Conway, NH Lawyers representing the New Hampshire teenager who returned home nine months after she vanished on the way home from school say she "suffered numerous acts of unspeakable violence."

They put out a statement Tuesday on behalf of Abigail Hernandez and her mother. It was featured on the "Bring Abby Home" website created after the 14-year-old disappeared Oct. 9 on her way home from school.

Now 15, she's alive and home with her family "through her faith, fortitude and resilience," the statement says.

The statement asks that people be sensitive to Abigail's well-being and "give her the time and space she needs" to heal.

She came home July 20, but the circumstances of her return are just as murky as the details of her disappearance. Police charged 34-year-old Nathaniel Kibby with kidnapping her.
