Mother's boyfriend is arrested in connection to disappearance of 3-year-old Mariah Woods and police believe she is dead

Federal Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Shelley Lynch confirmed in an email Saturday that 32-year-old Earl Kimrey was living with 3-year-old Mariah Woods and her family when she disappeared almost a week ago.

Investigators have charged him with concealing death, obstruction of justice and other charges.

Kristy Woods made tearful pleas for her daughter's return.

Investigators believe that Mariah is deceased due to evidence gathered throughout the investigation.

"It does not appear that they are related to this case, but they will be collected and turned over to investigative teams for further review so that we are 100 percent certain", he added.

The searches will now shift to a recovery process.

Syria 'intercepts Israeli missiles' outside Damascus
The British broadcaster commissioned a series of satellite pictures that showed widespread construction at the site. Syrian media reported Saturday that the "Israeli enemy fired missiles at an army base outside Damascus".

He's being held in the Onslow County Detention Center under a $1,010,000 bond.

Earlier this week, Mariah's biological father, who has not seen her for more than a year, said he did not believe she was abducted. 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.

The arrest warrant issued for Kimrey said he 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".

Miller said authorities will look at anything found and decide whether they need to look in another area. "We have got to bring her home", Onslow County Sheriff Hans Miller said at a Saturday news conference. She said her boyfriend saw the child at about midnight when she got up and he told her to go back to bed. Additional charges are pending. She has been missing from her home since Monday.

FBI Special Agent-in-Charge Stanley Meador said authorities spent days searching by foot, boat and in the water for any leads.

'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? "Nobody heard anything? Four people in the house, two adults and two kids someone just comes up and snatches the baby and walks out?"
