CONWAY, N.H. — Abigail Hernandez spoke to the media for the first time - to thank them.

Thursday morning, Abby and her mother Zenya stopped by the Conway Daily Sun to thank the staff.

Abby said she saw the paper's count of the numbers of days that she was gone while she was missing, and it gave her hope.

Her alleged kidnapper, Nathaniel Kibby, was arraigned Monday. He's being held on $1 million dollar cash bail.

Kibby's next court appearance is scheduled for August 12.
