Authorities searching for 13-year-old Hania Noelia Aguilar who has been missing since the beginning of this month in North Carolina have found a body in the area off Wire Grass Road in Robeson County.

The body was found Tuesday afternoon and have not yet been identified. The remains were sent to the state crime lab for identification and autopsy, according to FBI.

Hania was abducted outside her home in Lumberton while she was taking keys to her aunt before school. A man dressed in all black with a yellow bandanna over his face forced her to an SUV and drove away. Three days later, the SUV was found several miles away from her home.

Investigators are still trying to find the kidnapper as a reward for information leading to Hania rose to $30,000 last week.
