ABERDEEN, Md. - Authorities have released two photos of a man they say is connected with the abduction of Vi Ripken.

Police refused to say where the photos were taken, but they appear to be frames from surveillance video at a store.

Police describe the suspect as a white man about 5'10" tall, weighing 180 pounds, with short brown hair and glasses. He is wearing an orange baseball cap and a white shirt.

Authorities say rewards of up to $2,000 are available for tips that lead to a conviction.

Ripken, the mother of Orioles legend Cal Ripken, was kidnapped from her home on Tuesday and found safe near her home the next day.
