SHASTA COUNTY- On Wednesday evening at 7:51, Keith Papini reporter his wife, Sherri Papini, as a missing person with suspicious circumstances.
Keith reported to deputies that upon his arrival home from work, he was not able to locate Sherri or their two children. Keith learned that the children had not been picked up from daycare as customary and subsequently checked his find my I-phone app and located Sherri's phone near the intersection of Old Oregon Trail and Sunrise Drive in Redding.

Please note that Keith's sister, Suzanne Papini, is withdrawing the funds from this campaign.
I was concerned about this case when I first heard about it. I cant imagine what those children were going through, not having there mother. However when I stumbled on an article that stated she had a similar "situation" happen to her 10 years ago, I became suspicious. I stumbled on several articles linking a statement she allegedly wrote speaking on her dislike for Latinas. I feel sorry for all the people on here that donated money to what seems to be a hoax or someone looking for attention.
Something very odd about this whole thing. I think the go fund should be suspended or put on hold and not released until the authorities finish their investigation completely. A lot of states have a crime victim compensation and if she was truly a victim that can be utilized.
Grateful that this ordeal is over for everyone involved, but I must agree with some other posters that I would like to see the money raised go to other families of missing persons. It should now be paid forward because there are many other missing people that did not get this type of exposure and may never see their loved ones again.
I would love to have a banner or sign made for Sherri to post in my yard - I have an acre & a half that runs along I-80, the main thoroughfare between Sacramento & Reno. Thousands of cars pass by daily that would see it. If anyone has suggestions on how to get one donated, I would be honored to display it. This family is very dear to my heart & took me in as a teenager when I was homeless & this is the least I can do to try to help. I left work immediately on Thursday & drove to Reddding to be available as soon as they allowed the public to search. I joined the search party Friday & posted flyers through the night on Saturday on my way back home to Sacramento, and spent the day today posting flyers around Placer County. I feel so helpless & want to do anything I can even being so far away.. so o would love to do the big sign if at all possible! Thank you all! Bless this sweet family ❤️️
This was a hoax, I knew the moment he claimed her disappearance, story stinks, and of course now they left town with the donations and the reward money she was given, nice payday for a few weeks of hiding out, over $100,000.00. The story is such an elaborate lie, she had just got breast implants less then 2 weeks before her alleged abduction, who jogs right after breast implant surgery? Also, Keith describes she lost 15% body weight, who describes her and her weight loss by body fat index? What a joke, I hope they are proud of themselves for ripping decent people off. They took the money and ran, what garbage!
Scammers! I can't believe this page is still running. I'll change my mind only if and when Mrs. Papini will show up with the pictures taken in the hospital after her allegedly kidnapping, thanking all people who generously donated to her cause. The several interviews released by her husband (after asking for privacy) were awkward and full of contradictions.
What happens to the money if this turns out to be a hoax? I read that Sherri has a past of accusing family members of harming her, in addition to kicking in her sisters exterior doors out of rage. the only good thing about this being a hoax is that this horrible nightmare didn't actually happen to her as I had a hard time reading what this woman went through, but if its a hoax that Sherri did to herself then the money needs to be returned and she needs help.
Okay, Thank you for letting me know! I'm happy to hear that! I don't really know how gofund me works besides the obvious (raising money). So I hope that didn't sound rude by asking that.. I was just asking incase the family needed to cover any other household costs etc.. Because that can be stressful also. We're all praying for Sherri's safe return home, as well as Keith & their families ❤
