New surveillance footage shows formerly missing mom Sherri Papini sprinting in a dark California street, moments after being released by her two alleged kidnappers.
According to KCRA, the Shasta County Sheriff's Office claimed the video was captured at 4:15am on November 24, 2016, near the Jehova's Witness church where Papini reportedly ran to seek help.
She was "looking for help," Sergeant Brian Jackson told PEOPLE. "She saw a building and she didn't know what it was and went to look for help. It was 4 o'clock in the morning and there was nobody there. And she went back the other way."

Police said the footage was taken minutes before a trucker called local authorities for help. He had reportedly found Papini tied in restraints and branded on the right shoulder.
Papini was allegedly abducted on November 2, 2016. Her husband reported her missing that dame day, when she failed to pick their children up from school. She was not seen or heard of for 22 days, until she was suddenly released by her kidnappers on November 24, when the video was taken.
Now safe with her family, Papini later told investigators that she was held at gunpoint by two Hispanic females who wore handkerchiefs over their mouths as a disguise. They physically hurt her but did not torture her sexually. She said they never put out a ransom and claimed she did not know why they released her.
Police said they are just now releasing the footage in hopes that someone will come forward with more information about the alleged kidnappers. "maybe there is that one person who can have that one piece of information that can help," said Sergeant Jackson.
