A West Bank teacher recently nominated for teacher of the year has gone missing.
Friends and family say 26-year-old Terrilynn Monette went to Parlay's Bar on Harrison Avenue around 3:30 Saturday morning and hasn't been heard from since. Monette apparently told a group of friends at the bar that she was going to sleep in her car in the parking lot because she had been drinking.
A witness told NOPD detectives he saw Monette in the parking lot around 4:00 a.m. with an unknown man.
Her family is pleading with anyone for information about Monette's whereabouts.
Monette is originally from California. Her aunt says the woman has been in Louisiana for a year and a half, fulfilling her dream of being a teacher.
She was last seen wearing a pink and yellow sweater and blue jeans. Her car is a black 2012 two-door Honda Accord with license plate number WUN 494.
