The mother of a teenager missing more than a week has one message for her daughter: Stay strong.

Zenya Hernandez spoke Thursday, the same day the FBI announced a $20,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of anybody who may have had a role in 15-year-old Abigail Hernandez' disappearance.

Abigail was last seen leaving Kennett High School at 2:30 p.m. last Wednesday. Police now say she never made it home.

Despite the reward, police continue to say they have no evidence to suggest anything suspicious and are treating this like a missing person's case.

Zenya Hernandez appeared stronger than she did on Saturday when she spoke to reporters on her daughter's 15th birthday.

Wearing a T-shirt with "Bring Abby Home" on it, she told Abigail "don't give up."
