NEW ORLEANS – There are signs up and down Harrison Avenue to keep Terrilyn Monnette in the minds of people in the Lakeview area.
Her mother arrived in town Tuesday night from California and said she has been working with police to find any clue that could lead to finding her daughter.
NOPD Superintendent Ronal Serpas spoke about the search for the first time Wednesday, saying police are conducting interviews.
“We have talked to a lot of people,” he said. “It’s not appropriate to say who they were or what they were in relationship to her.”
Family members said both they and the police have talked to the college friend Monnette was with the night she went missing. What those conversations uncovered is still unclear.
Monnette doesn’t live far from Parlay’s. If she had been headed home Saturday, she could’ve passed several bodies of water, including Bayou St. John.
Serpas was asked if police are considering a search of the water areas.
“I think there is no question that we’ve looked at every possible angle that we can think of,” he said. “We continue to rely on people’s good will to call us and tell us if they know something.”
Call 821-2222 if you've seen Monette or have any information that could help lead officials to her.
