Body found in Robeson County during search for missing 13-year-old

- A body was discovered by FBI agents in Robeson County Tuesday afternoon as they were searching for missing 13-year-old Hania Aguilar. 

The body was found off of Wire Grass Rd. around 4:45 p.m. The body has not been positively identified, but investigators with the FBI, Lumberton PD, the SBI, and the Robeson County Sheriff's Office were following leads related to the missing 13-year-old when the body was found.

Investigators have notified Hania's family, but FBI officials emphasize that no positive confirmation has been made of the identity of the body. 

Around 11:00 p.m., FBI officials said the body had been removed from the scene and was on the way to Raleigh for identification and an autopsy. There is no time frame for when a positive identification will be made. 

Hania was abducted from her home on Nov. 5, while waiting for the rest of her family to come out of their house in the Rosewood Mobile Home Park in Lumberton, authorities said. 

A witness heard her scream, looked outside, and saw a male subject dressed in all black and wearing a yellow bandana force Hania into a relative’s vehicle that was parked in the driveway.  

FBI says this is an ongoing investigation.
