Search continues for missing girl in North Carolina

The FBI said in a news release Wednesday that the woman and child in the photos have nothing to do with the case of the missing girl. Woods lives with her mother and her mother's live-in boyfriend in Jacksonville, North Carolina.

The family also said Mariah would not have left with a stranger. Volunteers should wear appropriate clothing and bring their own water and snacks. If anyone finds something suspicious, they should contact the Onslow County Sheriff's Office.

Thursday morning - A dive team was called in to search a creek along US 17.

The latest: * FBI Lab in Quantico, VA is testing items of interest * Search volunteers arrived at Dawson Community Church Friday morning * Search focused exclusively on Onslow County but officials are following up on all tips The search is being organized by Team Adam, a program for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children that provides on-site assistance to law enforcement agencies and families in cases of missing children, according to Onslow County Sheriff Hans Miller. The pictures were taken around 9:30 a.m. on Monday. Woods said he is also the father of the child's two brothers, who were in the home when the girl disappeared.

The FBI shared images overnight from a Morehead City Walmart of a woman and child who appeared to be about the size and description of Mariah. Miller said authorities "will not rule out any situation that may have occurred". 225 investigators and agents from 14 local, state and federal agencies have conducted almost 100 interviews and followed more than 140 leads, he said. We wanted to show them that this community can come together in prayer. An FBI spokesman assures the public finding Woods is 'priority number 1'.

"More than 225 investigators, agents and other law enforcement employees are working around the clock with one goal in mind", Onslow County Sheriff Hans Miller said.

No piece of information is too small or insignificant.

Local and federal authorities have been tight-lipped on details of the investigation.

Tuesday afternoon - The FBI releases an official "missing persons" poster for Woods.

The North Carolina Department of Public Safety issued an Amber Alert on Monday for a missing 3-year-old from Onslow County.

Woods, who said he has been involved in custody issues with Kristy Woods, his ex-wife, and has not seen the child in about a year, said he doesn't believe her explanation of what happened.

Woods has been described as a white female about 2 feet, 9 inches tall, weighing 30 pounds.

On Thursday, search crews turned their attention towards a creek along United States 17 about three miles from Mariah's home on Dawson Cabin Road in Jacksonville where she was last seen.
