TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. – The Tippecanoe County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a missing elementary school teacher.

Krista Perdue, 42, was reported missing Monday morning, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Krista's husband told deputies she had been sick all day Sunday, so they slept in separate bedrooms Sunday night. Her husband told police when he went to check on her Monday morning, she was gone.

Her husband said Krista's purse, wallet and driver’s license were left, and her car was sitting where he had parked it the night before. He also told officers he did not hear her leave, and did not know where she would have gone.

At this point, deputies say they do not suspect foul play.

Krista teaches second-grade at Woodland Elementary School in Lafayette.

Anyone with information regarding her location is asked to call the Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Office at 765-423-9321.
