Tennessee Family Lost In Mississippi Returns Home


MEMPHIS, TN (Ben Caxton) — An “urgent” 911 call to Memphis police Thursday morning, and an empty house touched off a frantic search for the missing family in Mississippi. That search has now been called off. WMC-TV in Memphis reported the Memphis Police Department had been searching for 37-year-old Catherine Rippe, 50-year-old Randall Foster Sr., 15-year-old Riley Rippe, and 9-year-old Randall Foster Jr. Riley Rippe is said to have phoned 911 around 12:20 AM yesterday from the family’s Memphis home. Police responded to the scene and found the door ajar, with signs of forced entry and blood. Officers told WMC-TV they had reason to believe Randall Foster Sr. had kidnapped Catherine Rippe and the two children. The family was believed to be in a black Chevy Silverado and last seen in Paris, Mississippi. By later that morning when contacted by the Clarion-Ledger, Memphis Police said the missing notification had been canceled. Newspaper reports indicated that Catherine Rippe, Riley Rippe, and Randall Foster Jr. drove up to their home in a black pickup truck Thursday morning and got out and went in the house. Randall Foster Sr. was not with them. No further explanations were forthcoming from Memphis authorities.
