Missing 3-year-old's body found in North Carolina creek, suspect held on $1 million bond
Onslow County Hans Miller said dive teams found Mariah Woods' body around 5:30 p.m. Saturday.
FBI spokeswoman Shelley Lynch said in a statement the body was in a Pender County creek about 25 miles from Mariah Woods' home in Jacksonville.
Miller didn't release any other details at a news conference.
Deputies have charged 32-year-old Earl Kimrey with concealing a death. Arrest warrants say Kimrey moved Mariah's body from where she died, knowing her death was not natural. They haven't said how they think the girl was killed.
Kimrey was living with the girl's mother.
His bond is set at $1 million.
