OAK RIDGE (WATE) -- Oak Ridge police are searching for a teenage girl they believe was forced into a car Monday by a man charged with aggravated kidnapping.
Police say Yeni Cecelia Deleon, 16, was abducted by Noel Esparsa Lopez, 20.
Police say Deleon was getting a CD from Lopez in the parking lot of her apartment complex on Purdue Avenue around 5:45 p.m. when he forced her into his car.
Children playing kickball nearby tried to help the girl, but police say Noel pushed them away.
Family members say Deleon and Lopez had been friends for about a month.
Lopez is believed to be driving a mid-90s tan Lexus four-door. He is from San Antonio and may be on his way there.
If you have any information about this case, call Oak Ridge police at (865)-425-4399.
