Abigail was last seen watching TV by her roommate before her roommate went to sleep. She wasn’t discovered missing until about 7a.m Friday morning.
“Her roommate said she thought at some point Abigail opened and closed the door, but there would be no way to know if that was Abi or if it was somebody else,” her mother Heather said. “We haven’t seen or heard from her since.”
Toeneboehn is an “avid equestrian” and lives in Austell to train three to five days a week there. She’s from Lee County, Alabama.
Police say Toeneboehn’s disappearance is suspicious. Her keys, wallet, cellphone and personal items were left behind. Toeneboehn’s car was left on the property.
They are unsure if she left on her own and believe she may have left to meet someone.
Friday, the 26th, the property and surrounding areas were searched by canine units. East Alabama law enforcement agencies are also searching for her.

“The local police department has been outstanding. They got her on the missing persons list immediately,” Heather said. “There are search groups already organized looking for her, and people all throughout this area, nationwide and also in the Lee County area.”
Abigail currently attends Southern Union State Community College in Lee County, Alabama and trains horses in Austell, Georgia. According to police Abigail loves her animals and family is this behavior is not typical for her.
“It was a concern for us that she left everything behind and didn’t tell anyone where she was going or what was going on,” the police chief said. “At this time, we’re just hoping that she’s with someone and she’ll come forward when she sees the reports on the news. We’re just working it under suspicious circumstances right now. We don’t have any persons of interest, but we have a good many folks who we need to contact, and we’re just running down the list now and calling all of her friends.”
A GoFundMe has been set up to help fund the search for Abigail.
Abigail’s mother is certain she wouldn’t be gone so long with absolutely no word voluntarily.
“This would never be her choice to be gone this long,” Heather said. “There were some major happy events going on this week that she wouldn’t miss for anything in the world. We were doing something for her that she has been working toward for a very long time that was supposed to be happening right now as we speak, and she’s not here. That’s why she was in Cobb County all this week, it was leading up to me being here this morning to watch her on a new horse and there’s no way she would have voluntarily missed this, not for all the tea in China. Never.”
Abigail was last seen wearing black leggings and a long blue sleeve shirt. She is described as 5’5″ tall, 125 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.
On Sunday, February 28th, it was announced that Abigail was found safe in Alabama and had left on her own. No other information was released.
