The FBI said in a statement that the green Ford Expedition was found Thursday in the Lumberton area, about eight miles (12 kilometers) from the mobile home park where Hania Noelia Aguilar was abducted Monday.
Investigators are also seeking help in identifying a person seen on surveillance video walking near the kidnapping scene.
Relatives say the eighth-grader went outside Monday morning to start a relative's SUV to prepare to leave for the bus stop. Police say a man then forced her into the SUV and drove off.
The FBI is offering a $15,000 reward.
