Shasta Sheriff confirmed that Redding mother Sherri Papini found safe and is now recovering from non-life-threatening injuries in hospital.
United States — A California woman who went missing in the beginning of November has been found safe after being released by her captor or captors this morning, the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office announced today.
Sherri Papini, 34, was reported missing on Nov. 2, 2016, after she went for a run in the afternoon and never came home. Papini was last seen jogging alone on Sunrise Drive in Redding, California, according to a poster that was distributed in the search effort. The mother of two young children has been described by her family as a “super mom.”
“We are very ecstatic to report that Sherri Papini has been located and has been reunited with husband and family on this day of Thanksgiving,” Sheriff Tom Bosenko said at a news conference today. “I am happy to say that Sherri is now safe and that she has been treated at an area hospital outside of Shasta County for non-life-threatening injuries.”
The sheriff said that this is still an active investigation and that authorities are “looking for a dark-colored SUV with two Hispanic females armed with a handgun.”
