CONWAY, N.H. - Law enforcement officials say a missing New Hampshire teenager who vanished two months ago on her way home from high school was in contact with her mother after she disappeared.

CBS Boston reports Abigail Hernandez, 15, is believed to be alive but is still considered missing.

The North Conway teen was last seen Oct. 9 after leaving Kennett High School. Police say she walked her normal route toward home and sent several text messages.

Officials plan to release new information at a press conference on Friday morning.

There is a $20,000 reward for any information that leads to the safe return of Abigail or to information that leads to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in her disappearance. 

The FBI has said that tips continue to come into its tips line, 1-800-CALL-FBI.
