Police in North Conway, N.H., have discovered that the cell phone of missing teenager Abigail Hernandez was used on the day she vanished.

According to the Union Leader, the call was made four hours after Abigail was last seen as she was walking home from school on Oct. 9.

The call was made in the vicinity of Cranmore Mountain Resort, about two miles from Abigail’s home.

The search for Abigail continued Monday morning, with authorities combing the Cranmore Mountain area. The FBI Child Rapid Abduction Deployment Team has been called in to assist in the search, but authorities say thus far there is no reason to suspect foul play.

“The only thing we want in this is Abigail’s safe return,” Conway Police Chief Ed Wagner said during a press conference over the weekend. Abigail’s mother Zenya pleaded for her daughter’s return, and wished her a happy 15th birthday.

According to the FBI, Abigail Hernandez was last seen about 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 9, when she left Kennett High School to walk home. She was last seen wearing black leggings/yoga pants, a gray striped multi-colored sweater, and black leather boots.

Anyone with information relating to Hernandez’s whereabouts is urged to call Conway Police at 603-356-5715.
