Mountain Gate, Calif. (KRCR) — Keith Papini came home last Wednesday and his wife Sherri Papini was nowhere to be found. He said, “And on normal days I would open the door and my family comes, runs and give me a hug.” But there were not welcoming hugs.
So he searched in the house, their property, but learned the children were still at daycare. He found Sherri’s phone down the street. “That’s when I knew she had been take or abducted, in my opinion.”
Time–going by slowly. And their children don’t know their mother is missing. Keith said, “It’s hard waiting, you know? You are waiting for a phone call, your waiting for something to tell us this is the directions, or this is the house, or this is the car and that is very difficult right now.” But Keith is determined to find her. “If she is listening, I want to say we are trying, we are trying the best we can and I am sorry I’m not there.”
The family believes she was abducted, and has this message: “Bring her home, bring her home. Just bring her home. Bring her home safe–there is a $50,000 reward. Just bring her home.”
Keith Papini said he is extremely grateful for the outpouring of support he is getting from the community.
