Amber Alert issued for 3-year-old from Onslow County


"She's three years old and goes by Mariah", said Woods. Mariah has brown hair and blue eyes. Woods has two other children, young boys, but calls Mariah her "angel" because the pregnancy came after she got her tubes tied, obviously making it an unexpected pregnancy.

She was last seen in pink and white panties.

Mariah Woods' mother made an emotional plea for her daughter's return Monday night.

A North Carolina toddler went missing from her bed after her mother tucked her in on Sunday night, The New York Daily News reported. "She's a sweet child, but she's shy with strangers".

According to the Amber Alert, Mariah Kay Woods has not been seen since approximately 11:30 p.m. Sunday in her bedroom.

Gas prices hold steady in RI, down a nickel in MA
Gas prices in the region are volatile - increasing, stabilizing and decreasing - throughout the Great Lakes and Central states. AAA Northeast reported the average price per gallon fell 5 cents over the last week, to an average of $2.48.

"'I'll do anything that I can, whatever you want", said Woods. Multiple agencies are helping a mother desperate to find her daughter and to bring her home. She said she does not know the family but felt compelled to help.

The sheriff's office has announced a reward of $2,500 (£1,800) for information leading to her safe return. She is 3 years old.

The Onslow County Sheriff said the child was taken by an unknown abductor.

Miller also told WCTI police have spoken to Woods and her live-in boyfriend. "Nobody heard anything? Four people in the house, two adults and two kids, someone just comes up and snatches the baby and walks out?"

The couple contacted the Onslow County sheriff's office early the next morning to say the girl had disappeared.
