Cal Ripken's mother safe after abduction

Wednesday, July 25, 2012 - 12:06pm

The mother of baseball legend Cal Ripken Jr. was safe Wednesday after someone abducted her the day before, from her Maryland home investigators said.

A man with a gun showed up at Vi Ripken's home between 7 and 8 a.m. Tuesday, police in Aberdeen, Maryland, said in a statement. The man forced her into a vehicle and drove off, the statement said.

About 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Baltimore County police contacted their counterparts in Aberdeen to discuss a report of a suspicious vehicle. Information from that call led to the investigation of Ripken's whereabouts, the statement said. She was found unharmed about 6:15 a.m. Wednesday in a vehicle near her home.

Investigators are looking for a motive. Aberdeen police said that they have no knowledge of a ransom being demanded or paid and that Cal Ripken apparently wasn't contacted.

Rich Wolf, a spokesman for the FBI in Baltimore, said the FBI is helping local police investigate the case. Police are looking for a white male in his late 30's to early 40's last seen wearing a light colored shirt, glasses and "camo pants."

The Ripken family released a statement expressing gratitude for Vi Ripkin's safe return.

"This has been a very trying time for our family, but we are grateful and relieved that mom is back with us, safe and healthy," the statement said.

Cal Ripken Jr. achieved stardom as a shortstop with the Baltimore Orioles and is a member of baseball's Hall of Fame.

He holds the Major League Baseball record for playing in the most consecutive games -- 2,632 from 1982 to 1998. He made 19 straight All-Star appearances and won two Most Valuable Player awards, racking up 3,184 hits and 431 home runs.
