Lumberton, N.C. — Authorities have issued an Amber Alert for a teenaged Lumberton girl who was taken from her home Monday morning along with her family's SUV.
According to officers with the Lumberton Police Department, Hania Noelia Aguilar was grabbed while she was standing in a yard at the Rosewood Mobile Home Park located at 3525 E. Elizabethtown Road.
Police say the man forced the girl into her family's green 2002 Ford Expedition registered to Velasquez Hernandez of Summerville, S.C. The car was seen leaving the mobile home with South Carolina license plate NWS-984.
Witnesses said the suspect had a yellow bandana over his face.
Heylin Perez, Hania's sister, said their aunt told the teen not to start the family's vehicle, but the girl did anyway.
"She just got the keys and started to turn it on," Heylin said. "And somewhere out of nowhere the man came in and took her away."
She said they heard Hania screaming during the abduction attempt.
Aguilar stands 5 feet tall and weighs 126 pounds, according to authorities. She has black hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing a blue shirt with flowers and blue jeans.
Anyone with information is asked to call Sgt. Pete Locklear at the Lumberton Police Department 910-671-3845.
