Missouri Highway Patrol Troop F arrested two more suspects in connection with a Boone County child abduction case Friday night. 

Julianna Pagano, 23, and Valerie Pagano, 59, were both charged with obstructing/hindering law enforcement, according to highway patrol arrest reports.

Jillanne Pagano, 25, was arrested Wednesday by the U.S. Marshal task force in Murphy, North Carolina, according to previous Missourian reporting. Julianna is Jillanne's sister and Valerie is her mother, said Scott White, public information and education officer for Troop F.

Police charged Jillanne with child abduction in May 2018. The child's father was granted full custody in December 2016, according to previous Missourian reporting. 

Jillanne is currently being held at Cherokee County Detention Center in North Carolina. Her bond is set at $150,000.

Julianna and Valerie were booked into Boone County Jail late Friday night. They were both released after each paying a $5,000 bond.
