Amber Alert Issued for Missing 7-Year Old

Posted:

GERONIMO, OK -- An update to the Amber Alert out of Oklahoma.  A man and the seven year old girl he allegedly kidnapped near Lawton have been spotted in Texas.  KTEN's Chris Severy has the details. 

Early Monday evening, somebody reported seeing Lester Hobbs and Aja Johnson in Brady, TX.  That is about 150-miles west of Waco.  Here's what police think happened.  Sometime on Saturday, Aja's mother, Tonya Hobbs, took Aja and a 13-year old daughter in her RV to visit her estranged husband, Lester Hobbs, in Geronimo, which is just south of Lawton.  By Sunday, Aja's mom was dead.  Lester is a person of interest in her death.  And he had disappeared with Aja.  The other daughter was not harmed and is staying with relatives.  Lester Hobbs is not Aja's biological father.  J. J. Johnson is.  Monday, he made a tearful plea for her return.  Johnson said, "I need my little girl back.  She's missing.  I love her dearly, and she needs her medication. Please, Lester, if you're listening or anyone out there who knows where she is, please return her."  Hobbs might be driving a 1992 white Toyota Paseo.  That's a small 2-door hatchback-type car.  And the hatchback window has been replaced with some sheet-metal.  If you have any information, call authorities immediately.  Authorities think they might be headed for Rockport, TX, which is near Corpus Christi.
