The search for Mickey Shunick is in its 18th day..
However there are no new developments.
Somehow friends and family of the missing UL student continue to stay positive and say what keeps them going is the outpouring of support from the community like these butterflies.
People of all ages are coming to volunteer headquarters at Blackham Coliseum here in Lafayette to paint them for Mickey.
Mickey's big sister says Mickey loves bright colors and that these butterflies will be waiting for her when she comes home.
