    JEFFERSON PARISH, LA (CBS/WWL) -- The search continues for a second grade Louisiana teacher who has been missing since Saturday.

    Volunteers are posting flyers and signs in hope that someone will step forward with information about 26-year-old Terrilynn Monette.

    As the hours tick by, and concerns grow over Terrilynn Monette's whereabouts, those who know her are teaming with some who don't to push the search forward. Woodland West Elementary principal Amy Hoyle says, "We want to get her beautiful face seen by everyone, so that one person who might know something, sees her, can call the authorities and bring her home to us."

    Tonight, Hoyle met up with Lakeview residents to post signs around the area. Local resident Colleen Moore says, "Well I heard signs are being given out to put in your yard and I didn't want people to forget about this teacher. I wanted people to keep on looking for her, because I know the family still has hope for her."

    Terrilynn Monette has been missing since early Saturday morning when she was last seen in this parking lot near Parlay's bar in Lakeview.

    For Terrilynn's family, friends and colleagues, not knowing is proving difficult. And in the time since this case went public, New Orleans Police have been very tight-lipped about their investigation.

    Still, tonight, those helping in the search, say they're choosing to stay positive. Hoyle says, "We've received so many thoughts and prayerful ideas have been sent our way, and we're just really grateful for all of the support. Our students need it, our teachers need it, Terrilynn needs it, Terrilyn's family needs it. We are as hopeful and as prayerful as we possibly can be for her safe return right now, we can't wait to have her home."

    Police are also still looking for Terrilynn Monette's 2012 black Honda Accord with the Louisiana license plate WUN 494. If you have any information, call Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
