COLUMBIA — The alleged victims in a Missouri child sex abuse case told investigators that adult relatives had them pose for photos "in a sexual and provocative manner."

According to a search warrant from Columbia, the alleged victims said that when they were children adult relatives would take them to various locations and photograph them with naked men.

According to the Boone County warrant, the alleged victims told their mother about the abuse but said she did not tell authorities. The warrant says she told church leaders instead.
