The sister of the California woman who went missing in the beginning of November and then was found safe on Thursday read a statement on behalf of the family tonight.
Sherri Papini, 34, flagged down a vehicle on a motorway almost 150 miles from her home on Thursday morning, officials said.
Koester and Sherri's sister-in-law, Suzanne Papini, both defined the missing woman as a "supermom" who would not unsettle the routine of her children, KRCR reported soon after the disappearance.
"She could drop her phone, but she would never in a million years not pick up our children at the time that she normally would have", Keith Papini told "Good Morning America" before his wife was found.
He said that Papini was injured during her abduction, but did not provide details on the extent of her injuries.
"That's when I knew she had been taken or abducted, in my opinion", he told the station.
An iPhone, a pair of earbuds and some locks of what was assumed to be her hair were the only leads into her potential whereabouts in days following Papini's disappearance on November 2. "She has been reunited with her husband, Keith".
Assistant District Attorney for Shasta County Stephanie Bridgett said the department could not name all the charges the suspects would face if located, but Bridgett said they would be put on trial in Shasta. "Then in the days following this, we will be following up with her".
Papini was bound when was released near Interstate 5 in Yolo County and was able to somehow flag down a passing motorist, Bosenko said. Her cellphone and headphones were found near the site where she was last seen.
"We're just so happy and relieved that she seems to be okay", Jessica Morris said. Her husband told the station that he called their day care center and learned the children hadn't been picked up.
"It shows what a community can do when it works together to get the word out", he said.
Phone numbers for Papini and some of her family rang through Friday, and the Shasta County sheriff's office did not immediately respond to calls, messages and emails seeking comment.
Authorities in Shasta and Yolo counties are involved in the investigation.
