  • Mother's boyfriend is arrested in connection to disappearance of 3-year-old Mariah Woods and police believe she is 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.

Her disappearance prompted a widespread search, with law enforcement, the military and volunteers from the community looking for the child after her mother's plea for her safe return.

Miller said authorities will look at anything found and decide whether they need to look in another area.

Onslow County Sheriff Hans Miller said at a news conference that deputies are just as determined to bring the girl home as they were when it was still possible she was alive.

The FBI said because of evidence gathered, it believes that Mariah is dead but no body has been recovered.

Kimrey is being charged with concealing of death, obstruction of justice, second-degree burglary, felony larceny and possession of stolen property.

She claimed he saw her at 1am and told her to go back to bed.

Kimrey lived with Mariah and her mother in Jacksonville.

Kimrey removed the girl's body from the place where she died and knew her death was not natural, according to arrest warrants.

The FBI also joined the search for Mariah.

He's being held in the Onslow County Detention Center under a $1,010,000 bond. Deputies did not release any details on how she may have died.

Woods was reported missing Monday.

"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.

The FBI says they have been sending "items of interest" to their lab in Quantico, Virginia, for priority testing in the case. "All with one mission: to help us find Mariah".

Kristy, who this week disabled her Facebook account after posting the missing person's appeal for her daughter, claimed that Mariah was taken by a stranger.

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

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