Baltimore, MA (WDAY TV) -- Baseball great Cal Ripken Jr. says his 74-year-old mother is doing " pretty well" after she was kidnapped last week.

Surveillance video gives us a glimpse of the man suspected of abducting Vi Ripken at gun point. Ms. Ripken told the police the kidnapper tied her up and held her captive for almost 24 hours. The Baseball Hall of Famer says it was a tough ordeal for his mom.

Ripken Newser says, "She refuses to let that affect it to that point, but from a mental, traumatic standpoint, she's still a little shaky and we're all a little shaky."

Ripken appealed for the public's help in locating the man responsible for the kidnapping. And because Ms Ripken never saw her abductor, investigators are left with no suspects and no motive.
