'Good Morning America' viewers see how much people care about missing Abigail Hernandez
But last Friday morning, she was standing on the streets of New York, outside the studios of Good Morning America, holding a sign that asked the question, "Where's Abigail Hernandez?" Logsdon has joined in earnest the search for Hernandez, 15, who has been missing since Oct. 9. She was last seen walking home from Kennet High School in Conway. Since her disappearance, she has been the subject of a massive search by law enforcement agencies and thousands of volunteers, most of whom communicate via Facebook.
"I just got really interested in the case," she said.
As a mother helpng to raise three boys, Logdson, 43, felt a special bond to Zenya Hernandez, Abigail's mother.
Logsdon's husband, Lt. Col. John Logsdon of the New Hampshire Army National Guard, had a conference in New York City last week, so they decided to make the sign and display it in the city, in keeping with the volunteer search effort's urging of people to show Abigail's sign in as many places across the country as possible.
They decided they wanted to get the sign on ABC's "Good Morning America," and to do so Logsdon had to be outside the show's studios by 6:30 a.m. Logdson was one of the last ones allowed into the roped-off area for viewers and fans of the show. When the camera panned to the audience, their sign went out across America on the airwaves.
"We wanted Zenya Hernandez to know that many people are looking for Abby, that there are thousands of people on Facebook making every effort that they can to help her find Abby," she said.
The search, which is entering its 10th week, has still not yielded any firm direction for authorities to pursue, but the law enforcement "continues to be very active" in the case, said the FBI's Kieran Ramsey.
Anyone with a young girl, fitting Abby's description, needs to be reported immediately! Look for changes in behaviors of people you know. Someone may be acting extra paranoid, nervous, scared. Maybe even cocky, thinking they're getting away with holding Abby."
