"If you have surveillance video taken Sunday, November 26 through Monday, November 27, 2017, from your home, business, or game hunting cameras, please call the Onslow County Sheriff's Office at (910) 555-3113", said Lynch in a press release.

The mother's live-in boyfriend was charged Saturday in connection with her disappearance, authorities said earlier.

Kristy Woods, the children's mother, knew of the sexual abuse and allegedly "failed to protect the juveniles from exposure to sexual abuse", the document alleged. This resulted in an AMBER Alert being issued hours after the report was made, which requested that persons of knowledge divulge information about the abduction to the local authorities. She was last seen alive when her mother put her to bed about 11 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 26, according to the Charlotte Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. She said items have come from all over the country and from places such as Japan and the United Kingdom. Authorities are searching for her body. "We will not discuss any details related to the homicide investigation".

Mariah's body was found on December 3 in a creek in neighboring Pender Co., N.C.

A medical examiner is expected to make the final determination if the remains found Saturday are Mariah. "We were all hoping for a better outcome".

Kimrey has not been charged with the death of Mariah. He is being held in the Onslow County Detention Center under a $1,010,000 bond.

The Onlsow County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday morning they are waiting for a forensic pathology report to determine how 3-year-old Mariah Woods died.

CBS affiliate WRAL reported the arrest warrant issued for Kimrey said 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".

Two candlelit vigils are being held in Mariah's honor this week, with the first of them having occurred Tuesday night.

A public visitation is set for Wednesday for an Onslow County toddler whose body was found this past weekend, while a memorial fund has been set up for the family. Anyone who wishes to pay their respects can do so from 4 6 the Jones Funeral Home in Jacksonville, North Carolina.
