“We currently have no reason to disbelieve Sherri Papini’s story, Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko told ABC News. “She was assaulted and had injuries which she was treated for.”

The 34-year-old woman was found bound by restraints along Interstate 5 in Yolo County. Officials were called about 4:30 a.m. Thanksgiving Day after Papini was able to flag down a motorist. The mother of two was treated for injuries and reunited with her husband, Keith.

Officials said they were not aware of a motive for the apparent kidnapping. Bosenko also said it was not clear whether Papini knew her abductors.
