• Missing N.H. teens' mom makes plea at press conference


    North Conway, N.H. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Six weeks have passed since New Hampshire teen Abigail Hernandez went missing. N.H. Senior Assistant District Attorney Jane Young spoke at a press conference Friday regarding Hernandez and allowed Hernandez's mother, Zenya to address her daughter.

    Abigail Hernandez vanished after leaving Kennett High School in early Oct. She left the school around 2:30 p.m., walked along Eagles Way and was last seen taking a short cut through a power line trail.

    "We have a confirmed sighting of her leaving school at about 2:30 on October the ninth. That sighting is from two classmates that know Abigail and we've talked to them," Kieran Ramsey, the assistant special agent in charge of the Boston FBI, said.

    For 20 minutes after she was last seen, she used her cell phone to text.

    According to Ramsey, those texts were routine after school messages.

    The state police, FBI and Conway police have searched diligently for Hernandez, Young said. Police are following up on all the leads that come in.

    "We are looking for any path that brings Abby home to us," she said.

    It's important that Hernandez's picture stay out there and that it go beyond the community in the event that she is no longer in the area, Young said at the press conference.

    Zenya Hernandez, took the opportunity to address her daughter and believes that she is still "out there somewhere."

    "I will do anything and everything in my power to help you make your dreams come true. Abby I keep having a dream where you come home and I give you the biggest hug ever. I know in my heart this dream means something and it matters," she said.

    Police are urging anyone with information to contact them.
