There’s not much to go on in this story of a California mother of two who has gone missing while jogging.
Often the husband will be of interest to the police. Sherri’s husband claims he was at work. Presumably the police have verified that. Additionally, no one is talking about trouble in the marriage. Police say they have no suspects.
Thus, we have a missing person story that may involve foul play by a stranger to the victim. Keep an eye out for Sheri, especially if you live in California. I’m sure that her family will appreciate any effort on our part to bring her back home to her husband and children.
Because of the many illegals pouring across the border into California, many of them young single males with little respect for the law, attractive white women in that embattled state are at special risk.
The family of a missing California woman believes she had been abducted while she was out jogging.
Family and friends told the Ventura County Star on Thursday that Sherri Papini, 34, of Redding, was a devoted mother of two who wouldn’t think about leaving her children.
“She was out for a run. She wouldn’t leave her babies,” Sheila Koester, Papini’s sister, told the paper.
Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko said Papini was last seen around 2 p.m. in her neighborhood running about 1 1/2 miles away from Interstate 5. Papini had sent a text message to her husband Keith asking him whether he’d be home for lunch, Koester said. He said he wouldn’t.
“He returned to the home later in the evening, around 5, and no one was here,” Koester said. “He called the authorities immediately.”
Her family said that jogging in the area is routine for Papini. She then picks up her two children from daycare in the afternoon and then spends the rest of the day gardening with them or doing other projects.
Keith Papini used the Find My iPhone app to track his wife’s phone to see whether it would lead him to her or a possible body. Papini found the phone at an intersection where she had been seen last, but no sign of his wife.
“I would say my personal reaction is that it’s twofold,” Suzanne Papini told the paper. “One, is that is it’s good to have some sort of clue. The other portion is that it really points to she’s been taken. I mean, she wouldn’t just drop her phone if she was running away. So, at least it’s giving us some kind of information, but it’s pretty — we’re sick. This is a pretty sickening situation.”
Authorities have said that there were no reports of any major incidents at the Papini household nor have any suspects been identified. Police said there were four registered sex offenders in the area, but didn’t say whether those men had been cleared.
Papini is described as being 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighs about 100 pounds. She was last seen wearing pink running clothes, deputies said.
Pray that Sheri is found alive and unharmed and that her kidnapper is captured or killed. With the illegals, gangs, and more than its share of weirdos, women in California should not leave home without a gun.
