“This case is a top priority,” officials say at a press conference Friday afternoon

Published

on

Officials focused their conversation on the civilian volunteer search party that is now the largest search effort in this case organized by Team Adam with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and NCIS

Sheriff Hans Miller acknowledged those volunteers and expressed his “we the people” gratitude for their willingness to help search for Mariah. 730 people total showed up to help look for missing Mariah.

Miller said the main priority right now is for them to find out where Mariah is and what happened.

Foot, horses were brought in and search boats hit the water to conduct searches for Mariah over the past few days, according to FBI officials.

Police have also used cadaver dogs and an underwater sonar to help in the search.

Items were flagged during the search but officials do not believe they are connected to Mariah’s case.

It has been confirmed that a local landfill was searched and officials sorted through 95,000 pounds of trash by hand looking for clues about Mariah’s disappearance.

Every item flagged by volunteers during today’s search will be handed over to investigators for a closer look. The FBI says this case is a top priority. Every area possible in Verona and Southwest areas will be searched thoroughly.

All leads are being followed up on and the possibility that Mariah is out of Onslow County is not being ruled out.

The search is ongoing and all resources are being used to continue searching for Mariah Woods.
