ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque police say a 6-year-old girl who was reported missing is back with her mother.

Police say the father of Arianna Lopez turned her over to police Sunday night and that police subsequently returned the girl to her mother.

Police had said previously that Abelino Lopez took Arianna Lopez from Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church on May 9. The father then surrendered to authorities but the whereabouts of the girl remained unknown.

An attorney for the mother has said a judge previously ordered the father to not have contact with the girl under he underwent a psychological evaluation.

Court records state Arianna’s mother and father filed for divorce in 2010 and have been fighting for custody over their two children ever since.

Police now plan to interview the girl.
