Police continue search for missing UNO student

Updated:

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - New Orleans police and investigators with the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office continue to search for a University of New Orleans student missing since Saturday morning.

New Orleans police spokesman Officer Garry Flot issued the following update Tuesday:

"Since Ms. Howard was reported missing, the NOPD and St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office assembled a search and rescue team. They disseminated a boat unit, helicopter and ground units in New Orleans and St. Tammany Parish. This is because Ms. Howard was last known to be driving from UNO campus to her residence in Slidell. Detectives have obtained some video surveillance from cameras along that possible route to Slidell in an effort to spot Ms. Howard's car and try to get a better idea of the direction she was headed in.  

Investigators have also conducted several interviews, including with the last person who was with Ms. Howard before she was reported missing.  

NOPD detectives have also checked area hospitals to see if Ms. Howard had possibly been admitted for some reason. She had not. The investigation continues and we ask anyone who may have seen Ms. Howard or her vehicle to call 9-1-1 or CrimeStoppers at 504-822-1111."
