(Newser) – A total reward of $20,000 is being offered in the case of a 13-year-old girl kidnapped from a North Carolina mobile home park, per the AP. Gov. Roy Cooper's office is offering $5,000 for information that leads to Hania Noelia Aguilar, while the FBI is offering $15,000. Relatives say the eighth-grader went outside last week to start a relative's SUV to prepare to leave for the bus stop. Police say a man then forced her into an SUV and drove off. The SUV was found in Lumberton on Thursday, several miles from the mobile home park, and Police Chief Michael McNeill has asked nearby residents to check their property for anything unusual. Authorities have released new photos of Hania, notes CNN. (Another 13-year-old, Jayme Closs, remains missing in Wisconsin.)
