A South Carolina couple in the middle of a custody dispute over a little girl known as 'baby' Veronica released a new statement on Thursday.
"As legal discussions between our attorneys continue regarding physical custody of our daughter, we have not yet seen her nor have we been informed of her whereabouts. Although we have not personally heard from Dusten, we plan to continue pursuing the option of facilitation aside from ongoing legal actions. We are extremely grateful for Governor Fallin's concern regarding this matter and remain hopeful that we will see Veronica today."
The couple came to Oklahoma in hopes of facilitating an end to a several years long battle over the custody of Veronica. A South Carolina court ruled in favor of the Capobiancos, but her biological father, Dusten Brown, has filed suit in Oklahoma and Tribal courts challenging the adoption.
On Wednesday, Governor Mary Fallin said if Brown did not work with the Capobiancos to find a solution to the battle she would speed up the process to send him to South Carolina on a warrant for custodial interference.
