Westra's brother, Eric Rohrbach, told ABC News that his sister is the “last person that would do something like this."

"This is very abnormal," he said.

He told the outlet that she was stressed at work and was having trouble sleeping, while Eric Westra said she had gotten up at about 3 a.m. Monday because she couldn’t fall asleep.

Police described Westra as 5'10,” 140 lbs with brown hair and brown eyes. It’s unclear if she has a vehicle or why she disappeared.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to contact the Cumberland County Regional Communications Center at 207-893-2810.
