The adoptive parents of "Baby Veronica" are in Oklahoma this morning, and will hold a press conference to update their efforts to bring their daughter back to South Carolina.

Matt and Melanie Capobianco flew to Oklahoma Tuesday night, and will be joined by a nationally recognized adoption reunion facilitator at the 11 a.m.

Veronica's biological father, Dusten Brown, is wanted in Charleston County on custodial interference charges, but Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin refused to force the extradition of Brown, despite South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley signing a warrant.

It is unclear what steps the Capobiancos can legally take in Oklahoma force Brown to hand Veronica over to them.

When he missed the first visitation, sheriff's deputies obtained a warrant for his arrest and a Charleston judge ordered him to turn over the child "immediately".

Monday morning Brown surrendered to Oklahoma law enforcement and was released on bond less than an hour later.

Monday night Gov. Haley's spokesman said, "She stands in support of the Capobiancos and shares their desire to bring Veronica home safely."
