Baseball great Cal Ripken Jr. is making an appeal for the public's help in finding the man who kidnapped his mother; holding her against her will for a day before releasing her.
FOX News Radio's Rich Johnson reports from Washington DC:
Cal Ripken says his mother Vi is tough, but shaken after last week's kidnapping ordeal.
Ripken Jr: "She was taken from her home in her garage at gunpoint. She was tied up and she was in a car, basically for the next 23 hours."
Ripken tells FOX News, they don't yet know if the kidnapping was random, or whether they targeted Vi Ripken.
Ripken, Jr: "Law enforcement needs help in finding this guy."
And Ripken says his 74 year-old mother has not yet returned to her home north of Baltimore.
