BALTIMORE (AP) — Cal Ripken says his 74-year-old mother is doing "pretty well" and has been comforted by family members since her kidnapping last week.

The Hall of Fame infielder told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Friday that his mother Vi is a tough woman, but her sense of security has been violated. He says she has not yet returned to her home in Aberdeen, Md.

Vi told police she was kidnapped at gunpoint last week, blindfolded and driven around. She was found unharmed in her car the following day.

Cal Ripken has scheduled a news conference for Friday morning in Baltimore, when he's expected to provide an update on the investigation.

Aberdeen, Md., police have released a sketch and video of the suspect, but have provided few details.
