Abby's home, but answers aren't as police ask public for help
Police are asking for anyone who saw Abigail Hernandez or female wearing this clothing and carrying the drawstring bag below in Conway Sunday night to contact them.
Hernandez, 15, was reunited with her family late Sunday night. But authorities apparently need more information than Abigail is giving.
Police want to talk to anyone who saw "Abigail Hernandez or a female" wearing the pants and sweater and carrying a camouflage-print drawstring bag in the area of North South Road Sunday between 10 and 10:30 p.m.
“Until such time that law enforcement officials have a comprehensive understanding of the facts surrounding Abigail’s disappearance and nine-month absence, there will be no further press briefings,” the news release said.
“It’s hard enough, almost impossible, for an adult to disappear and leave no traces, but this 15-year-old girl did it, obviously with some help,” said Bill Barry, a retired 17-year veteran tracker and missing-child investigator with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Department.
“Law enforcement is going to lean toward foul play involved, because usually these cases do not have a good ending,” he said.
Young would not comment when asked how much the nine-month investigation has cost.
“Probably hundreds of thousands of dollars, when you look at all the agencies involved,” Barry said.
Abigail’s mother, Zenya Hernandez, has asked for privacy for the time being. Her father, Ruben Hernandez of Bartlett, said he was thankful for his daughter’s return, whatever the circumstances.
“I am also grateful to everyone that took the time to express their thoughts and prayers, and to those that put time and expense to the effort in finding Abby. I would especially like to thank volunteers Paul Kirsch and Amanda Smith for going beyond the call.”
