Mariah Kay Woods was last seen on Sunday, November 26 at 2405 Lot 7 Dawson Cabin Road in Jacksonville, North Carolina at 11:30 p.m.in bed at her home.

"[Officials are] working everything that can be worked to find this little girl", said Jacksonville Sheriff Hans Miller. Miller said authorities "will not rule out any situation that may have occurred". Officials have combed through hundreds of acres by foot, air and with K-9 units, Sheriff Miller said. She called him back and said it was, so he called authorities. 'Just to be able to touch her and hold her and not let her go again.

Authorities said Wednesday morning that photos released after midnight from a WalMart in Morehead City DO NOT show the missing 3-year-old North Carolina girl who's the subject of an AMBER Alert.

Local law enforcement has already conducted a search behind the Woods' home and the surrounding areas, WCTI reported.

Long told the station she was frustrated that this "may have gotten the hopes of the family up". "This is my everything, besides my boys, the love that I have for this girl".

When asked if Woods' disappearance was an isolated incident, or if there may be a danger to other area children, Miller said officials think "this is a focused incident".

Mariah's biological father, Alex Woods, told WCTI-TV his daughter's disappearance was "a nightmare". 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?

Woods was last seen when her mother put her to bed at about 11 p.m. Sunday, according to the Charlotte Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Dive teams have been searching Southwest Creek in Onslow County, Meador said, which is about 3 miles away from where the family lives.

The girl's two older brothers were in the house when Mariah disappeared.

Woods, who said he only found out his daughter was missing when the Amber Alert went out, told WCTI that he had been given custody of the young girl and her brothers a year ago while child protective services investigated an incident involving their mother, but that he had not seen the children since.

Kristy Woods pleaded for her daughter's safe return Monday. Hence, the sheriff's office, which has joined the FBI Child Abduction Rapid Deployment in search for Mariah, has reached out to the public for assistance in determining whether the toddler in the pictures is Mariah and for any information that can help them identify the woman, carrying the kid.
