NC Police: Missing three-year-old girl is believed to be dead

NC Police: Missing three-year-old girl is believed to be dead

The live-in boyfriend of Mariah Woods' mother has been arrested in connection to the disappearance of the 3-year-old - and police believe the child is dead.

The arrest warrant issued for Kimrey said he obstructed justice by "removing Mariah Woods' body from the scene of her death and did hide Mariah Woods' death and body, knowing that Mariah Woods died from unnatural causes".

Investigators have charged him with concealing death, obstruction of justice and other charges.

The girl's mother made tearful pleas for her daughter in the days after she disappeared sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning. She claimed she had not been seen since midnight, when she checked on her, and that her boyfriend Earl was the last person to see Mariah alive. Jetta Long revealed that her daughter was born with a shortened leg, so she said she understood how her little girl could have been mistaken for the missing toddler. The search is now a recovery effort.

He is being held on $1,010,000 bond. Deputies say her body has not been found. "We have got to bring her home", Onslow County Sheriff Hans Miller said at a Saturday news conference.

In the warrants, officials claim Kimrey "secretly disposed of the dead child's body".




The FBI was analyzing items recovered during the search, which included sorting through 95,000 pounds of trash from a landfill, authorities said.

The statement did not say if Kimrey has a lawyer.

A statement issued by the Sheriff's Office says the child, Mariah Woods, is believed to be dead.

A statement from the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Friday's initial search finished more quickly than anticipated because of the number of people who turned out. Marines based at nearby Camp Lejeune are also assisting in the search. On Thursday, Miller called on civilians to join law enforcement in the land and air search for 3-year-old Mariah Woods.

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