TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Police continue the search for a man linked to a case involving two missing girls, Danielle Lovemore and Caroline Oddo, who were found after several months.

The suspect, Luis Palacio, is the biological father of baby Caroline and family members say he was also the boyfriend of baby Estella's mother, Danielle Lovemore.

Caroline Oddo disappeared in November of 2012 while Estella Lovemore disappeared on January 27.

The United States Marshal's Service helped locate Caroline, Estella and Estella's mother Daniella Lovemore in March of this year at a border crossing between the United States and Mexico.

Today, investigators and Marana Police Department personnel arrested the suspect's mother, Virginia Palacio, 43; the suspect's grandmother, Leticia Romero, 62; the suspect's grandfather, Jose Romero, 68. They were all wanted in conjunction with the investigation and have been booked into the Pima County Jail.

Virginia Palacio and Leticia Romero were both charged with one count of custodial interference and one count of hindering prosecution in the first degree. Jose Romero was charged with one count of hindering prosecution in the first degree.

Tucson News Now spoke with Virginia earlier this year when she said she didn't know where her son was. Police say she helped him cross the border.

Luis Palacio has not been located and police need your help in finding him. 

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is urged to call 88-CRIME or 911.
