LUMBERTON, NC (WMBF) - An Amber Alert has been issued for a 13-year-old girl who was kidnapped after being forced into a vehicle Monday just before 7 a.m.

Witnesses say an unknown male grabbed Hania Noleia Aguilar, who was standing in the yard, and forced her into a green 2002 Ford Expedition that is registered to Velasquez Hernandez of Summerville, S.C.

Aguilar’s little sister, Heylin Perez, was in the house at the time and saw what happened.

“Out of nowhere the man came in and they took her away. She fell and screamed and we couldn’t hear what she told us and then we went over there and we didn’t know what happened," Perez said.

According to information from the FBI, the paint on the vehicle’s hood is peeling and there is a Clemson sticker on the rear window.

Witnesses say the vehicle was last seen leaving the mobile home park. The registration number on the plate on the truck is: SC NWS 984.

The incident happened at 6:58 a.m. between lots 38 and 39 in Rosewoods Mobile Home Park.

The report says that witnesses can‘t describe the suspect other than he had a yellow bandana over his face.

After grabbing the child, he reportedly forced her into the Green Ford Expedition, stole it and drove away.

According to a press release, investigators with the Lumberton Police Department, Robeson County Sheriff’s Office, FBI agents, and SBI agents are following nearly 50 leads.

If anyone sees the vehicle or child, they are asked to contact Sgt. Pete Locklear at the Lumberton Police Department at (910) 671-3845 immediately.
