Calif. – According to the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office, Sherri Papini was reported missing by her husband on Wednesday, November 2nd.

Keith Pepini told deputies he came home from work and was not able to locate his wife and their two children. He found out the children were not picked up from their daycare as usual. He used an iPhone app to track and find Sherri’s phone near the intersection of Old Oregon Trail and Sunrise Drive north of Redding, California. She wasn’t at the location, so he called 911.

Deputies said the children were later picked up from daycare and are safe.

SCSO said Sherri normally jogs in the area where her phone was found. She was last seen on jogging or walking alone wearing a pink running jacked on Sunrise Drive around 2:00 p.m.
