Bandana-Wearing Stranger Kidnaps 13-Year-Old Girl Waiting For Ride To School
Police say the man forced Hania Noleia Aguilar into a green Ford Explorer stolen at the scene.
LUMBERTON, NC — Authorities issued an AMBER Alert and are searching for a 13-year-old girl who they say an unidentified man snatched from outside her home.
According to the Lumberton Police Department, Hania Noleia Aguilar was in the front yard of her family’s trailer at the Rosewood Mobile Home Park shortly before 7 A.M. on November 5. The eighth-grader had taken her aunt’s keys and went outside to start a green 2002 Ford Expedition and wait for her ride to the school bus stop.
The stranger, wearing all black clothing and a yellow bandana to hide his face, grabbed the five-foot-tall, 126-pound teen, forced her into the SUV belonging to her relative, and sped off in the vehicle stolen at the scene.
The FBI noted that the Explorer has a South Carolina plate with the tag NWS 984, peeling paint on the hood, and a Clemson sticker in the rear window.
Aguilar, who is Hispanic, has black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing blue jeans and a blue shirt with flowers.
"I want for him to remember that he is a son, he has a mother, probably sisters," family member Maria Bonilla told ABC11. "For him to have a heart. To put his hand on his heart and think about his family if someone would take his mother, sisters, or a member of his own family. That's all."
“Our main concern right now is to get this young lady back to her family,” said Police Chief Michael McNeill.
Anyone who sees Aguilar or the stolen vehicle should contact 911.
