The body was found Saturday evening in Pender County in a creek by a dive team, Shelley Lynch, with the FBI in Charlotte, said.

Officials said a dive team member found the little girl’s body around 5:30 p.m. on Saturday in waters in a remote part of Pender County near an abandoned home.

Earl Kimrey, boyfriend of the toddler’s mother Kristy Woods, reported the child missing Monday morning after putting her to bed in their Jacksonville mobil home the previous night.

Pender County is just south of Onslow County, where the toddler went missing after her mother put her to bed Sunday.

The prosecutor charged Kimrey Saturday with concealing of death, obstruction of justice, second-degree burglary, felon larceny and possession of stolen property, authorities said earlier.

Hours after his arrest the baby’s body was found.

Woods told the police and the media that Mariah was snatched from the home, but Mariah Wood’s biological father Alex Woods refused to believe it

Woods, the child’s father,  told WECT, “I don’t feel that she just walked out the house. I mean she’s three years old, you gonna wake up and go to the door at, you know, 2, 3, 4, whatever time in the morning they said she left and you’re gonna walk outside in the cold and dark and just walk? Possible, but no.’

He also stated, “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? Nobody heard anything? Four people in the house, two adults and two kids. Someone just comes up and snatches the baby and walks out?”

Additional charges and cause of death are pending. Kimrey is held on a $1.01 million bond.
