JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Local law enforcement has stepped up the search for a North Carolina girl after she disappeared from her home.
A statewide Amber Alert has been issued for Mariah.
Kristy Woods told WITN-TV in Greenville that she last saw Mariah around 11 p.m. Sunday when she checked on her. She said her boyfriend saw the toddler around midnight when she got up and he told her to go back to bed. Once they realized she was missing, the couple called authorities.
The home is just west of Jacksonville and Marine Corps Air Station New River.
