— The disappearance of a Granville County woman has turned into a custody battle.

Kelly Morris, 28, disappeared from her Stem home on Sept. 3, and her family has filed for emergency custody of her youngest child, Haley. The 5-year-old lives with Morris' husband, Scott Morris, who authorities have called a person of interest in his wife's disappearance.

Scott Morris didn't appear in court Monday for a short hearing in the custody case.
