The girl's home is in the southeastern part of the state, just west of Jacksonville and Marine Corps Air Station New River.

Once they realized Mariah was missing, Woods and her live-in boyfriend called authorities.

Details remained scarce as Miller updated the media Wednesday afternoon, as the search stretched into its third day.

The FBI has joined the search, including the Child Abduction Rapid Deployment team. Base officials say almost 100 Marines from various units across Camp Lejeune and New River are helping search for the missing girl.

If the child in the photo is identified beyond doubt to be Mariah, the woman accompanying her could be a potential suspect, since Mariah reportedly went missing after 11 p.m. EST Sunday, which is when her mother put her to bed, according to ABC affiliate Eyewitness News.

Wednesday, 10 a.m. - The sheriff's office says the photos released are not of Woods. "She's my baby, she's my everything", she said. Jetta Long said she doesn't know Mariah's family, but said she is frustrated that the surveillance photos "may have gotten the hopes of the family up".

When questioned about the adults in Mariah's life, Sheriff Miller said that "we've talked to them, they've talked to us", but would not elaborate further.

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


"Every second counts when a child is missing", Onslow County Sheriff Hans Miller said.

She says she calls Mariah "an angel" because she unexpectedly got pregnant with her after she got her tubes tied.

Three people were arrested Tuesday in connection with a heroin distribution investigation, according the Nash County Sheriff's Office. "In that effort to bring her back we would not rule out any possible situations that may have occurred".

Kristy Woods on Tuesday issued an emotional plea for the girl's return. Officials have conducted 100 interviews, followed more than 140 leads and had the assistance of more than 225 investigators working around the clock.

Tuesday, 3:30 p.m. - A news conference is held between the Onslow County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Woods said he cooperated and gave as much information as he could.

Anyone with information on Mariah's disappearance are being asked to call the Onslow County Sheriff at 910-455-3113 or 911 locally.
