Note: The Ripken Family and Ripken Baseball today announced a $100,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the man who abducted Vi Ripken from her home a year ago. The announcement was made at a press conference Cal Ripken Jr. held at the Sports Legends Museum in partnership with the Aberdeen Police Department and the Baltimore Division of
the FBI.

Ripken Baseball, the Orioles, the Ravens and Under Armour have come together in this effort.

““My mother, brothers and sister are very appreciative and grateful for the support we have received from our community,” Cal Ripken Jr. said in a statement. “The fact the Orioles, Ravens and Under Armour want to help us find this person demonstrates this isn’Â’t just about our mom but about our community as a whole. We hope this renewed effort will bring this individual to justice and make all of us that much safer.”

On the morning of July 24, 2012, Vi Ripken was abducted at gunpoint from her home in Aberdeen and held captive for 24 hours, driven by the abductor across state lines in her vehicle before being returned to her home early the following morning. Despite eyewitness sightings of the subject, as well as video surveillance, no arrests have been made in the case.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call either AmericaÂ’’s Most Wanted hotline at 1-800-Crime-TV or the FBI at 410-265-8080.

•The decision to pay a reward based on information received and the amount of that award shall be within the sole discretion of Ripken Baseball and the Ripken family.
