A Tuscaloosa mother is asking your help to find her missing daughter.
Laura Hill desperately wants her 13-year-old daughter Jovana to be found safe and she's been busy posting flyers around town. The family is now offering a $3,000 reward for anyone who can help find Jovana.
Hill says her daughter left home in the Sahama Village Community willingly April 27. Investigators believe Jovana may be with 24-year-old Evarado Ramirez, who is wanted in an unrelated case for rape and sodomy.
Hill says Jovana and Ramirez are not in any kind of relationship. Hill believes Ramirez lured Jovana out of the house. Hill says she was wearing pajamas, no shoes and left her wallet behind with $82 inside. She says Jovana had just purchased a lot of new clothes the day she left home.
Jovana is described as bi-racial, a mix of Hispanic and white. She has brown hair, brown eyes and is 5'2" and 120 lbs.
Ramirez is described as a Hispanic man with black hair, brown eyes, 5'1" tall and 150 pounds. Ramirez drives a white Mitsubishi Eclipse.
