LUMBERTON, NC ( WBTW) – Investigators say the car connected to the kidnapping of a Robeson County teen was spotted in Lumberton on a surveillance camera. 

The FBI and the Lumberton Police Department have been analyzing video since 13-year-old Hania Aguilar was abducted Monday morning. A press release from the FBI says the image of the car was captured near Hania’s home just minutes after the kidnapping. Police are asking anyone in the area with a camera to hand off their footage to investigators. 

Hania was outside a home in the Rosewood Mobile Home Park off of Elizabethtown Road around 7 a.m. Monday when a male wearing a yellow bandana forced her into a relative’s car parked in the driveway. The SUV investigators are looking for is a green 2002/ 2003 Ford Expedition with SC license plate NWS-984. The paint on the hood is peeling and there is a Clemson sticker on the rear window.

Hania is a Hispanic female, 5 feet tall, weighing approximately 126 pounds.  She has black hair, and brown eyes.  She was last seen wearing a blue shirt with flowers and blue jeans. 

Anyone in the Lumberton area who has a camera or surveillance system is asked to save the video and contact the tipline at 910-272-5871.

“Even if you do not see the vehicle in your video, please call the tip line anyway, as it may still contain important information,” the FBI stated in a press release.

A briefing on the cases is scheduled for 3:30p.m. Wednesday at the Lumberton Police Department. You can stream the press conference live on the WBTW News13 Facebook page.
