She has blondish-brown hair and blue eyes.

Authorities say the abductor is unknown at this time and traveling in an unknown direction. Woods lives with her mother and her mother's live-in boyfriend on Dawson Cabin Road in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Miller said crews have searched hundreds of acres in Onslow County by foot, by air, and with canines. Authorities have blocked off a southbound lane on U.S. 17 while crews conduct their search. Right now, we are asking you search the areas around your own homes for any clues to find Mariah.

The FBI released this photo of Mariah Woods, who was reporting missing on November 27, 2017. Those items were transported directly to their labs by an Osprey aircraft.

Sheriff Hans Miller said his officers are 'working everything that can be worked to find this little girl'. Please have your IDs ready. "We are not releasing it to the public at this point", Miller said.

"It is extraordinarily rare for a stranger abduction, someone to come into a residence simply for the sole motivation of taking an infant child", said retired FBI agent Greg Baker, who is not involved in the investigation into Mariah's disappearance.

Mariah Kay Woods has been missing since Sunday night when her mother put her to bed.

The search for the girl continued Wednesday afternoon. "Just bring her home please safe and sound". The next day, around 6 a.m., the child was missing.

Mariah's father, Alex Woods, who does not live with her mother, has expressed skepticism about the circumstances surrounding his daughter's disappearance.

He called his fiance to find out if the news he heard was true. "She's my baby, she's my everything", she said.

Woods said it is hard to describe how he is feeling.

The authorities showed up at his work shortly after he reached out to ask questions. "Daddy loves you, baby".

The FBI said a tip led law enforcement to obtain an image of an adult and child that was captured at about 9:30 a.m. Monday morning in the Walmart. "This ain't true. I mean, really", he said. "She was sent to me for a reason". The Onslow Countyt Sheriff's Office says they become aware of the surveillance images after getting information from the community.

The FBI also released a missing poster that will be featured on all FBI social media sites.

A number of agencies, including the FBI, are assisting Miller's office in the investigation. Woods has two other children, young boys, but calls Mariah her "angel" because the pregnancy came after she got her tubes tied, obviously making it an unexpected pregnancy. "Possible, but no", Alex Woods said.

The local Crime Stoppers program is offering a cash reward of up to $2,500 for information deemed "of value or assistance" in the search.

Woods was last seen when her mother put her to bed at about 11 p.m. Sunday, according to the Charlotte Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Investigators in hazmat suits were searching under homes in the mobile home mark, the Star News reported.

Long told the station she was frustrated that this "may have gotten the hopes of the family up".
