Lafayette, LA (KATC/CNN) - Friends of a missing Louisiana woman are utilizing social media to find the 22-year-old.

Mickey Shunick was last seen riding her bike on Saturday.

Now videos posted by friends are going viral.

Ashley Prado tirelessly scans Facebook, Twitter, BuzzFeed, Reddit, and any online site that has any post about her close friend Mickey.

"We're really just trying to keep a lot of positivity on the pages, trying to focus on where Mickey could be, where she was last seen, if any of her belongings were found," said Prado.

Mickey's story is spreading like wildfire, making it to CNN, Good Morning America, and Nancy Grace due in part to the social media campaigns and a video that gained over 8,000 views in a matter of hours.

"It's so wonderful to see that it's been picked up everywhere. It's amazing," said friend Josh Coen.

He said he made the videos as another way to reach the masses, and hopefully Mickey.

"'Join our army'" basically is what the video is saying, to show people that we're not giving up, and we're never going to give up until we find her," said Coen.

Until then, they post and share, trying to reach as many people as possible.

"She's one of us, you know. If it was any other one of us missing, I know that she'd be here," said Prado.
