BREAKING NEWS: Abigail Hernandez Abductor Arrested

A man residing near Abigail Hernandez was arrested today and charged with felony kidnapping and confinement of the 15-year-old girl nine months ago:

A traumatized "Abby" Hernandez somehow returned to her Conway New Hampshire home last weekend in a perilously malnourished state and since then has been quietly recuperating and cooperating with authorities still working her missing person case.

Earlier in the week, based on the teen's descriptions, police released an artist's sketch of a possible male suspect, and by Friday reported they were actively pursuing at least 20 "good leads" so far.

The arrest today of 34-year-old Nathaniel Kibby "without incident" at his Gorham, NH trailer home, just 30 miles north of where Abby Hernandez lives, was therefore a relatively swift -- but long overdue -- break in one of the strangest disappearances on record.

Kibby has been charged with felony kidnapping and is scheduled for arraignment tomorrow (Tuesday, July 29th) at Conway District Court. 

It is not known if the defendant has his own lawyer yet or if one will be appointed for him, but a press briefing has been scheduled for Tuesday immediately following the arraignment.



  1. UPDATE July 29, 2014: As the defendant in Abigail Hernandez's nine-month disappearance heads to court for arraignment on kidnapping charges this morning, information is leaking out concerning the possibility she'd been imprisoned in a converted shipping container located on the suspect's property.

    As we speak, the subject container, which is set off in a wooded area, is roped off with crime scene tape and investigators continue to inspect the premises.

    If true, it would help to explain the emaciated condition Hernandez returned in and her unusually pale complexion. Her mother also reports that the clearly traumatized teen is presently unable to eat any solid foods.

    Authorities say they are still in the dark as to how the child mysteriously made it back on July 20th after being gone for almost a year. In most abductions of that duration, victims are never seen or heard from again, and indeed, until her emergence on that date, Abigail Hernandez herself was unofficially presumed dead.

    This story is developing -- we welcome your comments and updates.

  2. I hope investigators are also looking to if this guy is connected to the Brianna Maitland disappearance 10 years ago from a nearby VT location.
