NO MAJOR LEADS IN MISSING TEEN CASE

by Christian Mower on October 24, 2013

AS THE SEARCH FOR THE MISSING 15-YEAR-OLD NORTH CONWAY TEENAGER, ABIGAIL HERNANDEZ, CONTINUES INTO A THIRD WEEK AUTHORITIES HAVE NOT REPORTED ANY SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENTS IN THE CASE.

PAUL KIRSCH – THE PRESIDENT OF THE WHITE MOUNTAIN MILERS, A VALLEY-BASED RUNNING GROUP WHOSE ACTIVITIES ABIGAIL’S SISTER SARAH AND MOTHER ZENYA HAVE PARTICIPATED IN –IS PLANNING THE SATURDAY NIGHT VIGIL FOR ABIGAIL IN NORTH CONWAY’S SCHOULER PARK.

MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC ARE INVITED TO BRING FLASHLIGHTS AND GATHER AT THE BIG TENT AT THE PARK AT 6:30 P.M. SATURDAY FOR SOME INSPIRATIONAL WORDS ABOUT ABIGAIL – FOLLOWED BY A BRIEF WALK THAT WILL SYMBOLIZE LIGHTING THE WAY FOR HER TO COME HOME.

THE VIGIL WILL BE FOLLOWED SUNDAY BY THE MILERS’ ANNUAL HALF MARATHON. KIRSCH SAYS HE SEES THE RACE AS ANOTHER WAY TO PUBLICIZE THE SEARCH FOR ABIGAIL BECAUSE MANY PARTICIPATING RUNNERS WILL BE FROM OUT OF TOWN.

ABIGAIL WAS LAST SEEN LEAVING KENNETT HIGH SCHOOL THE AFTERNOON OF OCT. 9, 2013 – AND DESPITE AN AWARD OF UP TO $20,000 OFFERED BY THE FBI FOR HER RECOVERY – AND A MULTI-DAY SEARCH BY DOZENS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS, FIREFIGHTERS AND VOLUNTEERS IN AND AROUND HER HOME ON VILLAGE WAY THAT HAS SINCE BEEN SCALED BACK – AUTHORITIES SAY THEY DON’T HAVE ANY SOLID LEADS AS TO WHAT HAPPENED TO HER.

THEY CONTINUE TO REFER TO HER DISAPPEARANCE AS A “MISSING PERSONS” CASE.

KIRSCH SAYS HE HAS ALSO REACHED OUT TO A FRIEND WHO HAS GOOD CONTACTS WITH THE NEW HAMPSHIRE FISHER CATS AND MANCHESTER MONARCHS TO SEE IF THE TEAMS CAN HELP PUBLICIZE THE CASE.

AUTHORITIES LAST HELD A FORMAL PRESS CONFERENCE ABOUT THE CASE OCT. 17, 2013 AT THE CONWAY POLICE DEPT. AND SAID THEY WOULD NOT HOLD ANOTHER ONE UNTIL THEY HAD ANY SIGNIFICANT INFORMATION TO PASS ON.

ANYONE WHO HAS SEEN ABIGAIL HERNANDEZ OR KNOWS WHERE SHE IS IS ASKED TO CALL THE TOLL-FREE FBI TIPLINE AT 1-800-CALL-FBI OR CONWAY POLICE AT (603) 356-5715.
