The FBI has raised its reward for information in the case of a missing North Carolina teenager, kidnapped outside her home.
Agent Andy de la Roche told the media Tuesday the agency is raising its reward to $25,000 for information in the disappearance of 13-year-old Hania Noelia Aguilar in Lumberton. The state of North Carolina is already offering a $5,000 reward.
Relatives and police say the eighth-grader went outside on November 5th to start her aunt’s SUV when a man forced her into the vehicle. The SUV, registered in Summerville, was found three days later in Lumberton.
Lumberton Police tells News 2, the car was still registered in Summerville because Aguilar’s aunt recently moved to Lumberton and hadn’t changed her plates from SC to NC.
The FBI is looking for either information leading to the girl’s whereabouts or for information leading to the people responsible for Aguilar’s disappearance.
