According to FOX26 News, Reynolds is a teacher at Fairview Junior High for Alvin ISD, about 25 miles south of Houston. Her husband, Michael, reported her missing and was able to track her car using the vehicle's geo-tracking. They found the car in New Orleans and went that way with her brother.

They were able to locate the car and her personal items inside.

Surveillance Video

Surveillance video from a storefront shows Reynolds getting out of the car and walking off. Tim Miller with Texas EquuSearch says:

"We did get surveillance of her actually parking her car on Saint Peters Street at 12:01 p.m. Friday afternoon and then kind of what direction she was walking. Saint Peters Street is pretty close to the Mississippi River."

Miller says they brought in a helicopter to help search the Mississippi River saying they've had success using the helicopter when searching for missing people.

"We’re flying probably about 20 miles down the river, low flying. We’ve had a lot of success recovering victims with the helicopter," says Miller.

Reynolds husband is hoping additional surveillance video will help locate her.

Reynolds is 5-feet, 10-inches tall, thin build and believed to have been last seen wearing black leggings.

The Brazoria County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information to call  979-864-2392 and reference case No. 2209-0540.
