Missing girls found safe with father in Hernando custody case


Missing kids found safe with father

Two young girls, missing since being picked up by their father on the Fourth of July, were found unharmed Sunday.

Olivia Brooks, 2, and Raven Brooks, 9 months, along with their father, Aaron David Brooks, 31, were found around Brooksville about 10:30 a.m. Sunday, according to the Hernando County Sheriff's Office.

Aaron Brooks was arrested on charges of interference with child custody and grand theft of a motor vehicle, but the Sheriff's Office did not disclose details. He was being held in lieu of $4,000 bail.

Brooks picked up his children at 11:30 a.m. Thursday and was expected to return them later that day, but didn't. One of them requires regular medication.

Sunday, the girls and their father "were found to be in good health," the Sheriff's Office said.
