Retrieving Target Node Information in NodeDropped Event

I have a TreeView bound to JSON data.  In the nodeDropped event I can retrieve the data for the node being dropped (args.droppedElementData) but cannot find the data for the drop target node.  The targetElementData object contains information about the parent of the drop target, and the dropTarget object doesn't appear to contain the JSON data for the node.

The attached html file can be used to see this behavior in the console.  To reproduce, drag the level 2 node and drop on the level 1 node; the targetElementData object will reference the parent.  If the level 2 node is dropped on the level 0 node, the targetElementData object is empty.

How can I retrieve the node data for the drop target node when using drag and drop in the treeview?

Thank you,
Randy Craven
