LAFAYETTE - Investigators searching for a missing college student in Lafayette say the number of tips they're receiving are slowing down enough that they're going to make some changes.
Starting tonight, the tip line at the Lafayette Police Department won't be staffed at all hours by investigators. Instead, an answering machine will record tips after normal business hours.
"The number of tips received by the Lafayette Police Department has decreased and it is no longer feasible to answer the tips line 24 hours a day," said Cpl. Paul Mouton.
Detectives will still answer the tip line during normal business hours, and check messages left on the machine.
Shunick disappeared May 19 and was last seen riding away from a friend's house on a bicycle. The bike was later found dumped in Whiskey Bay near I-10, and sent to the State Crime Lab for analysis. Police are asking for information about a white, four-door Z71 pickup seen in the same area Shunick rode through.
Anyone with information about Shunick's disappearance can call (337) 291-8633. A $25,000 reward has been offered for information that leads to her being found.
