The search for a missing Lafayette woman Mickey Shunick at several grave sites has ended, according to a Lafayatte television station KLFY.

St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz told KLFY that the investigation into the possible grave sites is over and nothing was found.

Earlier St. Landry Parish sheriff's deputies have brought cadaver dogs to a site about two miles from the home of a man booked with murder in connection with the disappearance of Shunick.

Sheriff Guidroz says a farmer called about three mounds of dirt near his fields.The search turned up empty at all three sites.

The field is near St. Ann's Catholic Church in the community of Swords near Opelousas.

It's about two miles from the Lawtell home of Brandon Lavergne, who has been booked with aggravated kidnapping and first-degree murder of Shunick. The University of Louisiana at Lafayette student has been missing since May 19.
