N.H. town on edge since teen vanished 15 yr old Abigail Hernandez still missing


In my city there’s an Autistic boy missing in NYC for over 2 weeks.This not a good thing and a nightmare for any parent.

Boston Globe reports a dark-haired, dark-eyed girl peers out from a letter-sized poster taped to the doors of businesses lining Main Street in the tourist town of teenteenNorth Conway.

Missing, it says.

What happened to 15-year-old Abigail Hernandez, who disappeared Oct. 9, has people on edge in the town of 2,300 residents in Mount Washington Valley. There are shades of the still-unsolved killing of another young girl from rural New Hampshire two years ago: 11-year-old Celina Cass disappeared from her West Stewartstown home, and her body was recovered a week later in the Connecticut River.

Abigail left Kennett High School at 2:30 p.m. on a Wednesday and walked the same route she usually did toward the town house she shares with her mother about 2 miles away. When her mother returned home that evening, Abigail was missing and she hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

‘‘It’s just that in places like a small town, it hits close to home,’’ said Kelly Canfield as she worked the counter at Zeb’s General Store, where plate-sized lollipops at the register catch the eye of younger visitors. Canfield has three children – a 10-year-old daughter and two sons, 13 and 6 – and has always felt safe. ‘‘You see it happening in other places, but you don’t expect it here. It’s scary.’’
