Abigail Hernandez' mother: 'I keep thinking, she'll be found'
This is the image that will appear on an Interstate 93 billboard in Boston alerting drivers to Abigail Hernandez’s disappearance.
Since her daughter, 15-year-old Abigail Hernandez, disappeared after leaving school on Oct. 9, she's been on an emotional roller coaster.
"We try to keep our hopes up. Every day they say they have new clues, but nothing ever comes from it," Zenya Hernandez said Monday at her home.
She is comforted, she said, by the continued strong support from the community."It's amazing, overwhelming, most of these people helping me I don't even know," she said.
"Someone has to come forward and help us find her," Zenya Hernandez said, with a defiant tone she expressed at the vigil Saturday. "Someone knows what happened."
She was last seen walking away from Kennett High School after school. Her last text message was to her boyfriend at around 2:53 p.m. that day, when she sent him a heart. After that, the phone, a white iPhone in a pink case, made one last contact with a cell tower on Cranmore Mountain at 3:07 p.m. The phone was likely updating itself, investigators say, but for some reason, it then went dead.
Abigail is also a very happy girl, her mother said. She had a Monday cleaning job that she looked forward to each week. She and her mother had made plans for the weekend of Oct. 12, Abigail's 15th birthday.
We were making plans for the weekend to be together," Hernandez said.
"It's been three weeks now; it's hard to keep up hope. Everybody says keep up the hope, and I try, but it's hard," she said.
As of Monday, there were no new developments in the case. Authorities say there is still no evidence of how and why Abigail disappeared.
