Federal Bureau of Investigation joins search for missing 3-year-old in North Carolina

CHILD STILL MISSING INVESTIGATION & SEARCH CONTINUES AMBER ALERT 3-YEAR OLD NORTH CAROLINA GIRL ABDUCTED AND MISSING

Mariah was last seen by her mother's boyfriend late Sunday night and was reported missing Monday morning.

"[Officials are] working everything that can be worked to find this little girl", said Jacksonville Sheriff Hans Miller. "It's entirely premature to try to determine what happened".

"If anybody knows where she is at or any information, just please call the sheriff's department or notify anybody", Woods told reporters through tears. She called him back and said it was, so he called authorities. I just want her safely returned.

Authorities are still searching for the missing 3-year-old girl from Onslow County, North Carolina that prompted an Amber Alert on Monday.

Mariah stands at approximately 2 feet, 9 inches tall, and weighs 30 pounds.

Scores of officers and K-9 units combed the area, and helicopters and a drone buzzed overhead as the search stretched into a third day.

Mariah's grandmother Anne Edwards said the child wears braces on her legs and would probably not make it far on her own. Jetta Long said she doesn't know Mariah's family, but said she is frustrated that the surveillance photos "may have gotten the hopes of the family up". "This is my everything, besides my boys, the love that I have for this girl".

She says the last time she saw her daughter was around 11:00 p.m. Sunday when she went to check on her.

Nicer Tree, Cheaper Price Owner Jay Wisshack says, "If you like a really nice selection, probably earlier would be better". The National Christmas Tree Association says there should be enough trees for everyone who wants one to get one.

Law enforcement officials also searched the home and the family's auto for evidence.

She called the sheriff's office around 6 a.m. Monday to report her missing. Woods said he is also the father of the child's two brothers, who were in the home when the girl disappeared.

Miller said his office is attempting to have an Amber Alert issued for the girl.

They say they found some items of interest in the woods behind the home, but are unsure if it's connected to the girl's disappearance yet. In addition to many state and local resources, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has brought in the Child Abduction Rapid Deployment or CARD team.

Kristy Woods on Tuesday issued an emotional plea for the girl's return.

In a Facebook post, the Onslow County Sheriff's Office said they have sufficient resources for continued searches but did ask callers to contact the Sheriff's Office at 910-989-4070 with any information.

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.
