CHARLESTON, SC -

According to the Charleston Solicitors office, a judge has issued an order to quickly transfer Veronica back to Charleston after a missed visitation on Sunday.

Read more about Veronica's story here.

Back in July a state court finalized Veronica's adoption to the Capobiancos on James Island.  The court approved a transition plan to help make this a smooth move back to Charleston for the toddler.  The visitations are meant to get Veronica reacquainted with her adoptive parents.

According to the Cherokee Nation, Dusten Brown is at a 30 day training for the Army National Guard.  They say he informed the court of the training.

Colonel Max Moss from the Oklahoma National Guard released this statement Tuesday:  "Dusten has been gone since July 22. This wasn't a two week training, just to clear that up.  Oklahoma national guard won't interject at this time into the matters involving baby Veronica and natural father, Oklahoma guardsman Dusten brown, who is attending military training out of state until August 21st. While we respect the request by judge Martin to enforce his order we believe it inappropriate for the Oklahoma national guard to take action in this matter until such time as it's been fully litigated by all parties.  There are other legal mechanisms available to the state of South Carolina to enforce the court order that have nothing to do with the national guard or specialist brown military service."

An attorney for the Capobiancos would not confirm whether that meant that the transition plan will completely change.

Attorneys for Brown have until 9:30 Tuesday morning to surrender all knowledge of where he is located.  The order was also sent to the Army National Guard where Brown is a guardsmen.
