JACKSONVILLE, N.C (WNCT)- The Onslow County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have made an arrest in connection with the disappearance of 3-year-old Mariah Woods.

The warrant released Saturday on a charge of concealing a death against 32-year-old Earl Kimrey did not say how investigators think she died.

Woods was reported missing Monday morning.

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.

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

Due to evidence gathered during the course of the investigation, the Sheriff's Office said it believes Mariah is deceased.

Earlier on Friday FBI forensic teams were testing "items of interest" in their desperate search for Mariah.

"We had a total of 730 volunteers help us today", Miller said. WCTI spoke with a 23-year-old Newport, North Carolina woman Wednesday who said she was the woman pictured in the surveillance photos. She claimed she had not been seen since midnight, when she checked on her, and that her boyfriend Earl was the last person to see Mariah alive. Authorities searching for the missing toddler are asking residents to comb through their properties for anything "out of the ordinary" in the hope that someone will come forward with information that leads them to the little girl. "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?" he said. Once they realized she was missing, the couple said they called authorities.

Miller said authorities will look at anything found and decide whether they need to look in another area. "She's my baby. She's my everything".

Her mom says Mariah woke up in the middle of the night and her boyfriend told her to go back to sleep.

Mariah Woods is described as a white female with brown hair and blue eyes, about 2-foot-9 weighing about 30 pounds.

The FBI estimates that 600 people turned out to join the search for a missing North Carolina child, and some had to be turned away.
