Family says missing NH teen returned home thin, very weak

Posted: Updated:
CONWAY, N.H. (WHDH) - For the first time there is some information about the condition of Abigail Hernandez, the girl who vanished for nine months and showed up back home in New Hampshire last week.

The 15-year-old was reunited with her family Sunday, July 20.

Friday night her family released a statement thanking people for their support and shedding some light into Abby's medical condition saying she's thin, very weak and that they're working on getting her to eat solid food.

Authorities have not released any more details about how Abby disappeared or where she has been for the past nine months.


The Hernandez family expresses their deepest thanks to the community, law enforcement and media for their continued support. The extent of our gratitude can hardly be expressed in words and we are beyond overjoyed about Abby's return.
The last few days have been extremely busy while law enforcement and medical concerns have had to be addressed.  We are working in full support of law enforcement's efforts to help the ongoing investigation.
Right now, Abby is resting, extremely tired and in deteriorated health, and has lost a lot of weight.  She is working to build her strength back and we hope soon she will be back on solid foods.
We appreciate people's vigilance as they share the sketch photo that law enforcement has distributed and we hope that very soon this long, long ordeal can come to some closure. 
At this time we are trying to focus on the peace and joy of the moment of Abby's return.
