Police in Albuquerque say a man has safely surrendered his daughter.
Investigators believe Abelino Lopez hid seven-year-old Arianna with family in Roswell. However, police did not find her when they checked a home there.
Authorities claim Lopez took her from church earlier this month.
Police say he does not have custody of her and cannot have any contact with her.
Lopez and his wife remain locked in a custody battle.
KOAT-TV reports him telling police he took his daughter because he worried for her safety.
Arianna has now returned to her mother.
