The New Hampshire teenager who returned home nine months after she vanished says she's "feeling a lot better every day."

Abigail Hernandez stopped by the Conway Daily Sun on Thursday to thank the newspaper for publicizing her disappearance. The Daily Sun ran a box everyday counting the number of days Abigail was missing and urging people to call police with information.

Abigail was 14 when she disappeared Oct. 9 on the way home from high school. She came home July 20. On Monday, police charged 34-year-old Nathaniel Kibby with kidnapping her.

The Daily Sun described Abigail, now 15, as composed and relaxed during the visit that also included her mother and a family friend. The paper says she declined to discuss her disappearance, saying releasing details would compromise the investigation.
