It's been four days now since the family of a Pueblo mother has heard from her.
Police say she disappeared after dropping her daughter off at school last Thursday.
We have learned new information today about 57-year-old Susan Halsey.
Pueblo police now have search and rescue dogs involved in the case and they are considering this a suspicious disappearance.
The search for Susan Halsey continued early this morning with cadaver dogs out searching the area where her car was found.
Halsey's car was located at a Walgreens drug store located at the corner of Bonforte street on the Northside of town.
News First 5 asked Sgt. Eric Bravo with the Pueblo Police Department what prompted them to bring in the cadaver dogs to search the area and this is what he had to say.
"The location of her car that would be the most logical place if someone had done something to her."
He tells us they are following leads in the case including that of locating another person of interest.
Cadaver dogs will resume their search and rescue possibly this evening or Tuesday morning.
The last time a family member had heard from Halsey was last Thursday around 8:30 a.m.
Sgt. Bravo tells us that she had a dental appointment that day but never made it.
We also spoke with one of her colleagues at the Pueblo Community Health Center and we're told she was not scheduled for work that day, but that she was a very reliable and dependable employee.
While police continue searching for Susan Halsey they ask if anyone has any information about her whereabouts to call them at 542-STOP.
She is described as a white female about 5 foot three, weighs 140 pounds with grey hair and brown eyes.
