Authorities arrested a North Carolina man in connection to the disappearance of his girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter.

The Onslow County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation took 32-year-old Earl Kimrey into custody on Friday.

According to search warrants obtained by the Jacksonville Daily News, Kimrey is accused of "removing Mariah Woods body from the scene of the her death, and did hide Mariah Woods death and body". Kimrey was taken before a state magistrate and charged with: Concealing of death; obstruction of justice, second-degree burglary, felony larceny and possession of stolen property.

The Onslow County Sheriff's Office says 32-year-old Earl Kimrey is being held on more than $1 million bond in the Onslow County Detention Center on charges that include concealing a death and obstruction of justice. "The searches will now shift to a recovery process", the Federal Bureau of Investigation said. Mariah has been missing since Sunday night when her mother put her to bed. Jetta Long revealed that her daughter was born with a shortened leg, so she said she understood how her little girl could have been mistaken for the missing toddler.

Kristy called police to report her missing on Monday at 6am.

The district attorney said additional charges could be pending. The warrant also says that Kimrey "secretly disposed of the dead child's body".

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.

As the search for Mariah intensified, questions swirled about the story told by Mariah's caretakers. Among them are the FBI's Child Abduction Rapid Deployment team and Team Adam from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

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 girl is shy and has an orthopedic leg problem, her grandmother said, according to CBS News.

The FBI says they have been sending "items of interest" to their lab in Quantico, Virginia, for priority testing in the case.
