James Island couple calls for help from federal and state authorities to bring Veronica home

Posted: Updated:

The adoptive parents of three-year-old Veronica issued a statement this morning regarding the girl's biological father, and an arrest warrant issued for him.

Friday night, Charleston county deputies obtained a warrant for the arrest of Dusten Brown due to a missed custody visitation last weekend.

As of this morning, he has yet to turn himself in, which was expected to happen Sunday. All calls to the Oklahoma National Guard have gone unanswered, so we do not have confirmation on where Brown is right now, but the Cherokee Nation says Veronica is safe, and they say even with the custody battle, which is unfolding before the nation's eyes. She remains relatively unaware of the fight and maintains her health and happiness.

The adoptive parents, Matt and Melanie Capiobiancos spoke out about the arrest warrant. They said they are concerned about their daughter's safety and thy are asking state and federal authorities to intervene. matt Capiobianco says if his daughter is not returned, he will board a plane today to bring her home.

Count on News 2 for the latest in this developing story at noon, 5pm, and 6pm.
