Since the Saturday night kidnapping there has been no communication or ransom demand for Ruffin. The FBI stepped into the case along with local, county and state law enforcement agencies.

Ruffin has a 4-year-old child at home waiting for her return, along with her family and friends. Police say any small piece of information could be critical to the investigation and they are hoping the local community will get involved.
