Abducted California jogger skips town with family and leaves dogs behind

Police on the hunt for two Hispanic women suspected to be involved

 

The California mom found beaten and bloody on a highway after going missing for three weeks has skipped town with her husband — and left their two dogs behind.

Sherri and Keith Papini left their home in Redding with their two kids but decided not to bring the dogs, friends said.

A “buddy of Keith’s” was at the Papini home on Sundust Road on Saturday around noon — and told a Post reporter he was there to “walk the dogs.”

He then took the smaller dog on a leash and said he “couldn’t answer any questions” and “I’m going to go walk her now.”

He said he was there “just helping out.”

A neighbor who has lived next to the Papini house, which is Keith’s childhood home, and has known him since he was 5 years old, said, “I don’t think they’re ever coming back here again.”
