Crime Stoppers ups reward for teacher

Crime Stoppers on Tuesday announced that it has increased its reward to $3,500 in the case of a Jefferson Parish schoolteacher missing for nearly three weeks.

Terrilynn Monette, 26, was last seen early March 2 leaving Parlay’s, a Lakeview bar. Neither she nor her car have been seen since.

Texas EquuSearch, a search and rescue group, has been searching City Park and several local waterways for clues about the West Bank elementary school teacher’s disappearance but has not had any success. New Orleans police have said the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office are assisting in the search.

Anyone with information about Monette’s whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (504) 822-1111 or (877) 903-7867. Callers can remain anonymous.
