FBI expands surveillance request for abducted NC teen

- The FBI and other police agencies are continuing their search to find a 13-year-old girl kidnapped from a North Carolina mobile home park.

The FBI said Monday marks two weeks since Hania Noelia Aguilar was taken outside her home in Lumberton. 

"We are at a critical phase in our investigation and need the public’s help. Many times over the past few weeks, we have asked for anyone in Lumberton or surrounding Robeson County with surveillance video to call us. Unfortunately, many have not contacted us, even when FBI Special Agents left business cards and reward flyers asking for a call-back," the FBI explained.

Special Agents are again asking the public for their video surveillance. 

"We are desperately trying to locate additional footage of the stolen SUV to determine when and how it got to Quincey Drive where it was found on November 8," the FBI said. 

The FBI is expanding their plea for video to all of Robeson County, NC specifically:

  • Highway 41/Elizabethtown Road
  • Any side streets
  • Popes Crossing Road
  • Wire Grass Road
  •  Lovett Road.

Over the weekend, agents conducted searches on foot and used drones as part of the search for Aguilar. Relatives said the eighth-grader went outside to start a relative's SUV to prepare to leave for the bus stop. Police said a man then forced her into an SUV and drove off.

Authorities said the SUV was later found in Lumberton, several miles from the mobile home park. The FBI has increased its reward for information that leads to Aguilar to $25,000.

Anyone with further information on Aguilar's disappearance or has surveillance video if asked to call the Tip Line number at (910) 272-5871.
