Mickey's Family and Friends Relieved Nothing was Found in St. Landry Search

Emotions ran high when Mickey's family and friends found out authorities were digging up possible graves near Brandon Lavergne's home.

"I'd like to find out how he was involved in this, did he take my daughter is she still alive, if not where's the body?" wondered Tom Shunick, Mickey's father.

Tom Shunick and family and friends say they were relieved when the search turned up nothing, but tom still needs answers.

"Still got a little ray of hope out there. It helps the day go on better, but we certainly need to get some closure on this,' said Shunick.

So it's business as usual at headquarters. New T-shirts, more bracelets, and more flyers all over the volunteer headquarters. Volunteer Jay Steiner says Brandon Lavergne's arrest and new developments helped renew interest in finding Mickey.

"We have 20 to 30 people come in a day, whereas days before the arrest, we had days maybe 1 person came in to pick up a flyer," said Steiner.

People like 14-year-old Mia Leger. Leger says seeing Mickey's face day after day has made her want to lend a hand.

"I just wanted to come and get a shirt to help the family and show support make sure they find her just for closure," said Leger.

"It's great someone is in custody, but the one person we want to see is Mickey. When she's back, that's when we'll stop," said Steiner.
