CHARLESTON, South Carolina -

South Carolina is dropping its hunt for Dusten Brown.

The Green Country father was fighting his extradition to South Carolina on custodial interference charges, related to the adoption of his daughter, Veronica.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley said she'll stop pursuing Brown's extradition, but he could still face charges if he ever sets foot in the state.

Four-year-old Veronica is now with her adoptive parents, Matt and Melanie Capobianco, who live in South Carolina.

Cherokee Nation Attorney General Todd Hembree released this statement Wednesday afternoon:

"We are pleased that Governor Haley has withdrawn her request for extradition and see this as a step in the right direction for all involved."
