Car Used In Lumberton Abduction Found, Girl Remains Missing

Updated 11:03 a.m.

Authorities are requesting the public’s help in finding a 13-year-old girl who was abducted Monday morning in Lumberton, North Carolina.

The FBI says Hania Noelia Aguilar was outside her home at the Rosewood Mobile Home Park just before 7 a.m., waiting for her family to come outside and drive her to school. Authorities say a witness saw a man dressed in all black wearing a yellow bandana force the girl into a stolen car that was parked in the driveway.

The vehicle used to abduct Aguilar, a green 2002 Ford Expedition, was seen on surveillance footage minutes after the girl was taken and later found Thursday morning off of Quincey Drive in Lumberton.

Aguilar remains missing.

Aguilar's mother is pleading for the community's help in finding the teenage girl. 

"I just want my daughter back with me," she said.

She also had this message for her daughter:

"I am here waiting for you, I love you and I only care about you and I don't have anything against whoever did this to you. I just want you back." 

NC Highway Patrol set up a road block canvas Tuesday morning on Elizabethtown Road, near Rosewood Mobile Home Park, in an effort to gain information from those who travel the route daily.

Authorities describe Aguilar as a 5-foot, Hispanic girl who weighs about 125 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing a blue shirt with flowers and blue jeans.

The FBI says anyone with information should call the Lumberton Police Department at 910-272-5871.
