Search continues for missing North Carolina girl

Search continues for missing North Carolina girl

The Virginia Beach Police Department retweeted an Amber Alert notification on Wednesday morning in connection to the search for a missing North Carolina child.

Mariah weighs about 30 pounds and is 2 feet 9 inches tall, authorities said. She has blondish-brown hair and blue eyes.

Three-year-old Mariah Woods vanished in the middle of the night from her home in North Carolina.

Police have spoken to the couple and searched their vehicle, but have found no sign of the missing girl, the Daily News said.

Mariah Kay Woods has been missing since Sunday night when her mother put her to bed. Woods said her daughter wears leg braces to help her walk, meaning she would have been unlikely to wander off alone.

The disappearance immediately prompted a statewide Amber Alert and authorities to search wooded areas around where the family lives, including the grounds of Camp Lejeune, the nearby Marine Corps base.

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.

Pakistan off-spinner suspended from bowling again
He served a 12-month ban starting July, 2015 after his action was found to be illegal for the second time in a two-year period. In November 2014 and June 2015, his bowling action was found to be illegal by the ICC, despite having remodelled it.


"'I'll do anything that I can, whatever you want", said Woods. "Please, bring her back".

Police have checked with the girl's biological father, and confirmed he does not have her.

According to authorities, Mariah's mother reported her daughter missing yesterday morning around 6:00 a.m. and she believes her child was abducted.

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 but are both safe.

Ms Woods said her daughter was a "little angel" with a talkative personality.
