(Newser) – Amazing news from California: Sherri Papini, the mother of two who vanished after going for a jog Nov. 2, has been found alive, the New York Daily News reports. "She is safe, in stable condition, and receiving medical clearance at an undisclosed hospital," the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post. "She has been reunited with her husband."

Papini, who was last seen jogging in her neighborhood near Redding, was found "out of the area," according to the sheriff's office. It's not clear whether the 34-year-old was abducted, but the sheriff's office says more details will be given at a press conference later Thursday. Last week, an anonymous donor offered a $50,000 "ransom reward" for Papini's return. (Read more missing woman stories.)
