Equusearch, the Texas based company, which has been helping out--is no longer directly involved.
The group moving on to help in the search for another missing person over in Mississippi.
Founder and director of EquuSearch Tim Miller told us that his team only operates in an area as long as there are viable clues and leads coming in.
Since there have been no big breaks since last weekend---when Mickey's bicycle was found--Miller and his team felt that their presence was no longer needed.
But, if there are any new clues as to the whereabouts of Mickey Shunick, they'll be back in Lafayette.
Tim Miller isn't hesitant to make multiple trips.
"I mean this search for Mickey is far being over. For an example, I went to Aruba nine different times on Natalie Holloway. Well, Lafayette's a lot closer to Houston than Aruba."
Charlene Shunick knows if the family needs EquuSearch, they are just a phone call away.
"So they're going to go back to Houston, it's like a two hour plane ride from here. As soon as they get another lead they're going to come back. But they have other things that they can be doing at this point that they can't be doing here."
The family still very optimistic--they say they had a great turnout at Blackham Colosseum today for continued volunteer searches.
If you want to help them---Blackham Colliseum is the place to go. The Shunick family says they are in need of both volunteers, and anyone with access to a boat for searches on the water.
