Sher­iff: Mom held cap­tive for weeks emo­tional af­ter re­lease

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - NATION+WORLD -

A woman who was kid­napped af­ter leav­ing her North­ern Cal­i­for­nia home to jog and held cap­tive for three weeks was “very emo­tional” af­ter a pass­ing driver found her on the side of a ru­ral road, a lo­cal sher­iff said Fri­day.

Au­thor­i­ties were look­ing for two armed women they be­lieve ab­ducted Sherri Pap­ini, 34, on Nov. 2, Shasta County Sher­iff Tom Bosenko said in an in­ter­view on “Good Morn­ing Amer­ica.” He called it very rare for her to be re­leased about 150 miles south of where she dis­ap­peared near Red­ding.

Pap­ini was found Thanks­giv­ing morn­ing bound by re­straints near In­ter­state 5, but she was able to flag down a driver, Bosenko said. The mo­torist called au­thor­i­ties, who con­nected the mother of two to her hus­band by cell­phone.

“She was very emo­tional to be re­leased and hear her hus­band’s voice, and then a few hours later to be re­united with him,” the sher­iff said.
