BROOKVILLE, Pa. -- It's been more  than four days since a Centre County woman went missing after jumping out of her family's moving vehicle on a busy interstate, and now her parents are pleading to her to return safely.

Thirty-seven-year-old Susan Bachman jumped from her parent's moving vehicle on Interstate 80 in the Brookville area of Jefferson County on July 4, and she hasn't been seen since. Her parents were taking her to a hospital for psychiatric treatment in Clarion County.

With days of searching and help from local first responders, friends and family, Bachman's parents are taking a different approach and are hoping anyone who sees her will come forward.

The Bachman family has printed several flyers that they are posting throughout the area and are hoping that other people will also post them.

"Your daddy and I miss you around here doing stuff, and are extremely worried that you may be out there suffering, hurt, cold, scared," Nancy Bachman said Tuesday.

Susan is 5 feet 5 inches tall with green eyes and has red hair. She was last wearing a blue flannel shirt and jeans.

Her parents said despite her emotional issues, which they say caused her to jump from their car, that Susan is a smart woman and may have sought the help of another motorist.

Her parents said she is truly missed by her family and her dog.

"Things are not right around here without you," Nancy said. "Your dog misses you and whines by the door off and on, lying by the door. She doesn't know why you don't come to her."

State police said they've received dozens of calls about Susan's possible whereabouts.

The family has now contacted a number of gas companies, like Shell and Exxon, in hopes of having posters in gas stations across the state. They've reached out to a non-profit organization to help them do that and are hoping to hear from them.

"There's no problem that we cannot solve together when we have faith in God," Nancy said.

Anyone seeing Susan is asked to contact troopers at the DuBois barracks at 814-371-4652.
