Federal Bureau of Investigation joins the search for missing 3-year-old girl

Sheriff: Search underway for missing 3-year-old girl in Jacksonville Amber Alert issued for missing 3-year-old girl from Onslow County
Diane Mills | 02 December, 2017, 00:57

The FBI is now working with state and local authorities in order to locate the missing girl, according to ABC affiliate WCTI.

During a news conference on Wednesday afternoon, Miller said authorities have conduced more than 100 interviews, and have followed more than 140 leads in the search for Mariah.

"We don't know what happened", he said, according to WCTI.

Long's daughter was born with a shortened leg, so she said she could understand how her child might be mistaken for Mariah, who has difficulty walking without leg braces.

By the third day of the investigation, officials had searched under Woods' mobile home, a nearby creek, pond and wooded area, Miller said. "She's my baby, she's my everything", she said. I just want her safely returned.

Her mother said she could not find the girl on Monday morning, leading police to issue an Amber Alert bulletin. Mariah Woods is described as a white female with brown hair and blue eyes standing at roughly 2 feet 9 inches and weighing 30 pounds.

Speaking to the community, officials said the best way to help was to search familiar areas for any clues that could help law enforcement in their search.

Kristy Woods said her boyfriend saw the girl once more, at midnight, when she came out of her room and he told her to go back to bed. "This is my everything, besides my boys, the love that I have for this girl".

Mariah's father, Alex Woods, said that while his daughter is living with her mother right now, the last few days have been extremely hard.

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

When they went to check on her in the morning, she was gone. Woods said he is also the father of the child's two brothers, who were in the home when the girl disappeared.

In addition to many state and local resources, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has brought in the Child Abduction Rapid Deployment (CARD) team. "Call somebody, tell you found her. Return my baby girl, you know, please", Alex Woods pleaded.

Officials emphasized multiple times that investigative details and particulars about the case are not being disclosed at this time and they plan on having another press conference later in the day. 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.
