FBI

The mother of Abigail Hernandez, the New Hampshire teenager who has been missing since she was last seen leaving her school in October, issued a plea for her daughter’s return Friday.

“I miss you and love you so much more than you can imagine,” said Hernandez in the letter. “I feel your absence every day. You belong home with me.”

Abigail Hernandez was last seen leaving Kennett High School.

“Abby, you are a strong young woman and I am staying strong for you,” her mother wrote. “You are courageous, you are smart, and you are beautiful.”

Hernandez said in the letter that she did not believe Abigail was dead, and she hoped her daughter would reach out to her.

“Abby, I keep having a dream where you come home and I give you the biggest hug ever,” she wrote. “I know in my heart this dream means something and that it matters. I pray to God it will come true.”

The letter is signed, “Love, Mom.”

State and Conway police and the FBI have received hundreds of tips in the case. An online vigil for the teenager was held Nov. 3, via social media sites and the hashtag #bringabbyhome.

The FBI is offering a $20,000 reward to anyone who provides information leading to a conviction in the case.
