Family members said Kimrey was the boyfriend of Mariah's mother and lived in the home with them; photos on Facebook show the trio together.

The sheriff's office says the search for Mariah is now a recovery process. He is charged with concealing of death, obstruction, second-degree burglary, felony larceny and possession of stolen property. Kimrey is being held on a $1,010,000 bond.

"Due to the evidence gathered during the course of the investigation, it is believed that Mariah is deceased", Onslow County authorities and the FBI said in a joint statement.

The search was organized in connection with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

Arrest warrants obtained by CBS North Carolina report Kimrey obstructed justice by, "removing Mariah Woods' body from the scene of her death and did hide Mariah Woods' death and body, knowing that Mariah Woods died from unnatural causes".
