BATONROUGE -- State Rep. Austin Badon is asking for help from state officials to find the Jefferson Parish school teacher who has been missing since March 2.

Badon requested that the state Department of Wildlife and Fisheries aid in the search for Terrilynn Monette.Badon says beginning Wednesday, Wildlife & Fisheries agents will begin a two-prong search for Monnette.

Agents will re-search the lagoons in City Park and Bayou St. John, and they will also search he 17th St. Canal, according to Badon.

Monette was last seen in the early morning hours of Saturday, March 2, leaving Parlay's Dream Lounge in Lakeview. A traffic camera captured her turning left onto Marconi Drive from Harrison Avenue in her black Honda Accord, but that is the last location officials have been able to track the missing woman.

Officials, family members and friends have combed the dense areas of City Park, and EquuSearch, a Texas-based group, searched some waterways -- Bayou St. John and the lagoons of City Park -- around the area.
