 FBI joins search for missing NH teen

Abigail Hernandez turned 15 Saturday, but the day was far from a happy one for her family. Instead of celebrating her birthday, efforts to find Hernandez ramped up as the FBI joined the search.

Hernandez was last seen at her North Conway high school around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. According to the FBI, she was last seen wearing black leggings or yoga pants, a gray striped multi-colored sweater, and black leather boots.

The New Hampshire teen has now been missing for five days. Billboards with her photo and information have been posted. Jane Young from the Attorney General's Office said they are not giving up hope the young woman will be found. She noted that nothing has been ruled out in the investigation, but that there isn't evidence of foul play.
