JACKSONVILLE, Onslow County - An Onslow County dive team is continuing the search for missing 3-year-old Mariah Woods off of Highway 17 northbound this afternoon.

The team is set up over a bridge about a mile north of the Dawson Cabin Road intersection, several miles from Mariah Woods' home. There is also a wide area taped off.

Traffic is backed up due to the search. There are at least 10 Sheriff's Office vehicles and unmarked cars in the area and officers are directing traffic.

If you are traveling this way, our reporters suggest moving into the left lane as the right lanes are blocked because of the search.
