Police search for missing college student in La.; woman last seen on bicycle in wee hours
LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) ' Louisiana authorities are searching for a college student who has been missing for nearly a week after she was last seen on a bicycle in the early morning hours.
Michaela Shunick, who goes by "Mickey," is a 22-year-old anthropology major at the University of Louisiana. She had been at a house May 19 in a neighborhood popular with college students, and left the home around 2 a.m. on a black bicycle.
Detectives in Lafayette say surveillance video from a local business shows someone on a bicycle the morning Shunick was last seen, and they believe it was Shunick. Investigators are trying to learn more about a white pickup truck also seen on the video in that area.
Shunick is white, with blond hair, and about 5-foot-1 and 115 pounds.
