An Amber Alert has been issued in North Carolina after a Lumberton teenager was grabbed by a man from her front yard on Nov. 5 and forced into a stolen vehicle.

Officials said Hania Noelia Aguilar was abducted by an unknown male wearing a yellow bandana around his face outside of her home at Rosewood Mobile Home Park on East Town Road.

She was grabbed just before 7 a.m., and an Amber Alert was issued three hours later.

The pair was last seen traveling on Elizabethtown Road in Lumberton in a green 2002 Ford Expedition, with the South Carolina license plate NWS 984, officials said in the Amber Alert.

Aguilar is described as a 13-year-old Hispanic female with long black hair, brown eyes, and braces, standing 5’0″ and weighing 126 pounds.

She was last seen wearing a blue shirt with flowers and blue jeans.

“Witnesses can’t describe the suspect other than he had a yellow bandanna over his face. After grabbing the child he forced her into the Green Ford Expedition and stole it and drove away,” Lumberton Police Department Capt. Terry Parker said in a news release obtained by WPDE.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Lumberton Police Department immediately at 910-671-3845 or call 911.
