Officials in Pennsylvania are searching for a mom who disappeared nearly a week ago.

Jennifer Brown, 43, of Limerick Township, has been missing since last Tuesday, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office said in a news release on Friday.

Brown was expected to pick up her son from his bus stop on Wednesday, but never showed, according to the release.

"Law enforcement is very concerned about the welfare of this mother, Jennifer Brown," District Attorney Kevin R. Steele said.

Brown was last seen "by a friend and business associate" at about 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Steele's office said.

Her car was later found parked outside her home on Stratford Court, according to Friday's release. Several other items — including her keys, wallet, purse and work cellphone — were located inside her home.

Officials said Brown's personal cellphone, which remains missing, has not been used since Wednesday.

The missing woman's family is offering a $10,000 reward to anyone with information that helped locate their loved one.

"It's literally like we're living in a movie that we watch on TV, it's so surreal and unbelievable," family spokesperson and friend Tiffany Barron told ABC affiliate WPVI. "Jennifer would never ever just disappear, she would never abandon her son."
