Her husband used geo-location services to track down her car and phone in New Orleans
The family of a sixth grade teacher are still looking for her after she vanished Thursday afternoon.
Police in Alvin, Texas are investigating the disappearance of Fairview Junior High teacher Michelle Reynolds, 48, who went missing last week.
Her husband, Michael Reynolds, said that while his wife's disappearance is still a mystery he was able to track down her vehicle.
Using the GPS device in her dark gray Lexus RX 300, per local KHOU 11, he tracked down her car to New Orleans on Saturday. Traveling the hundreds of miles with Michelle's brother he said he found items belonging to his wife still inside the vehicle.
"We were able to unlock the car and found that her personal items were still in the vehicle but she was not in the vehicle," Mr. Reynolds said. "Her phone has not been used. Her phone was in the car. Her phone did have charge but it was turned off."
