  • Sheriff: Search underway for missing 3-year-old girl in Jacksonville

Authorities have not released any photos of Woods yet, or said who may have taken her and where they might be headed. She has blondish-brown hair and blue eyes.

Update: The FBI announced that the surveillance images they released as a possible lead are not the 3-year-old girl at the center of the Amber Alert.

On Thursday, search crews turned their attention towards a creek along USA 17 about three miles from Mariah's home on Dawson Cabin Road in Jacksonville where she was last seen. "If you have any information to identify the adult and child in this image, please call the Onslow County Sheriff's Office at 910-455-3113". "We have spoken to many of them, but not everyone. A detailed timeline is crucial in helping us find this little girl". The child's mother, Kristy Hunter, divorced from Woods and living with boyfriend, Earl Kimrey, told authorities Mariah was in bed at around 11 p.m. the night prior.

Onslow County Sheriff Hans Miller said search crews are looking for Mariah Woods, who was reported missing sometime last night.

'This is my world, this is my angel, ' said Woods. "I think after 24 hours, it would kind of start to get to her".

Scores of officers and K-9 units combed the area, and helicopters and a drone buzzed overhead as the search stretched into a third day.

The investigation has the support of more than 14 agencies, Sheriff Miller said.

Mariah vanished from her home near Jacksonville, N.C. on Sunday.




According to WITN, the girl was last seen Monday around 6:45 a.m.at her home on Dawson Cabin Road in Jacksonville.

The girl's biological father, Alex Woods, who does not live with the child or her mother, has questioned the kidnapping story.

Family members said there was no sign of forced entry or anything wrong with Mariah's room.

Three people were arrested Tuesday in connection with a heroin distribution investigation, according the Nash County Sheriff's Office.

"It said, "3-year-old Mariah Kay Woods" and I was like, 'What?"

'We don't know what happened.

Emergency responders and investigators saw no obvious injuries when they responded to the victim's home on Sunday, the coroner said. You gonna wake up and go to the door at, you know, 2, 3, 4, whatever time in the morning they said she left and you're gonna walk outside in the cold and dark and just walk?

Suspected serial killer Howell Emanuel Donaldson III, 24, made his initial court appearance Thursday on charges of first-degree murder.
