Federal Bureau of Investigation makes arrest in disappearance of 3-year-old NC girl

Earl Kimrey

Authorities in North Carolina say they have arrested a suspect in connection with the disappearance of 3-year-old Mariah Woods, a girl whom they believe is probably dead.

Anyone with any information should contact the Onslow County Sheriff's Office at 910-455-3113 or Crime Stoppers at 910-938-3273.

Deputies took Earl Kimrey, 32, into custody Friday night, as the search continued for Kristy Woods' daughter.

Earl Kimrey, 32, believed to be the boyfriend of the child's mother, was apprehended Friday, the Onslow County Sheriff's Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation announced early Saturday.

The warrant released Saturday on a charge of concealing a death against 32-year-old Earl Kimrey did not say how investigators think she died.

The arrest warrants for Kimrey obtained by WGHP show that he is accused of stealing two dressers from a home on High Hill Road around the time of Mariah's disappearance, between 11 p.m. Sunday and 3 a.m. Monday.

"The searches will now shift to a recovery process", deputies said of the more than 700 volunteers that poured into the county along the North Carolina coast about 120 miles (193 kilometers) southeast of Raleigh, searching woods, outbuildings and anyplace else for the girl.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Stanley Meador on Saturday asked businesses or residents who live on U.S. Highway 17 or state Highway 53 in Onslow and Pender counties to call police if they have surveillance cameras.

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

More than 150 volunteers from 29 states spent 1,600 hours over the holiday weekend decking the White House halls. A Nativity scene has been on display since 1967, including during the term of President Obama.

"We put every resource we have into finding Mariah, to bring her home safely", he told reporters.

The arrest warrant said Kimrey obstructed justice by "removing Mariah Woods' body from the scene of her death, and did hide (the) death and body, knowing that (she) died from unnatural causes". The FBI also joined the search for Mariah.

Kimrey's attorney, Walter Paramore, did not immediately return a call for comment. She said her boyfriend saw the child at about midnight when she got up and he told her to go back to bed.

She called the sheriff's office around 6 a.m. Monday to report her missing, and an Amber Alert was issued that day. Meador said they also sifted through roughly 95,000 pounds of trash by hand for evidence, and some "items of interest" were sent to the Marine Corps Base at Quantico for testing.

Residents were moved to action following Woods' public appeals for help in the search for her "very sweet, loving girl" with blue eyes and long brown hair.

'I love her. I'll do anything that I can, whatever you want. "This is my world, this is my angel", she said. "She's my baby. She's my everything".

Kimrey is charged with Concealing of Death, Obstruction of Justice, 2nd Degree Burglary, Felony Larceny and Possession of Stolen Property.
