Investigators give update in missing teacher case


New Orleans, La. - Dozens of people came together Friday evening outside of the Lakeview bar where Terrilynn Monette disappeared a week ago.  The 26-year-old teacher went missing last Saturday morning after she left Parlay's Bar on Harrison Avenue.

Investigators say they've identified and interviewed the last person to be seen with Monette that night.  They also say her cell phone stopped functioning four hours before she disappeared.

Family, friends and even complete strangers have joined the search for the second grade teacher at Harvey's Woodland West Elementary.  Several people who knew her from the school spoke about her dedication to the children.

"Terrilynn was just an outstanding teacher. She had brought her students that were at the lowest level since October to the top of the class. They were at the top of the school," says Interim Superintendent James Meza.

"All I can say is, please bring my baby home. Bring my baby home. That's all I'm asking," says her mother, Toni Enclade.

Monette's car is also missing.  It's a black Honda Accord with license plate number WUN 494.

The NOPD will be searching City Park again this Saturday for clues to the teacher's disappearance. Family, friends and volunteers are encouraged to come out. They're meeting at 10:00 a.m. at the intersection of Filmore and Wisner.

If you know anything about this case, please call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
