TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

The Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office is asking for help in finding a missing 13-year-old.

Jovana Hill has been missing since April 27. She is described as bi-racial, a mix of Hispanic and white. She has brown hair, brown eyes and is 5'2" and 120 lbs.

She went missing from her Tuscaloosa home at the Sahama Village trailer park around 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

Hill may be in the company of 24-year-old Everado Ramirez, a Hispanic man with black hair, brown eyes, 5'1" tall and 150 pounds. Ramirez drives a white Mitsubishi Eclipse.

The Sheriff's Office describes the pair as "companions" and says there are two felony warrants on file for Ramirez. Warrants for second degree rape and second degree sodomy were issued against him in February.

Investigators have contacted U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement because the pair could be on their way to Mexico.

"The more information we can get quickly is so important," Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Ron Abernathy said. "That's what I want to stress to the public. No matter how small that informatiom may be, please get it to us because that could be the difference in locating this child."

The sheriff's office is treating this as a runaway case, but they've also entered Jovana Hill's name in missing persons databases.

"There's a lot of information out there on where she possibly could be and who she might be with. We don't know anything in particular to her whereabouts, but we are following up every lead and we are aggressively investigating this case," Abernathy added.

Anyone with info should contact the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office (Alabama) 1-205-752-0616 or call 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) or call 911.
