AMBER Alert issued for missing 3-year-old girl

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

A helicopter and drones were used to aide in the search.

Family members say Mariah shouldn't have been able to get far because of an orthopedic leg problem, which causes her to wobble while walking.

Tommy Cloyd, an independent living coordinator with the Disability Advocates & Resource Center, said going that long without any help, especially in the cold, could prove risky. "She's my baby, she's my everything". She wouldn't just leave the house with someone she didn't know.

If you have any information regarding this abduction, call 911 or the Onslow County Sheriff's Office immediately at 910-455-3113.

Woods has been described as a white female about 2 feet, 9 inches tall, weighing 30 pounds. "She could be anywhere, she's very sweet, very loving girl, long brown hair and blue eyes, goes by Mariah". She is three years old, please notify them.

"Our focus right now is to find her, to bring her back and then to find out what happened", Onslow County Sheriff Hans Miller said. An Amber Alert has since been issued for the little girl. Her mother told authorities she had not seen her daughter since she put her to bed Sunday night in their home in Jacksonville, according to ABC affiliate WCTI.

The child is not Mariah Woods and the woman does not have any connection to the ongoing investigation to find Mariah, they said.

Mariah's mother checked on her about 11 p.m. Sunday, she said.

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

Around 9:45 a.m. Wednesday, the Onslow County Sheriff's Office confirmed the girl was not Mariah.

Alex Woods is the biological father of Mariah Woods and her two brothers.
