As previously reported, the man, Earl Kimrey, was the last one to see the little girl before her disappearance. Woods' mom told authorities that she had put her daughter to sleep the night before, yet hours later, her boyfriend told her he'd go check on her and see if she was okay. The next morning, Woods was missing from her bed.

"I'll do anything that I can, whatever you want, just bring her home please safe and sound," the now-deceased girl's mother, Kristy Woods said in an interview with WNCT. "She's my baby, she's my everything."

Woods' devastated father, claimed he doesn't believe his ex-wife's story. "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?" he told WCTI-TV after his daughter went missing. "Nobody heard anything? Four people in the house, two adults and two kids someone just comes up and snatches the baby and walks out?"
