Abigail was last seen leaving her home in Harlingen, Texas on June 16, 2007. She has never been heard from again. She left her residence with her 16-year-old boyfriend, Ruben Torres, and has never been heard from again. A photograph of Ruben is posted below this case summary. He later stated he dropped Abigail off at a street corner near her home. Her loved ones did not believe she would have run away and stated that even if she had, she would have worn something other than slippers and would have taken extra clothing. All of Abigail's personal belongings were left behind when she vanished. Her parents knew she was seeing Ruben and had consented to their relationship, as had Ruben's parents.
In August 2007, Ruben was charged with capital murder in Abigail's case. He was arrested when he made a court appearance for other, unrelated charges that were brought against him before Abigail went missing. Authorities stated Abigail was a witness in a juvenile felony case against Ruben. The murder charge was dropped for lack of evidence several months later, but Ruben remained incarcerated for other crimes until March 2009. In August 2015, eight years after his initial arrest, Ruben was charged with Abigail's murder a second time. He is awaiting trial. Because of his age at the time Abigail disappeared, he has been charged as a juvenile, and the prosecutor's office will have to petition to have him tried as an adult.
Abigail may still be in the south Texas area. Foul play is suspected in her disappearance due to the circumstances involved.
