Cal Ripken Jr. announced a $100,000 reward Thursday for information that helps lead to the capture and conviction of the person who abducted his mother a year ago.

Vi Ripken was taken from her Aberdeen home at gunpoint on July 24, 2012, and returned unharmed 24 hours later. The former Oriole said he hoped the reward would re-energize his mother's unsolved case.

In the crime's immediate aftermath, the Aberdeen Police Department released a sketch, photographs and a surveillance video that were believed to show the potential suspect.
