“Out of an abundance of caution, investigators have notified Hania's family, but again, no confirmation has been made of the identity of the body found,” the FBI said in a tweet.
Family members said they last saw the eighth-grader the morning of Nov. 5 when she went outside to start a relative's vehicle to prepare to leave for the bus stop. That’s when they police a man forced the girl into an SUV and drove off.
Authorities said the SUV was later found in Lumberton several miles from the mobile home park where Aguilar lived.
Investigators had been collecting and analyzing surveillance video since Aguilar was taken from her home and the FBI has followed up on more than 50 leads in the girl's abduction.
