Nearly two weeks after Vi Ripken was abducted from her home, police continue to search for clues and a suspect in the case.
police spokesman Lt. Fred Budnick said tips continue to come in, particularly following Friday's series of national television appearances and a high-profile news conference involving the victim's son—National Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken.
In an email Monday afternoon, Budnick wrote: "Over the weekend a few new tips have been called in, ten or so. The tips continue to be investigated."
Violet Ripken, 74, was taken from her home by a man hiding in her garage between 7 and 8 a.m. on July 24, and returned unharmed to her neighborhood, where she was found tied up in her car around 6:15 a.m. on July 25, police said.
The episode aired the same day that Cal Ripken went on and held in Baltimore.
Earlier in the week, throughout the Baltimore metro region featured the composite sketch, along with the 410-836-5432 tip line.
