A Tupelo father was reunited with his daughter Friday.

Holley M. Morris, 20, of Pontotoc turned over her 3-year-old daughter, Brooklyn Michelle Morris, to the child’s father and custodial parent, Randall L. Aaron, 27.

The exchange was agreed upon at Holley Morris’ attorney’s office in Pontotoc. Aaron was then taken to where the child was being kept, Aaron’s attorney Mark Nickels said.

Aaron, who was granted custody of the child in September, filed kidnapping charges against the child’s mother late last month.

Aaron alleged Holley Morris took the toddler Dec. 9 during a visit with the two at his Tupelo apartment.

Nickels said the case will have to continue through the court system, but Aaron does not plan to testify against the child’s mother.
