MOUNTAIN GATE, Calif. (CNN) — It’s been nearly a week since a California mother went missing and no one has seen or heard from her since.
Her husband believes she was abducted. Now, he just wants her back home.
“I’m coming honey. I am trying, I’m doing everything I can and I love you,” said husband Keith Papini.
Keith Papini came home last Wednesday and his wife Sherri Papini was nowhere to be found.
“And on normal days, I would open the door and my family comes, runs and gives me a hug,” said Keith Papini.
Last Wednesday, there were no welcoming hugs.
He searched in the house and 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 taken or abducted, in my opinion,” said Keith Papini.
Now days later, family, friends, the community and law enforcement are still looking for Sherri.
“It’s the worst thing in the world; it’s the worst thing ever,” said Keith Papini.
Time is going by slowly and their children don’t know their mother is missing.
“It’s hard waiting, you know, you are waiting for a phone call, you’re 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,” said Keith Papini.
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,” said Keith Papini.
The family believes she was abducted and has this message: “Bring her home, bring her home, and just bring her home. Bring her home safe. There is a $50,000 reward, just bring her home,” said Keith Papini.
Keith Papini says he is extremely grateful for the outpouring of support he is getting from the community.
