She’s a beauty which is part of her problem. Joggers usually stick to a routine. If her phone is gone and she didn’t pick up her children, she’s gone. Maybe not dead, but some serious foul play. She doesn’t look 34. She looks much younger. Also I’m always stumped when I hear stories like this. You deviate from your regular schedule and STILL get abducted? Perhaps it was a lurker waiting for anyone and not particularly her.
I don’t suspect the husband. Yes I’m certain he has an alibi, but stuff happens.
As the search intensifies for Sherri Papini, a California mother of two who was reported missing after failing to return from an afternoon jog, her husband tells ABC News that he believes she was abducted.
“Everybody who knows my wife knows that there’s no reason for her to leave … She was definitely taken against her will,” Keith Papini told ABC News in a Sunday interview.
Sherri Papini, 34, of Shasta County was reported missing on Wednesday at about 6 p.m. after having gone jogging at approximately 2 p.m. According to a poster that was distributed in the search effort, Papini was last seen jogging alone on Sunrise Drive in Redding.
Described by her family as being a “super mom,” she failed to pick up her two young children from child care on Wednesday, sparking concern.
“I received a text message from her at 10:37 a.m. that day asking me if I was coming home for lunch,” Keith Papini said. “I usually don’t bring my personal phone in on my job. So I didn’t respond to that message until 1:39 p.m. that day.”
Papini added that he traced his wife’s cellphone using an app that tracks lost phones and found the device on the side of a road.
“Knowing that she didn’t pick up our kids — there is no way that ever happens,” Papini said. “She could drop her phone, but she would never in a million years not pick up our children on a time that she normally would have.”
Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko said on Saturday that the missing woman was “considered at risk due to the suspicious circumstances.”
She was last seen wearing a pink jogging top. Search teams have been scouring the area, and Papini’s family has offered a $50,000 reward to anyone who can provide information leading to her whereabouts.
“She has a family that loves her. Please just bring her home,” said her sister, Sheila Koester.
Sheriff’s officials said she does not have any known medical or mental health issues.
“The Sheriff’s Office is aware of the multiple theories about what may have happened with Sherri Papini,” Jackson said. “The Sheriff’s Office encourages the public to continue to be supportive to family as well as law enforcement efforts as these are stressful circumstances.”
Keith Papini told KRCR-TV that he thinks his wife was abducted.
“Bring her home,” he said. “Bring her home safe.”
Sherri Papini’s family is offering a $50,000 reward for her safe return.
Volunteers scoured the mountain community for days searching for Papini. Police dogs, a sheriff’s helicopters and deputies looked for clues into her disappearance.
Investigators contacted convicted sex offenders who lived in area and reviewed surveillance video cameras.
Surveillance cameras didn’t show anything?
What is in this jogging trail that would have cameras? It looks pretty remote.
If she ALWAYS picked up the children BEFORE she jogged, why would she veer from her usual routine? Also I’m just speculating here, but unless she had a family member who would babysit while she jogged, it’s not practical to pick up the kids first. Id never do that. Kids get in the way of your exercising, so she wouldn’t take them with her. I suppose it was a mistake by the media.
