THE ORGANIZER OF THE WEEKEND VIGIL IN NORTH CONWAY SAYS HE’S EXCITED THE VALLEY COMMUNITY COULD COME TOGETHER, TALK ABOUT THE MISSING 15-YEAR-OLD NORTH CONWAY TEENAGER, ABIGAIL HERNANDEZ – AND SHOW SUPPORT AND PROVIDE ENERGY TO ABIGAIL’S FAMILY.

CONWAY POLICE LT. CHRIS PERLEY SAYS ABOUT 500 PEOPLE TURNED OUT IN SCHOULER PARK SATURDAY NIGHT. ORGANIZER PAUL KIRSCH – PRESIDENT OF THE WHITE MOUNTAIN MILERS, A VALLEY-BASED RUNNING CLUB THAT INCLUDES MEMBERS OF ABIGAIL’S FAMILY – SAYS HE WAS IMPRESSED BY THE SIGHT OF ALL THE LIGHTS AS WALKERS TOOK A PATH AT THE NORTH CONWAY COUNTRY CLUB.

WALKERS ILLUMINATED THE PATH WITH THEIR FLASHLIGHTS IN A SYMBOLIC EFFORT TO LIGHT THE WAY HOME FOR ABIGAIL, WHO WAS LAST SEEN LEAVING KENNETT HIGH SCHOOL OCT. 9, 2013, APPARENTLY WALKING NORTHBOUND TOWARD HER HOME ON VILLAGE WAY.

PRIOR TO THE WALK – AND KEEPING WITH THE THEME OF THE LIGHT AND ILLUMINATION – PASTOR ANNE ROSER DELIVERED REMARKS OF HOPE TO THE CROWD AND ASKED EVERYONE TO JOIN IN PRAYER. KIRSCH SAYS HE WAS ALSO IMPRESSED WITH THE COMMENTS OF SOME TEENS WHO SPOKE.

ABIGAIL’S MOTHER ZENYA HERNANDEZALSO SPOKE, THANKING THE COMMUNITY FOR ITS CONTINUING SUPPORT AND SENDING HER LOVE TO ABIGAIL. KIRSCH SAYS SHE ALSO MADE ANOTHER IMPORTANT POINT, ASKING PEOPLE TO TRY AND REMEMBER – AND REPORT TO THE FBI – ANYTHING THEY MIGHT KNOW ABOUT ABIGAIL’S DISAPPEARANCE.

THE FBI IS OFFERING A REWARD UP TO $20,000 DOLLARS FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO ABIGAIL’S RECOVERY OR THE IDENTIFICATION, ARREST AND CONVICTION OF ANY PERSON(S) RESPONSIBLE FOR HER DISAPPEARANCE.

ANYONE WITH ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THE CASE IS ASKED TO CALL THE TOLL-FREE FBI TIPLINE AT 1-800-CALL-FBI OR CONWAY POLICE AT (603) 356-5715.

LT. PERLEY SAYS HE WAS CONTACTED BY A FORMER LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER IN MASS. – A MEMBER OF A VOLUNTEER GROUP OF ABOUT 60 PEOPLE CALLED “MISSION FOR THE MISSING” – THAT SEARCHED FOR ABIGAIL IN NORTH CONWAY OVER THE WEEKEND BUT DIDN’T REPORT ANYTHING SIGNIFICANT. PERLEY SAYS HIS DEPARTMENT APPRECIATES THE GROUP’S EFFORT AND HE ASKS EVERYONE TO REMAIN VIGILANT AND ON THE LOOKOUT FOR ABIGAIL.
