DELTONA, Fla. — Authorities say a Florida woman has been joyfully reunited with her daughter who went missing nearly five years ago, after the girl was located with her father in Mexico.
The Volusia County Sheriff's Office said Jodie Borchert of Deltona was reunited Saturday with her 12-year-old daughter in Miami, where the girl was transported after being located in Hidalgo, Mexico.
Authorities say the child's father, 55-year-old Aaron Cox, fled with the girl in August 2009. They say Cox has been arrested and charged with interference with child custody and is being held in Miami.
It's not known whether he has an attorney.
