It's been seven years since the disappearance of the three Skelton brothers. Police have little evidence and are hoping to get more information so the boys can be returned home to Morenci, Michigan.
John Skelton had the boys on Thanksgiving day in 2010 and was suppose to return them back to their mother, Tanya Zuvers the following day, but never did. The boys haven't been seen or heard from since.
John claims that the boys were given to an underground organization in order to keep them safe from the mother, who he says was abusive toward the them. John and Tanya were just getting out of a nasty divorce.
Lead Detective Sgt. Jeremy Brewer with Michigan State Police has cleared the mother of any wrongdoing and the father has been placed in jail at the Bellamy Creek Correctional Facility in Iona, Michigan. He will be eligible for parole in 2020.
The Skelton brothers, 9-year-old Andrew, 7-year-old Alexander, and 5-year-old Tanner were very active and loving boys said their mother and it breaks her heart every birthday and holiday that passes by without them.
Age progression photos have been made of each boy in hopes of making it easier for the community to recognize them now. Andrew would be 16-years-old, Alexander 14-years-old, and Tanner 12-years-old today. Law enforcement is working this case every day and still tracks down every tip and lead. The community of Morenci is devastated and hopes that they can receive some closure in this bizarre situation.
