The State of Oklahoma Canceled the Amber Alert after the suspect vehicle was located in a heavily wooded area north west of Norman Monday afternoon (03-29). The body of a child was found in the vehicle and the body of an adult was found outside the vehicle. Positive identification has yet to be established but police say there is no reason to believe the bodies are not the child and the suspect.

The State of Oklahoma issued the Amber Alert Monday morning (1-25) after the girl was reportedly abducted by the suspect from her home in Geronimo late Sunday. The girl's mother was found dead in the home and the suspect is wanted for questioning in the woman's homicide. The suspect should be considered dangerous. Monday afternoon (01-25) the State of Texas also issued the Amber Alert at the request of Oklahoma.

Texas canceled the Amber Alert on Friday (01-29) due to a lack of information regarding the suspect and victim being in Texas. The Amber Alert remained in effect in Oklahoma.

Aja Johnson, a white female, 8 years old, 4', 65 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. She has a very thin build.

The suspect is Lester Hobbs, a white male, 47 years old, 5'9", 180 pounds with green eyes.

The suspect vehicle is a 1992 white Toyota Paseo with Oklahoma tag number 577BPW. The back window has been replaced with a piece of sheet metal.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Comanche County Sheriff's Office at 580-353-4280 or dial 911.
