Abigail Hernandez, a New Hampshire teen who went missing last October, was reunited with her family Sunday, but the mystery surrounding her disappearance continues to be the focus of a law enforcement investigation.
The 15-year-old was last seen leaving Kennett High School in Conway, New Hampshire, on Oct. 9, but she never made it home, WCSH6.com reported.
"The facts and circumstances surrounding Abigail's disappearance continue to be actively investigated by members of the agencies," said a statement released by the New Hampshire attorney general's office Monday

"Further details will be provided once it has been determined that releasing additional information will not compromise the integrity of the on-going criminal investigation. Law enforcement thanks the public for its cooperation and assistance in the investigation over the past months and continues to welcome the public's assistance as the investigation continues," the statement continued.
The girl's mother, Zenya Hernandez, released a statement Monday saying, "Today, we are the happiest people on earth." She also requested privacy as the family works to heal.
A Twitter account dedicated to finding Hernandez announced her return in a series of posts over the weekend.
A "Bring Abby Home" Facebook page announcing her return had more than 1,200 likes and 50 shares as of Tuesday.
In April, NBC News reported that Zenya Hernandez
received a letter from her daughter, which was postmarked several weeks after the teenager's disappearance. But authorities did not provide any further details about the contents of the letter or where the girl might be.
"It was unprecedented," FBI special agent Kieran Ramsey told NBC News. "It gave us hope. We are concerned for her safety. She is not out there alone. She has somebody who is either helping her, whether that be a friend, or what we fear is a foe."
