After Mariah's disappearance went public, her dad, Alex Woods, told News Channel 12 he didn't even find out his daughter was missing until he heard the Amber Alert, and he was immediately skeptical of his ex-wife's claims that Mariah may have been kidnapped.

"I'm very saddened to report to you that we have recovered what we believe are the remains of little Mariah Wood", Sheriff Hans J. Miller said. Thirty-two-year-old Earl Kimrey is the live-in boyfriend of Mariah's mother.

Arrest warrants obtained by WNCN report Kimrey, who was Wood's mom's live-in boyfriend, obstructed justice by, "removing Mariah Woods' body from the scene of her death and did hide Mariah Woods' death and body, knowing that Mariah Woods died from unnatural causes".

Earl Kmrey is accused of withholding information about Mariah Woods' death from authorities.


"It was too late to save Mariah the moment the 911 call came in", Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Stanley Meador. "She was our child", said Onslow County resident Bonnie Fuleki.

In the warrants, officials claim Kimrey "secretly disposed of the dead child's body".

More than 700 volunteers turned out Friday as the search for the missing girl shifted to the area around a creek a few miles from her home, CNN affiliate WNCN reported.

Kimrey is being charged with concealing her death but more charges could be coming. Kimrey is being held on $1,010,000 bond at the Onslow County Detention Center, CNN reported.

One warrant charges with obstruction of justice and concealing the girl's death.

Additional resources were allocated to help conduct interviews and searches for the little girl, including boats from the North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries as well as police canines and horses from neighboring agencies, Miller said.

"This investigation continues", he said. People gathered in prayer for hours Saturday night.

Mariah's father, who has been involved in a custody dispute with her mother, has criticized her version of events. Woods told WCTI-TV in New Bern earlier in the week.
