NEW ORLEANS, LA (WWL-TV) - WWL-TV reports a Texas-based search group has decided to halt its efforts to help find a missing teacher.

Equusearch reportedly suspended its search for Terrilynn Monette, a Jefferson Parish teacher who disappeared on March 2, after finding no clues.

The group added it would return from Houston if more clues surfaced and warranted more searching.

Meanwhile, Crime Stoppers has increased its reward for information on the missing 26-year-old woman. The reward is now up to $3,500.

Investigators said Monette was last seen alive around 5:15 a.m. on March 2. They said video from security and red light cameras show her driving out of a parking lot behind a Lakeview bar.

However, police said they do not think she ever made it home.
