NEW ORLEANS, LA (WAFB) -

The search continues to intensify for a missing teacher, nearly two weeks after she disappeared.

The family of Terrilynn Monette, 26, is desperate to find her. She is a teacher in Jefferson Parish.

She was last seen with friends at Parlay's Bar on March 2nd celebrating her nomination for teacher of the year. Police say she went to take a nap in her car before going home. Her mother believes someone may now be holding her captive.

"I just want them to know to please bring my baby back home to me, please," said Toni Enclade. "It's very hard. It's very hard. Can you … I can't sleep at night. I can't sleep at night. I can't eat. I keep thinking about my child and where she could be. I just want her back. So please, if you are watching this, please bring Terrilynn home. Please, that's all I want. I want her home."

Hundreds of volunteers and police continue to scour the New Orleans area looking for Monette, but so far, they have found no clues.

Authorities said she was seen talking to an unidentified man in the parking lot of the bar the night she disappeared, but that man has been interviewed and is not considered a suspect.
