New Orleans police are desperately searching for 26-year-old Terrilynn Monette. The second-grade teacher disappeared over a week ago after leaving a bar with friends.
"There’s total emptiness in my life right now," said her mother, Toni Enclade. "I miss my daughter so, so much."
Terrilynn's family, friends and sorority members have come from as far away as California to find her. Now, Texas Equusearch is lending its resources to the effort.
The group was started in 2000 after the abduction and murder of director Tim Miller's daughter. They've been involved in several high-profile cases, helping in the search for Natalee Holloway and, more recently, Caylee Anthony.
New Orleans police tell HLN that a car was found in the waters of Bayou St. John Wednesday afternoon by the group was not Monette's black Honda Accord.
They discovered the car using a small sonar device attached to a boat that swept the waterway. Police then sent divers down to examine the car, and confirmed that it did not belong to Monette.
Equusearch continued to search the Bayou on Thursday.
