The search for a Shasta County woman who suddenly disappeared nearly a week ago has mobilized law enforcement from multiple agencies, though efforts so far have yielded few leads.
Sherri Papini was last seen just before heading out on a Nov. 2 afternoon jog in the small town of Mountain Gate in Shasta County, sheriff’s officials said.
Papini's husband Keith told sheriff's deputies the 34-year-old mother of two didn’t show up to pick up their kids from daycare. Using an app on his cell phone, Keith was able to locate Papini's cell phone on the ground near the intersection of Sunrise Drive and Old Oregon Trail; however, there was no sign of his wife, deputies said.
Shasta County sheriff’s deputies began searching for Papini the next day on Nov. 3.
While family members believe Papini to have been abducted, sheriff’s officials are still exploring myriad theories and have not ruled out the possibility she has in fact been kidnapped.
Multiple eyewitness accounts placed Papini in the area where her cell was found the day she reportedly went missing. Witnesses described seeing Papini wearing a pink jogging top while she was on a jog.
Sheriff’s officials are asking anyone with information on Papini’s whereabouts to call dispatch at 530-245-6540, or at the major crimes unit 530-245-6135. Tips can also be submitted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
