(BOSTON) — The mother of missing New Hampshire teenager Abigail Hernandez talks to her daughter often in her house and has moments of relief when she sees the girl in her sleep.

But when Zenya Hernandez awakes, she returns to the nightmare that began when her daughter vanished two months ago.

Zenya Hernandez told ABC News that she looks forward to sleep.

“I see Abby in my sleep sometimes and it’s really good…I don’t want to wake up then I wake up and I’m like this is a nightmare,” Hernandez told ABC News. “A lot of people say I’m living like the worse thing a parent can live through which is very hard,” Hernandez said. “But I’m relieved every day that we don’t have bad news…that is the good news that we do not have bad news.”

It was two months ago that Abby Hernandez vanished from the picturesque New Hampshire town of North Conway.

Her mother spoke to ABC News in an exclusive interview just days after the FBI announced they were very concerned about Abby’s safety and had not ruled out that the teen could have been snatched.

The FBI also revealed last week that Abigail sent a letter to her mother after she disappeared.

According to authorities, Abby went to school on Oct. 9, went home and then vanished. Her cell phone pinged off a tower atop Mount Cranmore ski resort around 3:30 p.m. that afternoon, but has been untraceable since.

Zenya Hernandez says she talks to her daughter in the house, forgetting for just a second the void that her absence has left, a void that even the family’s pet Pugs are feeling.

The FBI asked anyone with information about the case to contact the FBI’s toll free tip line at 800-CALL-FBI, Conway police at 603-356-5717, their local FBI office, or the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.
