(CNN)-Authorities have found the body of Mariah Woods, a 3-year-old eastern North Carolina girl missing since Sunday, the FBI said Saturday.

The body was found Saturday evening in Shelter Creek in Pender County by a dive team, Shelley Lynch, with the FBI in Charlotte, said.
  
Pender County is just south of Onslow County, where Mariah went missing after her mother put her to bed Sunday.
The mother's live-in boyfriend was charged Saturday in connection with her disappearance, authorities said earlier.
Earl Kimrey, 32, was being held on more than $1 million bond at the Onslow County Detention Center following his arrest for concealing a death, obstruction of justice and other charges, the Onslow County Sheriff's Office said.
Kimrey was described by authorities as the live-in boyfriend of the girl's mother, who reported Mariah missing Monday morning after putting her to bed in their Jacksonville home the previous night.
