Federal Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Shelley Lynch confirmed in an email Saturday that 32-year-old Earl Kimrey was living with 3-year-old Mariah Woods and her family when she disappeared almost a week ago. Kimrey is Mariah's mother's boyfriend, according to multiple media reports.

Earl Kimrey, 32, was taken into custody by sheriff's investigators Friday.

The Onslow County Sheriff's Office said in a statement that Kimrey, of Jacksonville, North Carolina, was arrested late Friday on charges that include concealing a death and obstruction of justice.

Kimrey is now being held in the Onslow County Detention Center with bail set at $1,010,000.

The FBI said because of evidence gathered, it believes that Mariah is dead but no body has been recovered. The search is now shifting to recovery efforts. The search was organized by Team Adam, a program for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children that provides on-site assistance to law enforcement agencies and families in cases of missing children, according to Onslow County Sheriff Hans Miller.

Miller said authorities will look at anything found and decide whether they need to look in another area.

The girl's mother made tearful pleas for her daughter in the days after she disappeared sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning.

On Thursday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said "items of interest" were taken to Marine Corps Base Quantico, outside Washington, D.C., for testing.

Mariah's parents are divorced, and her father, Alex Woods, said that while his daughter is living with her mother, his week had been "like hell, like a nightmare". Authorities said they have been using all means necessary to find Mariah including ground searches assist by a helicopter and K9 units - so far, officials have covered 100 acres. Once they realized she was missing, the couple said they called authorities.
