Father's relative: Abigail Hernandez’s dad ‘heartbroken’ over disappearance of his daughter
Ruben Hernandez is an architect who spends half his time at a home in New Hampshire and half his time in his native state of Texas, according to Velasquez, of Houston, who is Ruben Hernandez’s nephew.
“My uncle is so heartbroken right now; there’s no way he can talk about it; he wouldn’t be able to talk about it yet,” Velasquez said on Tuesday.
“Everyone on this side of the family is devastated, too,” he said.
He said Ruben Hernandez has family with homes in Sugarland, Texas, and Houston. He said Abigail and her sister visited their father in Texas as recently as last Christmas.
1,000 tips to FBI
Investigators say they still have no firm direction to follow in the case, but state and federal law enforcement officials are still performing “targeted” investigations based on tips they have received, which now number more than 1,000.
And he agreed with previous statements by Zenya Hernandez about the unlikely possibility that she ran away.
