CONCORD, N.H. — Police say a missing New Hampshire teenager who disappeared nearly two months ago has been in contact with her mother.
The FBI and New Hampshire attorney general’s office say 15-year-old Abigail Hernandez wrote her mother a letter postmarked Oct. 23 that was received by her mother Nov. 6.
Police say they have verified the letter is authentic. They are not releasing it.
Law enforcement officials say the letter has given them hope, but fear for her safety.
Abigail was last seen Oct. 9 after leaving Kennett High School in North Conway. Police have said she walked her normal route toward home and sent several texts to a friend between 2:30 and 3 p.m. At first, police said she made it home but they later said that was untrue.
