Missing Louisiana teacher's car pulled from in bayou; decomposed body discovered inside

Authorities have pulled a missing teacher's car from a New Orleans bayou and police say there is a decomposed body inside.

Terrilyn Monette, a Long Beach, Calif., native who moved Louisiana to teach, vanished three months ago. Authorities did not immediately say whether the body in the car was Monette.

Monette's black Honda Accord was pulled from New Orleans' Bayou St. John on Saturday.

Louisiana state Rep. Austin Badon has spearheaded the search for Monette. He says he and a volunteer diver resurveyed the waterway in a boat using sonar and found a car that had earlier been missed.

The 26-year-old teacher was last seen leaving a New Orleans bar not far from the bayou in the early morning hours of March 2.
