AMBER Alert issued for missing 3-year-old girl

Sheriff: Search underway for missing 3-year-old girl in Jacksonville

The search continues on day three for missing North Carolina 3-year-old Mariah Woods.

A dive team was called in Wednesday afternoon to help aid in the search for missing 3-year-old Mariah Woods.

Police are asking the neighbors in this rural area to check their yards, sheds and properties for any sign of the toddler, who is about 2 feet and 9 inches tall and weighs 30 pounds. "She could be anywhere, she's very sweet, very loving girl, long brown hair and blue eyes, goes by Mariah".

Three-year-old Mariah Woods vanished in the middle of the night from her home in North Carolina. Her biological father Alex Woods told WCTI 12 Tuesday that he found out his daughter was missing when the Amber Alert was issued and he hasn't seen her for about a year.

Mariah's grandmother, Anne Edwards, said that the preschooler wears braces on her legs, suggesting that she would probably not make it far on her own.

Authorities are interviewing the family, and they are using a helicopter and drone to search for the girl.

Woods said she last observed her little girl at around 11 p.m. Sunday. "She's my baby. She's my everything". Woods said. "Nobody heard anything?" "Just bring her home please safe and sound".

The family also said Mariah would not have left with a stranger.

The girl's two older brothers were in the house when Mariah disappeared.

"Mariah's mother describes her as their "little angel", with a goofy, outgoing and talkative personality".
