Report: Missing Lafayette college student's body found

Updated:

Lafayette, La. - Lafayette police say they are confident that they've found the body of missing college student Mickey Shunick in Evangeline Parish, and that her family has been notified of their findings.

That report comes from FOX 8 affiliate WBRZ in Baton Rouge.

In May, Shunick disappeared just days before turning 22, as she rode her bike from a friend's house near the University of Lafayette-Louisiana.  She was a student there.  Investigators found the bike later in a swampy area 25 miles away.

Brandon Scott Lavergne, a registered sex offender, has been charged with her kidnapping and murder.

Authorities found the remains while searching land near state Highways 10 and 13.
