New Orleans Teacher Still Missing
New Orleans second-grade teacher Terrilynn Monette, who disappeared March 2 after a night out celebrating her Teacher of the Year nomination, is still missing nearly two weeks later, the Huffington Post reports. She was last seen talking to a man -- who has since been ruled out as a suspect -- outside her car at 4 a.m. Hundreds of volunteers searched for her in the nearby New Orleans City Park, but to no avail.
