COVINGTON, LA (WVUE) - The search for a missing Alabama woman last seen in St. Tammany Parish reaches its fourth day.   

26 year-old Melinda Denny of Mobile hasn't been seen since early Saturday morning. 
     
The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office says they are focusing their search today on Brewster Road and Highway 21 between Madisonville and Covington.  

Sheriff's deputies say they encountered Denny and her boyfriend Saturday around 2am in a grocery store parking lot on Highway 21.
     
10 hours later, they found Denny's boyfriend Jonathan Nall threatening to kill himself outside a gas station along I-12 near Madisonville. 
     
Authorities say Nall has been transferred from a hospital to the St. Tammany Parish jail. He's booked with terrorizing and resisting arrest.
   
If you know where detectives can find Melinda Denny, call police.
