The Onslow County Sheriff's Office has arrested a man in connection to the disappearance of 3-year-old Mariah Woods. Arrest warrants say Kimrey moved Mariah Woods' body from where she died, knowing her death was not natural.

The Onslow County Sheriff's Office said in a statement that Kimrey, of Jacksonville, North Carolina, was arrested late Friday on charges that include concealing a death and obstruction of justice.

32-year-old Earl Kimrey was taken into custody by investigators at the Onslow County Sheriff's Office Friday. She told police that she went to her room again Monday morning after 6 a.m., and she was gone.

Federal Bureau of Investigation officials said in a release Saturday that they have evidence to believe Mariah is deceased.

The agency is transitioning from search operations to recovery operations, officials said.

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

Mother's boyfriend is arrested in connection to disappearance of 3-year-old Mariah Woods and police believe she is dead

Earlier this week, Mariah's biological father, who has not seen her for more than a year, said he did not believe she was abducted.

The arrest warrant said Kimrey obstructed justice by "removing Mariah Woods' body from the scene of her death, and did hide (the) death and body, knowing that (she) died from unnatural causes".

The FBI, which was also at the news conference, said that two areas in Pender County were now part of the focus of the search. Deputies say her body has not been found.

Kristy, who this week disabled her Facebook account after posting the missing person's appeal for her daughter, claimed that Mariah was taken by a stranger. Additional charges are pending.

'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? ABC News reports that her mother reached out to the public in an emotion-filled plea Monday.

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