PORTAGE, Mich. (WNEM) -

Authorities have named a school teacher’s husband as a person of interest in her disappearance.

Theresa Lockhart vanished from her home in Portage on May 18. It was the school district that contacted police two days later, when she failed to show up for work.

Lockhart's car was found at a Park and Ride in Portage, a few miles from her home.

Police have named Lockhart’s husband as a person of interest after he refused to cooperate with the investigation. Officials said the husband reached out to a lawyer and refused to consent to a search of his home, leaving police without critical investigative tools.

Lockhart disappeared six months after her husband was accused of assaulting her, police said.

Authorities are now investigating her disappearance as a homicide.
