Onslow Sheriff: Photos released this morning are not of Mariah Woods

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCN/WNCT) — 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.

Local authorities and the FBI were trying to figure out whether the child in the images is the missing girl, but the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office confirmed around 9:45 a.m. that the pictures are not of Mariah Woods and an unknown woman.

As a result, 9 On Your Side has taken down the photos provided by law enforcement.
