ONSLOW COUNTY, N.C. -- In a 911 call released Friday, Adolphus Earl Kimrey II can be heard calmly telling an emergency operator that Mariah Woods had disappeared.
In the call from November 2017, Kimrey expresses disbelieve and concern for the missing 3-year-old.
Woods' body was found less than a week later near Shelter Creek along Shaw Highway in Pender County.
Kimrey is now on trial for the murder of Mariah, and is facing the death penalty.
Warrants also released Friday show that authorities thought there was probable cause to search the home as well as a vehicle on the property.
Kimrey was arrested before Mariah's body was found. Authorities at the time reported that they had enough evidence to conclude that she was dead and to accuse Kimrey of concealing her death and whereabouts.
The murder trial for Kimrey is expected to continue next week.
