Just one week since Sherri Papini was reunited with her family after missing for three weeks, the stay-at-home mom's husband Keith revealed chilling new details about the alleged kidnapping in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ 20/20, set to air Friday, December 2.

In a preview clip of the bombshell sit-down, Keith revealed that Sherri, 34, said she was transported in a car with her alleged kidnappers, who chained her arm inside the vehicle. According to Sherri, her captors were two Hispanic women armed with guns.

“She was bound. . .she had a metal chain around her waist," Keith told Matt Gutman in the sneak peak from ABC News.

"She had a bag over her head. . .she was chained anytime she was in a vehicle," he continued of her captivity claims. "They opened the door. . .they cut something, freed her restraints that were holding her in the vehicle and they pushed her out."

As previously reported, Papini had been missing for 22 days before she was found on Thanksgiving day.

Meanwhile, the police continue to search for Papini's captors, though Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko confessed that detectives have yet to establish a motive behind the kidnapping.

"Our investigators have spoken to Miss Papini for a number of hours Monday and then several hours again Tuesday," Bosenko announced during a press conference. "Right now we have no known reason why she was abducted, we do not know if she was specifically targeted or if this was a random abduction. It's still an active and ongoing investigation and we're still looking for the reasons or the motive for this abduction. Abductions are generally rare, especially in this area, but I mean in general an adult abduction is an unusual occurrence."

The 20/20 interview airs on Friday, December 2, at 10 p.m. ET.
