REDDING, California- A $50,000 reward is being offered to help find a missing mother of two from Redding, California.

The young mother vanished without a trace last week. Sherri Papini’s husband told KRCR-TV in California, he came home from work last Wednesday and she was nowhere to be found.

“I’m coming honey. I am trying, I’m doing everything I can and I love you,” said Keith Papini.

Keith Papini said he searched the house, their property and learned their two young children were still at daycare.

During his search, he found Sherri’s cell phone down the street.

“That’s when I knew she had been take or abducted, in my opinion,” said Keith Papini.

Nearly one week later, police, family, friends and the community are scouring the area for her.

Keith told KRCR-TV, their children don’t know their mother is missing.

He said, “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.”
