NEW ORLEANS, LA (NBC33) — Search crews will scour an area of New Orleans east today that is a known dumping ground for stolen vehicles. Investigators hope to recover clues in the case of missing school teacher, Terilynn Monette.
The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has been called in to use its sonar equipment to search a wooded area. Investigators hope they will locate Monette’s vehicle, which they believe is the key to knowing what happened to her.
Monette was last seen on Saturday, March 2 at a bar in New Orleans. The elementary school teacher went out for a night on the town with friend, and was last seen leaving in her vehicle at roughly 5:15 a.m.
Investigators have not identified a person of interest or possible suspects in this case.
Crime Stoppers is now offering a $19,600 reward for information that leads to the location of Monette. Call (504) 822-1111 if you have any information.
