Abigail Hernandez's mother adds reward, releases photo

CONWAY, New Hampshire (NEWS CENTER) -- Abigail Hernandez's mother offered an additional $10,000 reward Thursday for information leading to her safe return.

Zenya Hernandez announced the reward via email. She said the $10,000 would be in addition to the $20,000 reward the FBI has offered for tips that would lead to finding Abigail Hernandez.

In the email, Zenya Hernandez wrote, in order to receive the reward, "[the] information must be concrete, specific, actionable, and lead to Abby's return home."

Zenya Hernandez also wrote, "We don't believe that Abby ran away, and that she would be able to survive on her own for this long. We don't know, if Abby is alive at this time, or if she is safe ... She has never run away before. There were no indications that she planned to run away. When we say, 'Abby Come Home,' we mean that we welcome Abby unconditionally and with open arms. However, we do not assume that Abby has the ability to come and go on her own free will."

In addition to the new cash reward, Zenya Hernandez released a new photo of Abigail:

Zenya Hernandez said the photo was taken at Kennett High School approximately three hours before she disappeared on Oct. 9, 2013.

"It has been months since we last saw Abby. There is somebody who has some knowledge or a hint, but thinks that it's not significant, or who is afraid or hesitant to come forward," Zenya Hernandez wrote. "All tips, leads, and clues are anonymously followed up on, no matter how vague or insignificant. We ask that nothing is assumed at this time, but that people out there remain vigilant. We hope that somebody recognizes Abby, or that somebody knows something about her whereabouts, or who she is with."

Anyone with information about her disappearance is asked to contact the FBI.
