After 19 months of fighting to get their adopted daughter back, Matt and Melanie Capobianco came to Oklahoma to bring their daughter home.
Looking exhausted, Melanie Capobianco told reporters she is saddened by the fact that so many have been hurt by this situation, but that they are ready to restore their family.
"When Matt said we were going to Oklahoma, I was excited about the very thought of seeing Veronica and possibly even bringing her home," she said.
But, she said her heart was shattered when their requests to see Veronica where shunned.
"As soon as we arrived, we requested a visit with our daughter. As a mother my heart broke when our request was denied," she said.
Right now, the Capobiancos say they don't know where Veronica is and with each passing day they lose another day with their daughter.
"People have wondered why after 19 months we chose to come to Oklahoma and it's simple. It's time for this to be over," said Matt Capobianco.
FOX23 asked if they had been offered a joint custody agreement by Veronica's biological father, Dusten Brown.
"We are still trying to work those things out with our attorneys," said Melanie.
"We certainly do want the Browns involved in her life and of course her native heritage to hopefully have them involved and learning about that," said Matt.
The couple said they are open to a swift solution with Brown and the Cherokee Nation.
"If there is going to be some thoughtful solution that continues to involve all who love her, this is the time,” said Matt.
