Early this morning (July 25) in northeast Baltimore, Vi Ripken, mother of baseball great, Cal Ripken Jr., was abducted from her home. The 74-year old woman was abducted by an armed man and forced into her car.

She was found a short time later near her home in her car. Police say she was unharmed. Police are still searching for the suspect. No proposed motive was given for the abduction.

From the Associated Press:

Vi Ripken was kidnapped between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. Tuesday by a man who forced her into her car, according to Aberdeen police. She was found about 6:15 a.m. Wednesday unharmed in her car near her home in Aberdeen, a middle class neighborhood of about 15,000 people some 25 miles from Baltimore.

Vi Ripken described her abductor as a tall, thin white man with glasses, but police spokesman Lt. Fred Budnick had no other details.
