Sheriff Tom Bosenko: No sightings of Papini in surveillance footage


REDDING, Calif. - After combing through surveillance video, the Shasta County Sheriff's office says there has been no sign of missing Shasta County mom, Sherri Papini since she vanished on Wednesday, November 2, 2016 while out for a run in the Mountain Gate area.

According to Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko, law enforcement has been going through surveillance footage from homes and businesses in the area where Papini disappeared. Detectives with the Major Crimes Unit are helping to sort through the approximately 150 tips that have come in, according to a news release sent after 5 p.m. Monday.

The Sheriff's Office is using resources from the Redding Police Department, as well as from the Department of Justice and continues to keep close contact with the Papini family.

Papini's disappearance has gone global. Sheriff Tom Bosenko was interviewed about the case on CNN's Headline News Monday night and Papini's story has been featured on Good Morning America, World News Tonight, and in The Guardian.

Sherri was reported missing after her husband came home to an empty house. Keith Papini was used to having his two young kids and wife greet him at the door after work, so he was concerned when there was no one home that night. Keith later found his two kids were still at daycare. He used Apple's "Find My iPhone" app to locate Sherri's phone, discarded on the ground along the route she normally went running in the afternoon. Sheriff Bosenko said strands of Papini's long blonde hair, and her phone earbuds were also found. Her driver license, credit cards and cash were all left at home.

Search teams combed the area all weekend, but turned up nothing to help them find the missing woman.

Sherri is white, with blonde hair and blue eyes. She weighs 100 lbs. and is 5'4". She was last seen wearing a pink and black running outfit. If anyone has information on Sherri Papini's whereabouts they can call dispatch 24 hours a day at 530-245-6540, or the Major Crimes Unit at 530-245-6135. Tips can also be submitted to
