New Orleans, La. - Crimestoppers has raised the reward in the missing teacher case to $20,000.
Wednesday morning, state Wildlife and Fisheries agents join the search effort for Terrilynn Monette.
Three teams of seven field agents are searching City Park on four-wheelers.
They're also searching remote areas of New Orleans East including along Highway 11 and Chef Menteur Highway for the 26-year-old last seen March 2nd at a bar in Lakeview.
State Representative Austin Badon requested that the agency get involved.
Wildlife and Fisheries believes it can provide more assets than the volunteer search crew out of Texas that was in New Orleans recently.
"Our equipment ranges from fixed wing aircraft to four wheelers, to every type of vessel you could think of, so we have the assets to apply to it," said Capt. Stephen McManus.
"The Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries has some unique experts. They do this every day. We have a diver who has reached out and will be assisting in the search. The department has pulled agents from two different sectors, so we've kind of put the Wildlife and Fisheries aspect on the side for right now," said Badon.
Badon says he's talked to Monette's mother and she's thankful for the new resources.
If you've seen Monette or her 2012 black Honda Accord, call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
