JACKSONVILLE, NC – The FBI has joined the search for Mariah Kay Woods, the 3-year-old girl who has been missing since Sunday night.

Kristy Woods said she last saw her daughter at about 11 p.m. Sunday night. Her live-in boyfriend saw her an hour later when he checked in on her after she woke up and he told her to go back to sleep.

When Woods went to check on the her the next morning, the girl was not in her room. She called authorities at around 6 a.m. after being unable to find her.

Since then, federal agents have joined K-9 units and helicopters to search the wooded areas near the family’s rural home, as well the grounds of Camp Lejeune.

The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office believe the girl was abducted and have issued a statewide alert asking for people to be on the lookout for the girl.

She’s described as having blond hair and blue eyes and weighing about 30 pounds. Her grandmother added that she usually walks with orthopedic braces.

Authorities are asking anyone with any information, no matter how seemingly insignificant, to call 910-455-3113.

“If anybody knows where she is at or any information, just please call the sheriff’s department or notify anybody,” said Kristy Woods. “She is very sweet loving girl.”

Mariah’s biological father, who has not seen his daughter in a year, expressed his doubts regarding an abduction scenario.

“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?” Alex Woods said. “Nobody heard anything? Four people in the house, two adults and two kids, someone just comes up and snatches the baby and walks out?”

While it’s possible someone walked in and took her (we’ve reported on similar incidents), my jaded ass has reported on too many stories of little girls who go missing over the last decade. When they include “live-in boyfriend” they usually never have happy-endings.

I’ll keep my fingers crossed regardless, and hope she simply wandered off and they find her in the woods.
