Regular newspaper feature gave Abby 'hope'

Abigail, now 15, disappeared Oct. 9, 2013, while walking home from Kennett High School, where she was a freshman. She returned home July 21.
Late Saturday morning, crime tape was still up around Kibby's unit in the Gateway Trailer Park while representatives of several agencies, among them the New Hampshire State Police Major Crime Unit, searched the area.
At the time of his arrest, Kibby was known to have in his possession 11 firearms. He had lived in the Gateway Trailer Park since 2009 and owned his trailer, according to Wallace Corrigan Jr., son of the park owner.
Kibby had been convicted of several misdemeanor offenses and felony possession of marijuana, according to court records.
The Class B felony charge is somewhat unique. The underlying statute says it can be levied only when "the actor voluntarily releases the victim without serious bodily injury and in a safe place prior to trial...."
Mark Fischler, the chairman of the Criminal Justice Department at Plymouth State University and a former criminal defense attorney with the state Public Defender Office, said the Kibby case is being watched by court observers because it is unique in terms of the circumstances as well as the high bail.
