North Carolina has issued an Amber Alert for Hania Noelia Aguilar, a 13-year-old girl kidnapped from outside her Lumberton home Monday morning. Police say a man dressed all in black with a yellow bandanna over his face forced the teen into an SUV outside her home in the Rosewood mobile home park as she waited for a ride to school just before 7am, the News & Observer reports. The vehicle belonged to one of her relatives. "After grabbing the child, he forced her into the 2002 Green Ford Expedition and stole it and drove away," police told reporters Monday.

Police say Hania, who is in the eighth grade at Lumberton High School, is approximately 5 feet tall and weighs 126 pounds. She has long black hair, brown eyes, and braces and was last seen wearing blue jeans and a blue shirt with a flower pattern, Fox News reports. According to the Amber Alert, the SUV has the license plate number NWS-984. The FBI says "the paint on the hood is peeling and there is a Clemson sticker on the rear window." "Our main concern right now is to get this young lady back to her family," says Lumberton Police Chief Michael McNeil, who urges anybody who sees the girl or the vehicle to call 910-671-3845.
