Oklahoma authorities have released new photos in the case of missing 7-year-old, Aja Johnson. The photos show the little girl and the man accused of kidnapping her, Lester Hobbs. He is also accused of murdering his wife, Aja's mother, Tonya Hobbs.

Police believe Hobbs has been on the run with Aja for over a month, but have no evidence that he has harmed her.

On Thursday, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation Agent in Charge Richard Goss, said at a news conference that Hobbs enjoys playing pool at local bars, trolls the Internet for lonely women, and changes his hair color frequently.

According to Goss, Hobbs is also a self-taught mechanic and has worked in small garages for money.
“He’s been described as a cowardly abuser who only confronts people of a lesser stature than himself,” said Goss.

Deputy U.S. Marshal A.D. Templeton described Hobbs as “…a scavenger moving from point to point… traveling at night, just like a coyote.”

Hobbs has two distinctive tattoos including the word “ROSE” on his right hand and the word “LOVE” on his left hand. His nose has been broken, thus it is crooked.

KOCO reports that Hobbs threatened to kill his wife and children in the past with a hammer.

“It now appears that Lester Hobbs carried out that threat and actually used a hammer to kill his own wife. Very possibly, Aja lay on the sofa next to him,” said Goss.

Aja is 4-feet tall, with brown eyes and brown hair and weighs about 65 pounds.

Lester Hobbs is 6-foot-1 and weighs about 190 pounds. He has green eyes, brown hair, and multiple tattoos, including wings on his chest and the word "Tony" on his left forearm. He was last seen driving a white 1995 Toyota Paseo with Oklahoma license plate 577-BPW. Reports indicate the rear window may be broken out and the vehicle is missing hubcaps.

Anyone with information should call the U.S. Marshals Service in Oklahoma City at (405) 231-4206.

Where is Lester Hobbs?  How does he just disappear?  No sightings?  I think that I heard of one in TX.  This is so sad.  I grew up in Coweta, Oklahoma (18 years).  I pray that little Aja is found and I pray that she is unharmed.  What a sad sad story.

(Bolded by me)

Here's an article that talks about how and why  hard it might be to find Lester Hobbs:

http://newsok.com/agents-say-aja-johnsons-suspected-abductor-can-survive-on-little-money-and-food/article/3442219?custom_click=headlines_widget

<snip>
Goss revealed for the first time that investigators think Tonya was beaten to death with a hammer and that Aja likely witnessed the killing "lying by her mother's side on a sofa."

Goss said his team has not received one concrete lead on Aja, Lester Hobbs or Tonya Hobbs' white 1992 Toyota Paseo, which they think Lester Hobbs was driving when he left the RV.

"Hobbs can survive on very little money 20 bucks here; 20 bucks there," Goss said. "In fact, his needs seem to be met with only cigarettes, liquor, and very little food. He is a self-taught automobile mechanic and will offer to do minor repairs for little money. He has worked in the past in small automotive garages and as a mechanic in service stations.

"He likes to cruise the Internet searching for lonely women," Goss said. "If Hobbs no longer has a vehicle, he will travel across the country by bus, or will hitchhike."

Investigators said Hobbs likes to change his appearance with the use of hair dyes and hair growth, but there are two physical characteristics he can't easily hide: Tattoos and a broken nose. Hobbs has the word "ROSE" tattooed across the top of the fingers of his right hand and "LOVE" tattooed across the top of the fingers of his left hand.

I forgot my manners.  Welcome to Scared Monkeys, labubske.      I keep checking for any news about Aja, and like you, I pray she will be found and that she is unharmed.  But after what I've read about Lester, I'm really afraid for her.

Alleged Murderer's Family Pleads For Release of Aja Johnson

Featured Video  Family Members of Lester Hobbs Call Him Violent, Abusive


Lester Hobbs is wanted for the murder of Tonya Hobbs and kidnapping her 7-year-old daughter Aja Johnson.

Hobbs family is pleading for the safe return of Aja.By Colleen Chen, NEWS 9

GERONIMO, Oklahoma -- The family of Lester Hobbs is pleading for him to let 7-year-old Aja Johnson go.

Investigators believe Lester Hobbs took the girl after killing her mother in January. Tonya Hobbs was found dead by her sister-in-law Mildred Anderson.

"It was horrifying. We had tried for hours to get in touch with Tonya and Lester after the car had been missing for several hours. We kept calling cell phones and got the voicemail. We then realized the phone was ringing from inside the camper. When I stepped in, all I saw was an arm and a hand sticking out," Anderson said.

Lester's brother Buck said he was horrified but not surprised when he found out about Tonya's death.

"He's a very violent man. He had made threats to kill her many times. I don't think he's been with one woman he hasn't been," Buck Hobbs said.

Buck said he wants his brother brought to justice, but more importantly he wants Aja Johnson to get home safely.

"I pray for her every night. I pray that she's OK. I can't imagine what she's been going through," he said.

The siblings of Lester Hobbs said they've been repeatedly questioned by the OSBI, but are adamant they have no information on Lester's whereabouts.

"If I knew anything, authorities would get the first phone call. Anytime we think of anything that might help, we call them. We've left messages in the middle of the night," Anderson said.

The family said they have worried that neither Aja or Lester are still alive but are trying to stay positive.

"I don't think we'll ever see Lester again. He's too afraid of prison to turn himself in, but we want him to give up the little girl," Buck said.

Buck said he has a message directly for his brother Lester.

"Please let that little girl go. All she's ever done is love you. She does not deserve anything she could be going through right now," Buck said.

Another sibling, Betty Smith, said she has a message for the rest of America.

"Somebody out there has had to see that car or has had to seen him. Lord help them if they have and let them come forward," Smith said.

With as close as this RV is to Lester's sister's home, it's hard to believe that no one saw or heard a dang thing..... IMO

NORMAN, Oklahoma -- Authorities have a confirmed they have found a car in rural Norman connected to a man wanted for murder and kidnapping.

A white Toyota Paseo with Oklahoma license plate number 577-BPW was found at Southeast 108th Street and Highway 9 in Norman. The car matched the description of a car authorities said they believed Lester Hobbs was driving after murdering his estranged wife, Tonya Hobbs, in January and kidnapping her 7-year-old daughter Aja Johnson.

Police said they found the car after receiving a tip from an unknown person.

SkyNEWS 9 HD Pilot Mason Dunn said the car looked as though it had been at the location for quite some time. He also said there appeared to be a possible body outside the car and possible another inside the car.

NEWS 9 spoke with Aja's father at his Oklahoma City home. J.J. Johnson arrived home around 4:30 p.m. and said he had not heard anything from authorities.

When NEWS 9 updated J.J. Johnson on what crews were able to see at the scene, he became visibly upset.
