Authorities are searching for a 3-year-old North Carolina girl last seen Sunday night.

Mariah stands at about 2 feet, 9 inches tall and weighs aorund 30 pounds. She has blonde hair and blue eyes.

She was last seen leaving 2405-7 Dawson Cabin Road, in Jacksonville.

Mariah's grandmother Anne Edwards said the child wears braces on her legs and would probably not make it far on her own.

"Someone just walked right up in there, grabbed the 3-year-old out of the bed and she didn't cry, she didn't scream?"

"Mariah's mother describes her as their "little angel", with a goofy, outgoing and talkative personality".

Authorities have not released any photos of Woods yet, or said who may have taken her and where they might be headed.
