Abby, more than anything else in the world, I want to see you again. Our prayers go unanswered, but we won’t loose faith. I miss you. Sarah misses you. Your friends miss you. What I learned in the last months, made me incredibly proud of you. Abby stay strong. There are hard things in life, but we overcome. We won’t stop looking. Hang in there. Love and hugs. Mom
We wanted Abby to see all of the places where people are sharing her story and are praying for her. Please take a minute to go to our Map and put your location and a message of support for Abby. To access the map, go here.
Note, you can’t add your location from a mobile device, only from a tablet or computer. You can always send us a message to get your location added.
I know that this is not abby’s wall, but I really want to write something to her if she ever gets the chance to read the wonderful, good hearted posts on this page.
I really miss you. I miss telling you the silly things about really anything, and calling you “gurl” because we thought it was the silliest thing people said. I really miss texting you in science when I hated the lesson, and making faces to eachother. I miss talking about the real stuff, like about love and having faith. Not only faith in god but faith in life. I knew I wasn’t so alone when I felt one way or another. I miss the one time we threw on the beatles #1 hit album on my record player, and singing to “hey Jude” because you loved it. I remember when we all shared something about our selves during that sleep over for my birthday. I really want to turn 14 again and go back to that so I can revisit that experience at the hockey game and see you again. Now I’m going to turn 15 in two months. I wanted to celebrate it with you. When you come home I want to be able to use the $20,000 to throw you a really cool party. No one has to go, not even me. You can have it all to yourself, or you can not have a big party if you came home. I promise it will be really awesome. Lately I’ve been dreaming. I dreamt there was this big school dance with purple curtains and we were all dancing, then I saw you. Someone told me you were there and I just hugged you and we started dancing. It was really fun.
I wish I could stop crying writing this. But you’re on my mind a lot, I feel guilty you’re not on my mind more. When I hear this song, “runaway train” by soul asylum, I think about you. It’s not about people who are runaways, they’re about all missing kids. It’s about the runaways, the stolen kids, the ones who are in a situation they just can’t get out of. I don’t know where you are or your situation. All I know is I miss you and it really hurts not having you around.
Today marks three months that Abby went missing. Please keep Abby, Zenya and Sarah in your thoughts and prayers. We will never give up hope.

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.
- Share Zenya’s letter (Abby’s mom) from the 11/22 Press Conference
Stay tuned for some more ideas soon. If you have your own thoughts or ideas, Fill out the Contact form. I love hearing from people.
Thank you all in your efforts to help find Abby. Together, remaining positive, communicating, sharing, posting and reporting tips, we will bring her home.
Thanks to Fox News 25 out of Boston for covering the volunteer efforts and Thanksgiving message from Abby’s mom to Abby. Please help keep her story out in the public eye with posters, sharing on Facebook and any other way you can think of.
