Sheriff: Photos from Walmart are not missing girl Mariah

The desperate search to find missing 3-year-old is continuing as over 200 agents cover every acre of Onslow County, N.C.

ONSLOW COUNTY, N.C. -- The Onslow County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday morning that surveillance photos circulated in the search for Mariah Kay Woods are not the missing girl.

"We will use every possible means to bring her home," WRAL reported the sheriff said. "Every second counts when a child is missing. No piece of information is too small or insignificant."

The FBI released the photos overnight. Authorities asked the public for help identifying the woman and child. The photos were captured by a Walmart surveillance camera in Morehead City around 9:30 a.m. Monday. 

An FBI spokesman said Wednesday that detectives have conducted well over 100 interviews when asked if they had established any suspects in Mariah's disappearance. 

"At this time, priority number one is to find Mariah and we are taking every lead very seriously," he said.
