Vi Ripken Not Living at Home Since Abduction

Cal Ripken Jr. addressed his mother's well-being on Good Morning America Friday.

, mother of hall of fame baseball player Cal Ripken Jr., has not returned to her long-time home in Aberdeen since .

"She's not back in her home yet, so I guess that gives you some indication to how she's feeling. Your sense of security is violated," Ripken told ABC's "Good Morning America" Friday morning.

Ripken told "Good Morning America" he didn't find out his mother was missing until 9 p.m. that evening. Violet Ripken was taken from her home early July 24.

"She was doing her normal days activities and was met in her garage at gunpoint," Ripken said.

The elder Ripken was then tied up and driven around in a car for about 23 hours.

"Who knows what actually happened in the car for that period of time, mom tries to articulate it but really it was just her trying to stay calm and hope and believe that she was going to be returned," Ripken said in the interview.

Ripken told "Good Morning America" his mother's kidnapping was premeditated, but it's unclear if it had anything to do with the family's fame.

"It could be a random act or it could be one that was deeper than that," Ripken told show hosts.

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.

Why would you want to advertise the fact that Vi is not living in her house? Now everyone knows that the house is empty....what a bizarre thing to say
