Law enforcement officials are asking the public for help in identifying a man who may be tied to the disappearance of Abigail Hernandez. Authorities released a sketch today of a man Hernandez says drove her away from Conway in a navy blue pick-up truck in October of 2013. She describes the man as having darkish skin with dark brown eyes, black stubble facial hair, and someone who was slightly overweight and around five-foot-four-inches tall.
Officials say they’re still trying to confirm whether this man or any others took Hernandez against her will or concealed her whereabouts for the last nine months. They have continued to reiterate that Hernandez was 14 years old at the time of her disappearance and it is a felony for any person to take, entice away or conceal any child under the age of 18.
In a statement, Attorney General Joseph Foster said, “the individual or individuals who were involved with her disappearance and absence will now have to face the consequences of any unlawful actions. Finding these answers and assuring the perpetrator is brought to justice will help ensure a similar act is not committed against another child.”
Anyone who recognizes the man depicted in the attached sketch is asked to contact the New Hampshire State Police.
