The man charged in the death of 3-year-old Mariah Woods was in court for the first time Monday morning. Kimrey, who is Mariah's mom's live-in boyfriend, has not yet been charged with killing the 3-year-old.

Woods said when she woke up, Mariah was missing.

After five days of the community coming together to search, Investigators say they believe they have found Woods body Saturday night.

Family members told NBC affiliate WRAL that Kimrey lived in the home with Mariah and her mother. Investigators were looking for "anything that could offer information to help us find Mariah", said Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Stanley Meador in a news conference Friday afternoon.

"Allow us to review it to determine if it is of investigative value", FBI agent Stanley Meador said.

"It does not appear that they are related to this case, but they will be collected and turned over to investigative teams for further review so that we are 100 percent certain", he added.

Kimrey is being charged with concealing of death, obstruction of justice, second-degree burglary, felony larceny, and possession of stolen property.

He allegedly "failed to notify a law enforcement authority of the death of Mariah Woods, and secretly disposed of the dead child's body", according to the arrest warrant. He didn't have any questions for the judge and his defense attorney didn't even ask for his bond to be lowered.

Kristy Woods told police she last saw her daughter at about 11 p.m. November 26.

The FBI was analyzing items recovered during the search, which included sorting through 95,000 pounds of trash from a landfill, authorities said.

A 24-year-old Canadian woman may lose her eye after her eyeball tattoo left her almost blind.

"I'll do anything that I can, whatever you want", said Woods, according to WNCN. "It's about her. Justice for her and bringing her back home". "She's my baby. She's my everything". The warrant accuses him of breaking into a home on High Hill Road in Jacksonville sometime after 11 p.m. on Sunday and 3:30 a.m. on Monday and taking two dressers.
