who is Sherri Papini?

Sherri Papini is a Northern California mother Sherri Papini, who was abducted in 2016 and found three weeks later on a roadside, battered and bruised.

Papini vanished while jogging near her house in Shasta County. Her husband, Keith Papini, reported her missing November 2 after she did not pick up their children from daycare.

Three weeks later, on Thanksgiving Day, she was found abandoned on Interstate 5 in Yolo County about 140 miles from the Mountain Gate jogging trail where she was last seen November.

The FBI has released sketches of two women suspected of abducting Papini. A reward of $10,000 is being offered for information leading to the identification of her suspected captors.

Papini described her captors as two women who spoke Spanish most of the time. She described one of the captors as having long curly hair, pierced ears, thin eyebrows and a thick accent.

The second captor was described as being older, with thick eyebrows and straight black hair with some gray.

The motive behind Papini's abduction is still unclear. Read more at BBC News and Los Angeles Times.
