Last week, her story was featured on the Nancy Grace show on Headline News. Last Friday, her case was featured on a live web cast from the Huffington Post.
"It's very important from a law enforcement point of view that we keep her face out there as much as possible," Senior Associate Attorney General Jane Young said.
Meanwhile, the local volunteer search effort has expanded. Head volunteer Paul Kirsch said a growing group of area residents continue to get Hernandez's photo and details out to as many people as possible, using every medium possible.
The official volunteer web site, www.bringabbyhome.com, has had 14,000 visitors since Nov. 5. And the Facebook campaign, which reached more than 3,200 users during a recent online vigil, continues.
"Although everything we do may not have the high visibility of an online vigil, our resolve to find Abby and to continue to find new and creative ways to keep her face and message out there are continuing to grow."
It's been more than five weeks since Hernandez was last seen. Authorities still have no concrete leads or direction in the case, Young said.
