NOTE: These original pages of the Find Mickey Now website have been saved as links in the resources section for those who are missing a loved one and may need guidance in starting their own search effort.

The monetary donations are going to into a fund for expenses that arise for the family due to the search effort, as well as expenses that directly arise from the search effort in Lafayette and surrounding areas (like fuel and helicopter costs). The CFA account is used solely for the overtime of police officers, and additional search resources. Absolutely all money remaining in any of the donation accounts will be donated to non-profit organizations upon the conclusion of our search efforts. I’d once again like to thank everyone for all the support they’ve given and we hope to be able to give some back very soon! – Charlene Shunick

Where Your Donations Go

Your donation will go towards supplying the daily, ongoing search effort. We still need funds to provide for the following:

  • Fuel and supplies for ATV’s, boats, helicopters, and dog searches provided by individuals and non profit organizations that have graciously offered their time and resources.
  • The incurred overtime hours our police force has diligently worked via the Community Foundation of Acadiana.
  • Sustaining the long term investigation of our private investigator, who has emotionally invested his work with us for very little pay since day two.
  • Should we find Mickey soon, any funds we’ve raised that were not used for the search effort will be donated to nonprofit organizations such as Equusearch and the Community Foundation of Acadiana.

From the Bottom of our Hearts, Thank You.
