The search for Mariah Woods, a missing 3-year-old in Onslow County, North Carolina, continued Tuesday with an army of volunteers and the FBI searching for the girl.

An Amber Alert was issued just before noon Monday for Mariah Kay Woods, who was last seen Sunday night, The Associated Press reported. She is white, about 2 feet, 9 inches tall and 30 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes.

Mariah's mother said she put the child to bed at their home in Jacksonville, North Carolina, on Sunday night and called the sheriff's office around 6 a.m. Monday to report her missing.

Woods said she last saw her daughter at about 11 p.m. Sunday and her boyfriend last saw the toddler at about midnight, when she woke up and he told her to go back to bed.

During a news conference on Tuesday afternoon, Sheriff Hans Miller said that crews were working tirelessly to find Mariah.

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

Miller also reiterated the important role the public plays in the search. He asked that anyone who has had contact with Mariah's family since Sunday to please call his office.

Rebecca Crooks helped in the search on Tuesday. She said she does not know the family but felt compelled to help.

"We have little kids, and it is a small community, so it is what you do," she said. "Personally, I would be a hot mess, but we let (the family) know there is a huge community here."

Investigators were searching the woods near the family's home and some property within the borders of Camp Lejeune.

Anyone with information about Mariah is asked to call the Onslow County Sheriff's Office 910-455-3113 or call 911.
