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.
