In the summer of 1984, Abel, while traveling through Crystal Lake, finds a mutilated eyeball and other body parts. Taking this to be a message, Abel takes the eye and sometime later falls asleep in the middle of the road.
Abel was eventually found and woken up by Chris Higgins and her friends, who nearly run him over. Thanking them for waking him, Abel reveals the eye he had found to the group, disgusting them. As Abel begins to shout about how Chris and her friends should go back from whence they came, Chris's group run back to their van and drive off, leaving Abel yelling about how they are doomed if they continue onward. He's one of the first 2 doomsayers in the film series (along with Creighton Duke) to not be killed/murdered by Jason Voorhees.
