Ab­ducted Cal­i­for­nia wo­man found af­ter three weeks

Malta Independent - - WORLD -

A miss­ing Cal­i­for­nia mother of two has been found three weeks af­ter she was ab­ducted while out jog­ging. Sherri Pap­ini was still bound with re­straints when she man­aged to flag down a car on Thurs­day some 140 miles from where she was last seen. Po­lice, who say she was re­leased by her cap­tors, are look­ing for two women in con­nec­tion with her dis­ap­pear­ance. Ms Pap­ini’s hus­band had re­ported her miss­ing af­ter she failed to pick up their chil­dren from day care. The mo­tive be­hind her ab­duc­tion in Red­ding, north­ern Cal­i­for­nia, on 2 Novem­ber, is still un­clear. County Sher­iff Tom Bosenko told re­porters Ms Pap­ini was re­ceiv­ing med­i­cal at­ten­tion for non­life threat­en­ing in­juries at a nearby hos­pi­tal. “We are very thank­ful on this day [Thanks­giv­ing] that she was found safe and re­united with her fam­ily.’’ A $50,000 re­ward is be­ing of­fered to find those re­spon­si­ble for Ms Pap­ini’s cap­ture. In­ves­ti­ga­tors had in­ter­viewed hun­dreds of lo­cal res­i­dents re­gard­ing her dis­ap­pear­ance and re­ceived some 400 tips.
