A 34-year-old man was charged Monday with kidnapping Abigail Hernandez, the New Hampshire teen whose case has brought a national spotlight to the small mountain town of Conway, where she went missing nine months ago and was returned to her family last week.
Nathaniel E. Kibby was arrested at his home in Gorham, N.H., the state attorney general’s office said in a statement. He was scheduled to be arraigned in Conway on Tuesday afternoon.
Officials said Kibby is accused of “knowingly confining” Hernandez on Oct. 9, 2013, “with a purpose to commit an offense against her.” They did not release any further information.
Attorney General Joseph Foster said Monday that law enforcement officials have worked around the clock to determine the facts surrounding the girl’s disappearance and return. He said Hernandez told police details that led to Kibby’s arrest.
Hernandez was held in a locked storage container behind Kibby’s trailer, a neighbor and friend of the girl’s told New England Cable News.
Kibby is scheduled for arraignment Tuesday in Conway District Court. It was not immediately known if Kibby has a lawyer. Foster said he will have a media briefing after the arraignment.
