sherri-papiniREDDING, CA – A 34-year-old mother-of-two went missing during an afternoon jog last Wednesday and her family fear she was abducted.

When Keith Papini returned home from work on Wednesday he found that his wife, Sherri, and their two children were not home.

When she would not answer her cell phone and he learned their children had not been picked up from daycare, Keith used the Find My Iphone app to locate Sherri’s phone near the intersection of Old Oregon Trail and Sunrise Drive in Redding.

When he drove to the location he did not find his wife, but did find her phone with the ear-buds still plugged into the device.

“He found her phone close to the road,” said Sherri’s sister Shelia. “He called the authorities immediately.”

Investigators say that at this time they do not have any evidence pointing to an abduction, but aren’t ruling it out saying it’s still early in the investigation.

However, friends and family cannot think of any other scenario, describing Sherri as a dedicated mother who would have never left her children at daycare or intentionally disrupted their lives.

Around 20 searchers immediately began looking around the area where Sherri’s phone was found, with almost 100 people – including K-9 units and helicopters – searching for her by Friday.

Secret Witness of Shasta County, Inc, is offering $50,000 for anyone who has information that leads to the arrest and/or conviction of a suspect behind the disappearance of Papini.

Sherri weighs 100 lbs. and is 5’4″, last seen wearing a pink running outfit. If you have any information regarding her whereabouts, call the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office at 530-245-6540 or Major Crimes Unit at 530-245-6135.
