MOUNTAIN GATE (AP) — Police and dozens of volunteers fanned out over the weekend in search of a missing Northern California mother whose family believes she’s been abducted.

Police say 34-year-old Sherri Papini has been missing since she went for a jog Wednesday afternoon in the tiny town of Mountain Gate in Shasta County.

The Redding Record Searchlight reports the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office is dedicating nearly all its investigators to the case as well as some Redding police detectives.

Police say they have received about 100 tips since Papini’s disappearance.

Papini’s family has said they believe she was abducted.

Officials say her husband, Keith Papini, reported her missing when he came home from work and found that she hadn’t picked up their two children from daycare.

Her cell phone and headphones were found near where she was reported missing.
