26 Year Old Elementary School Teacher Terrilynn Monnette Missing Since March 2, 2013 in the Lakeview section of New Orleans
26 year old Terrilynn Monnette has been missing since the early hours of Saturday morning, March 2, 2013. The 26 year old elementary school teacher was last seen with friends on Friday night at a bar, Parlay’s, in the Lakeview section of New Orleans. Employees say she’d just finished a night of heavy drinking with several friends. Then she and a male acquaintance walked out and sat inside her car. According to reports, Monnette left the bar around 4 o’clock Saturday morning with a male acquaintance. The two talked for a while than the bar’s video surveillance showed they left in separate cars and headed off in opposite directions. Terrilynn Monnette has not been seen or heard from since.
New Orleans police and family members are frantically searching for an elementary school teacher who has been missing since last Saturday.
Twenty-six-year-old Terrilynn Monnette was last seen with friends at a bar in the Lakeview section of the Crescent City last Friday evening. She left the bar around 4 o’clock Saturday morning with a male acquaintance, reported ABC’s New Orleans affiliate WGNO, telling her friends that she was going to take a nap in her car before driving home because she’d had a few drinks.
The bar’s general manager told WGNO that the two talked in the parking lot “for a little while,” but the bar’s video surveillance showed they left in separate cars. “He went one way, she went the other,” the bar manager said.
An eyewitness has told police that he saw the missing teacher with an unidentified man in the bar’s parking lot, according to information on the missing person’s flyer that Monnette’s family has been distributing.
Police detectives are searching for Monnette’s car — a three-door black Louisiana-registered Honda Accord with license plate number WUN494, according to the missing person’s flyer.

UPDATE I: Volunteers search for missing N.O. teacher.
On Thursday morning, she and 50 to 60 other volunteers slowly walked through City Park banging sticks in bushes and searching through shrubs, hoping to find some sign of Monette, who has been missing since Saturday. The sheer size of City Park made finding that much-needed clue unlikely, but Enclade was adamant that she still believes that her daughter will return to her safely.
“I really believe that she’s OK,” Enclade said with a firm nod of her head, as others searched the high grass near the City Park driving range behind her. “I’m very hopeful.”
A foot search is under way for the missing schoolteacher who was last seen outside of a Lakeview bar early Saturday morning. Friends, family and co-workers of 26-year-old Terrilynn Monette gathered at Parlay’s bar in the 800 block of Harrison Avenue at 7:30 a.m. Thursday (March 7) to help look for the missing California native.
The group, which at 9 a.m. consisted of several dozen people, including concerned citizens who had never met Monette, gathered in the parking lot across the street from the bar and mapped out a search grid on an easel.
