Tanya Zuvers is the mom of brothers Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton. The boys went missing Thanksgiving last year when their father, John Skelton, failed to return them after a scheduled visitation.

"Know that mommy loves you and I am doing everything in my power to find you and bring you home where you belong," said Zuvers.

One year after her sons' disappearance, Zuvers says she's not giving up hope.

Meanwhile, police are continuing the search. This Friday, authorities will be out from 4 a.m. until 7a.m. handing out fliers in hopes of bringing in new tips.

The boys' father is currently serving a sentence for unlawful imprisonment of his sons. As for their whereabouts, John Skelton claims he gave them to an organization.

"We certainly don't believe him. Unfortunately based on our investigation, we believe he murdered the boys and buried them somewhere," said Morenci Police Chief Larry Weeks.

The boys' mom says she will continue to believe that her sons are still out here, until proven otherwise.

"I believe he [John Skelton] gave them to someone, not an organization, but someone he knew," Zuvers said.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact the Morenci Police Department.
