As Thanksgiving approaches, North Conway police are asking people to post more photos of 15-year old Abigail Hernandez throughout New England. She’s been missing for more than six weeks--since shortly before Columbus Day. Police say Thanksgiving is important because some people visiting the area when she disappeared could return for the holiday.
In a news conference Friday, Abigail’s mother, Zenya Hernandez, read from a statement.
Abigail Hernandez has now been missing for 19 days. Although thousands of acres have been combed and hundreds of tips have been followed, both the FBI and local police still don't know what happened between 3 and 4 in the afternoon on October 9th when Abby disappeared. Despite this, the Hernandez family and the local community remain hopeful. On Saturday night nearly 500 people attended a flashlight vigil in Schouler Park in downtown North Conway meant to light the way home for Abby. Sean Hurley was there and has this report.
