Authorities issue AMBER Alert for missing 3-year-old girl

The FBI says a 3-year-old girl reported missing earlier this week is not the girl seen in a photograph in a Walmart in North Carolina. Woods has two other children, young boys, but calls Mariah her "angel" because the pregnancy came after she got her tubes tied, obviously making it an unexpected pregnancy.

Long told the station she is frustrated that the photos "may have gotten the hopes of the family up". Her disappearance Monday prompted an Amber Alert that has gained national attention.

Tuesday morning - The FBI's Child Abduction Rapid Deployment team joins the search for Woods.

Overnight Wednesday - The FBI and Onslow County Sheriff's Office release photos from a Morehead City Walmart of an adult and child asking for help in determining whether the child is Mariah.

Mariah's father, Alex Woods, said that while his daughter is living with her mother right now, the last few days have been extremely hard.

"I didn't think it was real", Woods told Grace. She was last seen wearing white and pink panties, according to the alert.

The mother of a missing 3-year-old girl made an emotional plea following the little girl's disappearance Sunday night. Woods Tuesday. "Nobody heard anything? Call somebody, tell you found her. Return my baby girl, you know, please", Alex Woods pleaded.

Family members said the girl has an orthopedic leg problem, so when she walks her left leg is thrown around and causes her to wobble. Federal Bureau of Investigation officials said they've received 140 tips so far and have conducted hundreds of interviews since her disappearance.

"She wouldn't have her support, her braces and things of that nature", said Cloyd.

WRAL in North Carolina said law enforcement leaders confirmed the photos did not show Mariah.

A number of agencies, including the FBI, are assisting Miller's office in the investigation.

"No information is too small or insignificant when looking for a missing child", Miller said.

"If somebody has her please, you now, bring her back, you know. Our minds our open, our ears are open, and our eyes are open".

As the search for Mariah continues, many around the community are turning to prayer. 225 investigators and agents from 14 local, state and federal agencies have conducted almost 100 interviews and followed more than 140 leads, he said. They're requesting people aid in the search for Mariah by simply checking their properties. "We have spoken to many of them, but not everyone".
