clues," Tom Shunick said.
Every day presents a new challenge for the Shunicks, a new possibility Mickey might be found.
They have managed to put aside the many scenarios and focus on what they believe will bring the search to an end, Mickey's return.
"Someone took my sister. I just think someone has her," Charlie Shunick said.
There is a $25,000 reward for any information that helps investigators find Mickey Shunick.
