The Onslow County Sheriff's Office and Federal Bureau of Investigation revealed on Saturday evening that Mariah Woods' body was recovered by a Fayetteville Police dive team in Shelter Creek in Pender County, ABC News has confirmed.

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.

Ernie Lee, the Onslow County District Attorney, added,"It's been a very hard week, it's been a trying week, it's been a challenging week".

Earlier this week, Miller asked members of the community who were willing to comb through hard terrain to meet at the Dawson Community Church Friday morning.

Meanwhile, in Jacksonville, the memorial for Mariah Woods grows and a community reaches out to one another.

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

The man accused of withholding information from North Carolina law enforcement about the death of his girlfriend's young daughter said nothing about the case in court.




Kimery has also been charged with obstruction of justice, second-degree burglary, larceny and possession of stolen property. People gathered in prayer for hours Saturday night.

"I'll do anything that I can, whatever you want", said Woods, according to WNCN.

Another little girl showed up with her family to place a tiara on the sign, because "Mariah looked like a princess" in the pictures shared with the news. "We just have to hold onto our kids and watch over them".

Police have not yet said how Mariah died.

"I've seen her out and about a little bit, I mean running around like a happy little girl", he said.

Authorities said further charges are possible.

"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.
