New Orleans, La. - Volunteers with Texas Equusearch spent another day Thursday looking for a missing Jefferson Parish teacher.

Their search centered around an area of New Orleans' Bayou St. John, between Terrilynn Monette's home and Parlay's Bar in Lakeview.  She was last seen leaving the bar early in the morning of March 2.

Texas Equusearch found several cars submerged in the bayou, but New Orleans police say none of the vehicles matched the description of Monette's black Honda Accord.  Several cars appeared to have been underwater for years, so police did not send divers down Thursday.

Monette's mother, her friends and coworkers met Thursday evening outside Parlay's.  Toni Enclade says the days are getting longer with no sign of her missing daughter.

"I truly was hoping by Monday I would have been seeing my baby and now it's about to be two weeks and I don't know no more now than I did when I first got out here," says Enclade.

Texas Equusearch plans to continue searching Bayou St. John Friday.
