MORENCI, Mich. (AP) -- A candlelight vigil is planned in the southern Michigan community of Morenci for three young brothers last seen at their father's home on Thanksgiving.

The Sunday evening vigil is planned for Wakefield Park at 7 p.m.

Officials in Morenci say no organized search is planned over the weekend for 9-year-old Andrew, 7-year-old Alexander and 5-year-old Tanner Skelton. Hundreds of police, fire officials and volunteers have been searching the past week in southern Michigan and northern Ohio.

Their father, 39-year-old John Skelton, remains in a Toledo, Ohio, jail on a $3 million bond after he declined Wednesday to waive extradition to Michigan on parental kidnapping charges.
