Missing 3-Year-Old Is Believed to Be Dead, Police Say

"It is believed that Mariah is deceased", the Onslow County Sheriff's Office said in a statement, even as what happened to Mariah Woods after her mother tucked her into bed almost a week ago remains a mystery. Kimrey is Mariah's mother's boyfriend, according to multiple media reports.

Kimrey, who was in the Onslow County Detention Center on a $1 million bond, faces charges of concealing a death, obstruction of justice, second-degree burglary, larceny and possession of stolen property.

Kimrey is now being held in the Onslow County Detention Center with bail set at $1,010,000.

According to another local station, the district attorney's office has been consulted on the current charges and additional charges could be pending as the investigation continues.

In a statement issued just before 2:30 a.m. on Saturday, the sheriff's office said that information gathered in the search for Mariah led authorities to believe she is dead, although no body has been recovered.

On Friday morning, hundreds of volunteers organized a search party to look for the girl, ABC 11 reported.

At some point in the five hours between then, she said someone abducted the child - who has a walking impediment - from her bedroom.

Kimrey lived with Mariah and her mother in Jacksonville.

Searchers targeted a creek and a landfill in their effort to find a 3-year-old North Carolina girl missing since the start of the week.

On Thursday, Miller called on civilians to join law enforcement officers in the land and air search for the toddler.

North Carolina investigators believe a three-year-old girl, who went missing last week, is dead.

'Nobody heard anything? Four people in the house, two adults and two kids, someone just comes up and snatches the baby and walks out?', Alex Woods said. "She's my baby, she's my everything", said Kristy Woods in a press conference. "Just bring her home, please, safe and sound".

Residents were moved to action following Woods' public appeals for help in the search for her "very sweet, loving girl" with blue eyes and long brown hair.

"The focus of this investigation has changed from a missing child to homicide case", Meador added.
