ROBESON COUNTY, N.C. – Monday marks two weeks since 13-year-old Hania Aguilar was kidnapped from in front of her Lumberton home.
Two weeks later, here is what we know.
- Hania Noelia Aguilar is an eighth grader in Lumberton. She is a Hispanic female, is 5 feet tall, and weighs 126 pounds.
- On Monday, November 5 relatives say she was kidnapped while starting a car in the driveway of her home in the Rosewood Mobile Home Park, approximately 3 miles from I-95.
- She was kidnapped in a relative’s car, presumably the one she was starting in the driveway, by an unknown man who was described as wearing all black and a yellow bandana.
- Three days after the kidnapping, the SUV was located in some brush on Quincey Drive, the opposite direction of I-95 from the mobile home park.
- The day after the SUV was found, video of a man walking in the area close to the time of the kidnapping was released. Police have still not identified that man and are asking for public assistance.
- A few days later, evidence from the scene was flown by helicopter to Langley, Virginia where it went to an FBI lab.
- A week later, local law enforcement, Fort Bragg Police, and the FBI announced they were using drones and K9s in their search for Hania.
- Lumberton Police come out asking locals to search their properties looking for anything out of place that might be a clue.
- The reward for information leading to Hania’s return has increased to $30,000.
Officials are asking the public to continue sharing Hania’s photo and to look out for her while in public.
Due to the time that has passed, she could be anywhere.
If you know any information that may help bring Hania home, please call the Lumberton Police Department at 910-272-5871.
