Transcript of Video (from ABC News website):
A brand-new development in the search for a new hampshire teenager missing for more than two months. A new lead. A mysterious letter from the girl to her parent.
Linsey davis is tracking the story. Reporter: We spoke exclusively with abbey hernandez’s mother last night. She never gave up home.
This letter gave her an norls amount of hope. She says he sees abbey in her dreams and doesn’t want to wake up because that’s when this nightmare returns. It’s been two months since the hernandez family has seen their youngest daughter, 15-year-old abgail.
We’re concerned for her safety. She has somebody helping her whether that be a friend or what we fear is a foe. Reporter: The case was initially considered a runaway.
But took a turn when the mother received a letter from abigail ON NOVEMBER 6th. Authorities are not releasing details about it. They believe she is in grave danger.
One fbi special agent saying it could be a situation like the young women tortured and he would captive. I want to see you again. Reporter: In her first interview, zenya hernandez says she has new hope that her daughter is alive.
It was numbing for the first three weeks. Four weeks. And then, I received the letter.
It was like exhilarating. I wept from constantly thinking what could have happened and going through every theory and case scenario in my head, like nonstop. To like, okay, there’s hope.
Reporter: The fbi is hoping for another communication from abigail. I’m playi praying a miracle happens. Reporter: This is the last nope photo of abby.
The day she vanished. A lot of people say I’m living the worst thing I parent can live through. It is very hard.
But I’m relieved every day that we don’t have bad news. Reporter: Abby’s mother says the best way for her to cope is to keep searching. I’ll never stop looking.
I’ll never lose hope. Reporter: According to the fbi, the letter has not produced ANY VIABLE LEADS As TO ABBY’S Whereabouts. They have not released information about the letter because they fear copy cats
Zenya Hernandez, Abby’s mom, will be interviewed on Good Morning America on Monday December 9th between 7 and 9 AM. We hope you can watch it and we thank Michele McPhee for the time she spent on the interview. We appreciate the tremendous support from GMA as we all work together to bring this wonderful girl back home.
We will make sure to post any video from the interview here on the website and also on the Facebook Page
Thanks to everyone who is being supportive of the Hernandez family and for everyone who is sending out thoughts of hope and love to Abby to help bring her home.
Today there was a press conference in Concord, NH regarding contact Abby has had with her mom via a letter. The complete video of that conference is posted below. They once again have asked for all of our help to get the word out. It may sometimes seem frustrating as we all want to do more and wonder, is there really anything I personally can do to help find Abby?
Unlrelated to this, yesterday, Nelson Mandela died. As we all know, he was a man who faced insurmountable odds in his fight against Apartheid and he made a difference because he never gave up. Seth Godin wrote a blog post about this that I think is appropriate for all of us as we struggle to figure out how we can help find Abby. That blog post is here. I wanted to quote two of the sentences from that post talking about the important lessons we can learn from Nelson Mandela:
“You can make a difference.”
“Your lever is far longer than you imagine it is, if you choose to use it.”
In this case, your lever is the power of social media, of storytelling about Abby, of hanging up posters, talking to your friends, and keeping vigilant in your own community for changes, for unusual behavior. We are the voice, eyes and ears of this search for Abby. Law Enforcement has been very supportive of our efforts and we cannot express our gratitude enough for their efforts. Please continue to help find Abby as we all work together in positive ways to bring this amazing, smart, creative, wonderful girl home. You can make a difference. There are lots of ways you can help, click here for some of the ideas.
Thanks for all of your help.
People have been extremely generous in their offers of help to get the word out about Abby and all of these efforts are truly appreciated. Here’s a quick list of tips on how you can help spread the word:
- Report any tips immediately and confidentially to 1-800-225-5324. If for any reason you are not comfortable reporting them, send them to me and I will report them. Please don’t post them on Facebook first, report them. Don’t assume someone else reported them either. The FBI would rather get a tip twice than not at all Your tip could be the difference in finding Abby.
- Print out some posters and put them up in your community. Train stations, bus stations, high traffic areas like malls are a great start. We just updated the posters with the website address and new photos. Click here for poster links.
- Share Abby on your website, blog or e-newsletter. If you have some space on the sidebar of your blog or website and you wouldn’t mind giving some space to Abby, this is a great way to get her face out there. Best of all, it’s free!! Click here for pictures to use on blogs.
- Share her photos on social media. Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Google+ – where you have a social media presence, try and share something about Abby every couple of days. We have some pictures and some text you can share at our photos page.
- Purchase a “Missing Abby” magnet and put it on your car or truck. This is especially a good idea if you do a lot of traveling. We are selling them at cost of materials only. Info on purchasing.
- Outfit your long haul truck or fleet of trucks with Abby Missing magnets.
We are working with several truck companies who have placed Abby magnets on their long distance trucks. If you are an independent owner-operator or own a fleet of trucks, we would love to work with you too. Contact us on how we can help you do this.

Zenya, Abby’s mom read a letter to Abby at the 11/22 press conference. The NH Attorney General also asked us all to keep sharing Abby’s story, especially outside of the Mt. Washington Valley.
There will be a press conference on Friday 11/22 in the afternoon regarding the Abigail Hernandez case. This press conference is being called by law enforcement. Time will be sometime around 3:30 or so. Multiple media sites have confirmed that they will be attending.
Related to this, there is also a new Facebook page related to Abby that I have set up. I did this to start with a clean slate on posts and to identify myself as the admin of the page as there has been some confusion on other pages admins.

White Mountains Regional High School in Whitefield, NH held an Abby awareness and support fundraiser in late October. In a letter I got from the school: “On Thursday October 31st we held a school wide fundraiser to aid in the search efforts for Abigail Hernandez. We are a regional high school with a student body of just over 400 students… We all pray for Abigail’s safe return!”
In the pic you can see one of the students making posters for the event.
Thank you to everyone in Whitefield for supporting the search for Abby!
