FBI Increases The Urgency in Search For Missing NC 3-Year-Old

Two days ago, an Amber Alert was issued in North Carolina for an abducted 3-year-old girl, and now the FBI has stepped in to heighten the alert, saying that “every second counts”.

Mariah Kay Woods first went missing since Sunday night after her mother put her to bed. She lives with her mother and her mother’s boyfriend at 2405 Dawson Cabin Rd., Jacksonville NC.

Mariah is about 2 feet 9 inches tall, weighs 30 pounds, and has brown hair, and blue eyes.

Yesterday, the FBI released new photos of what they say could be Mariah with an unknown woman, taken by a Walmart surveillance camera in Morehead City around 9:30 a.m. Monday;

Authorities are now trying to determine who the woman in the picture is, and if the child is in fact, Mariah. In yesterday’s press release, the FBI stressed the fact that “No information is too small or insignificant when looking for a missing child.”

If you have any information regarding who is in the Walmart photos, or any possible clues about Mariah’s whereabouts, please call the Onslow County Sheriff immediately at (910) 455-3113, or 911

Please help spread the word!
