REDDING, Cali. — Investigators in California now say a mother who vanished while out for a jog was abducted.

Sherri Papini, 34, was reported missing on Nov. 2 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."

The Shasta County Sheriff's Office said Thursday that Papini was "located out of area," and that she is currently in stable condition and receiving medical clearance at a hospital.

The sheriff's office added that she has been reunited with her husband, Keith Papini.
