The Onslow County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have arrested a man in connection with the disappearance of 3-year-old Mariah Woods. He is charged with concealing of death, obstruction, second-degree burglary, felony larceny and possession of stolen property.

The sheriff's office says the search for Mariah is now a recovery process.

Woods was reported missing Monday morning.

Her mother told investigators that she last saw Mariah late Sunday night.

Onslow County deputies say they have not found Mariah Woods' body and will continue to search the eastern North Carolina woods with hundreds of volunteers.

Kimrey is being held on a more than one million dollar bond.

The United Nations envoy to Yemen, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed, and the ICRC urged the parties to avoid targeting civilians. However, the Houthis were less open to Mr Saleh's idea.

Onslow County Sheriff Hans Miller talked during a news conference about Mariah Woods, who vanished November 27 from her home on High Hill Road. 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 warrant states that 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".

"We all hope and pray to find her alive, but it is still extremely important we find her". We have got to find her. The warrant also says that Kimrey "secretly disposed of the dead child's body".

The FBI asked for any business or residents near U.S. Highway 17 or state Highway 53 in the area where the girl disappeared to call police and let them see the footage. Additional charges are pending. "We have got to bring her home", Miller said.
