After nearly 10 days, continue to look for a major break in the Vi Ripken abduction case.
Despite new tips received and featuring Vi Ripken's son, National Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Budnick said police have not made any major advancements in finding said to have abducted the 74-year-old Aberdeen resident last week.
In an email to media Thursday, Budnick thanked media for publishing a composite sketch and video of the suspect. He said police "received about another ten tips" which have been passed on to investigators.
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.
