New Orleans police released a detailed list of events on the night Terrilyn Monette went missing.

They say a jogger passed through the intersection of Marconi Drive and Harrison Avenue about five to ten minutes after Monette drove her car through the same intersection.

Police say her night started in the Marigny and was followed by dinner at a restaurant on Veterans Boulevard in Metairie.

Officers say Monette and her male friend then met three other people at Parlay’s in Lakeview around midnight.

They say this is what they know about the rest of her night.

At 12:58 a.m. her cell phone died.

At 3:30 a.m. she went to her car with one of her friends.

At 4:15 a.m. the man left.

He also told police Monette passed out in her car.

At 5:13 a.m. Monette’s car left Parlay’s.

The N.O.P.D. says she was last recorded on a traffic camera driving alone at Marconi Drive and Harrison Avenue just before the jogger passed the intersection.

“If anyone knows who that jogger was, or if you were jogging in City Park that morning, please come forward.  Maybe that person saw something that can help the investigation”, said Lt. Christopher Kalka.

Officers say Monette was not cut off at the bar.

They say according to witnesses she did not consume an excessive amount of drinks.

They’ve also received 94 Crimestoppers tips.

    How does he know she passed out in the car? And why would he leave her there. Sounds fishy to me. Right how could they tell she was the driver. I am sure the police know the answers to these questions. Please anyone knows the jogger or seen anything speak up. Her family needs your help. Prayers she is found safe

    God be with this young lady's family. Please allow them to have their daughter returned to them safely, whom ever is holding her captive allow her to be freed . Why would any person that is considered a friend leave this young lady passed out in her car? And how do they know the person that was said to be in her car with her in the bank parking lot ever got out of the car? And was not hiding in the back? With friends like those people that were with Terilynn who needs them? Friends look out for each other. Praying God will prevail and reveal the mystery's of this case to the police and family. In Jesus name
