Lumberton police believe they have identified the body of missing 13-year-old Hania Aguilar, who has been missing for 3 weeks. Her body was found around 4:45 p.m. in a body of water off Wire Grass Road, according to Chief Michael McNeill.
The body was sent to the state crime lab in Raleigh for identification and an autopsy, which has since been performed.
Aguilar was grabbed by a man from a yard in the Rosewood Mobile Home Park on November 5th and put her into the stolen SUV, which was later found in Lumberton several miles from the mobile home park. She was then forced into a stolen Green 2002 Ford Expedition registered to Velasquez Hernandez of Summerville in South Carolina, police said. The Green car was last seen leaving the mobile home park. Witnesses say the suspect had a yellow bandana over his face.
