Authorities said Wednesday morning that photos released after midnight from a WalMart in Morehead City do not show the missing 3-year-old North Carolina girl who's the subject of an AMBER Alert.
The father of the missing 3-year-old girl from Onslow County spoke with NewsChannel 12 reporters this morning. Mariah has brown hair and blue eyes.
Mariah Kay Woods was last seen at her home in Jacksonville, N.C., after her mother, Kristy Woods, put her to bed on Sunday night.
An Amber Alert was issued early Monday and the Federal Bureau of Investigation has now joined the search, ABC reports.
Kristy Woods, Mariah's mother, is pleading for her daughter to be returned safely. Woods said her daughter wears leg braces to help her walk, meaning she would have been unlikely to wander off alone.
"She's a sweet youngster, however she is modest with outsiders, so she wouldn't simply run with a more odd", Edwards said.

Eric Trump tweeted on Tuesday what appeared to be a comparison of President Trump calling Sen. Warren's claim of having Native American heritage.
The FBI says they're continuing interviews and asking for anyone for a contact with the family on Sunday or Monday to call the Sheriff's Office.
A family friend told 9 On Your Side the girl has an orthopedic leg problem, so when she walks her left leg is thrown around and causes her to wobble. Woods said. "Nobody heard anything?"
"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.
Family companion Anne Edwards revealed to NBC offshoot WRAL that it would be odd for Mariah to go out so effectively.
Ms Woods said her daughter was a "little angel" with a talkative personality.
Wrongdoing Stoppers in Onslow County is putting forth a $2,500 remunerate for data that prompts finding the little child.
