Monday, Abigail's family asked for people with contacts in the New York and New Jersey area to spread the word to be on the lookout for the 17-year-old. The request was posted on the Facebook page dedicated to the search for her.
Abigail's parents, Lance and Rachel Bonner, said the teen went on a church choir trip to New York in March. It's unclear if that trip has any connection with the recent information that the teen could be in that area.
"Either someone she's with or someone she comes into contact with will lead her the right way, have her communicate back with us, we would hope for that," Lance Bonner said.
Abigail's parents said Monday that they are praying for the safe return of their daughter.
"She was not depressed, she seemed content," Rachel Bonner said.
A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for credible information leading to the safe return of Abigail.
The Madison Police Department took computers to look for electronic forensic evidence pointing to her possible location.
Electronic billboards are also being run with her picture in the metro.
Abigail is a white female, about 5'6" and weights approximately 125 pounds. She has medium length brown hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information on Abigail's whereabouts is asked to contact the Madison Police Department at (601) 856-6111 or Crime Stoppers at (601) 355-TIPS.
