She may be in the company of a male. She may be traveling in a 2003 green Ford Expedition, with South Carolina license plates NWS984, as shown. The paint on the hood of the vehicle is peeling and there is a Clemson University sticker on the rear window. Hania was last seen wearing a blue shirt with flowers and blue jeans.
An Amber Alert has been issued after a 13-year-old North Carolina girl was kidnapped in front of her home before school, local police said.
Eighth-grader Hania Noleia Aguilar was kidnapped just before 7 a.m. Monday at the Rosewood Mobile Home park in Lumberton, said Lumberton Police Chief Michael McNeil.
Hania grabbed her aunt’s keys so she could turn on the car ahead of going to the bus stop when a family member saw a man dressed in all black with a yellow bandanna over his face approached the teen and forced her into the car, police said.
The suspect then stole the car and drove away with her, police said.
The aunt’s stolen car is described as a green 2002 Ford Expedition with South Carolina license plate number NWS984. The car has paint peeling from the hood and a Clemson sticker on the back window, police said.
Investigators are desperate to bring her home, and are interviewing witnesses, family and friends, as well as canvasing the neighborhood, McNeil said.
There is no indication Hania was targeted, officials said.
Hania is described as a Hispanic girl who is 5 feet tall and weighs about 126 pounds, the FBI said. She has black hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing a blue shirt with flowers and blue jeans.
The FBI is offering a reward up to $15,000.
The FBI has released new pictures of a North Carolina teenager who was abducted outside her home, and it is urging people to take a close look at surveillance video it says shows a suspect.
Someone drove away with 13-year-old Hania Aguilar in an SUV that had been idling outside her Lumberton home Monday morning before school, authorities said, prompting police to issue an Amber Alert for her.The stolen SUV was found abandoned Thursday morning less than 10 miles from Hania’s home at the Rosewood Mobile Home Park, authorities said.A missing persons poster that the FBI released late this week contains more pictures of Hania than were released initially.A reward for information that leads to her has risen to $20,000, Lumberton police Chief Michael McNeill said Friday.
The FBI has asked the public to examine video it says shows a man walking near Hania’s home.It said the man, wearing light-colored shoes, a light-colored shirt, and a hoodie, was walking south on Lambert Street, then turned north on North Carolina Highway 41/Elizabethtown Highway toward the mobile home park.“Someone knows this man, and we need you to call us,” FBI supervisory resident agent Andy de la Rocha said Friday. “Maybe you recognize the way he walks, his mannerisms, or maybe he will recognize himself on TV.”“The public was critical in the recovery of the SUV. Now we need you to come through again for us. Who is the man on the video?” he asked.
