The Onslow County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced Saturday that an arrest has been made in the disappearance of 3-year-old Mariah Woods. He is also charged with second-degree burglary, felony larceny and possession of stolen property, authorities said.

The sheriff's office says based on evidence they recovered in the investigation, they believe the little girl is deceased.

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.

People with surveillance footage near where a 3-year-old girl disappeared in eastern North Carolina are being urged to call police and share the video as they investigate the girl's death.

Though the girl's body has not been found, ongoing searches for her have now turned into a recovery process.

Kimrey is now being held at the Onslow County Detention Center under a $1,010,000 bond.

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

"We all hope and pray to find her alive, but it is still extremely important we find her".

Since then, professional investigators and volunteers have fanned out across the woods near her home, neighbors have been asked to search their property and a dive team has searched a portion of Southwest Creek under U.S. Highway 17.

The FBI, which was also at the news conference, said that two areas in Pender County were now part of the focus of the search. "All with one mission: to help us find Mariah". She has been missing from her home since Monday. They added that additional charges could be filed against Kimrey.

'Someone just walked right up in there, grabbed the 3-year-old out of the bed and she didn't cry, she didn't scream? Authorities said they have been using all means necessary to find Mariah including ground searches assist by a helicopter and K9 units - so far, officials have covered 100 acres.
