Ripken was abducted by a man between 7 and 8 a.m. Tuesday after he pulled a handgun and forced her into a 1998 Lincoln Town Car, according to the Aberdeen Police Department.
The Aberdeen Police Department received a call from Baltimore County police about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, saying they had received a call about a suspicious vehicle in the Ebenezer Road area that may have something to do with the case.
"This has been a very trying time for our family, but we are grateful and relieved that mom is back with us, safe and healthy," said a statement released by the Ripken family. "We want to thank everyone for their tremendous support, especially all of the law enforcement agencies that worked so hard and quickly."
The suspect was described as a white male in his late 30s to early 40s.
Mr. Ross could not at this time be reached for comment.
In all seriousness, thank God she's ok.
