(KMOV) -- The University of Missouri-St. Louis is looking for a missing employee.

Susan R. Allen left her office in the Millennium Student Center for lunch Wednesday, but has not returned to work since. She also has not returned to her home in Ballwin or contacted family members. It was her eigth day on the job.

Jeff Allen, Susan's husband, said his wife has no health problems and is not on any medication. Police said they searched the entire campus and are also checking Metrolink security camera video from the two UMSL stops, but haven't seen any sign of Allen so far.

A security camera recorded Allen removing $100 from an ATM in the student center at 12:20 that afternoon, but that's the last time she was seen. Allen's car keys were still in a small carry-all bag in her office along with an emergency cell phone. Her car had not been moved from the campus parking garage.

Allen is 55 years old and is 5 foot, 8 inches tall and about 185 pounds. She was last seen wearing a light colored top and dark slacks.
