TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- The father of three boys missing since Thanksgiving could be on his way back to Michigan to face parental kidnapping charges.
John Skelton is to appear at an extradition hearing Tuesday in Toledo, Ohio, where he's being held on $3 million bond.
Authorities want Skelton returned to Michigan where he lives and where 9-year-old Andrew, 7-year-old Alexander and 5-year-old Tanner Skelton were last seen.
Their mother reported them missing after Skelton didn't return them from a court-ordered visitation.
Police say Skelton made up a story about giving the boys to a friend. They say they don't expect a positive outcome in the case.
Volunteers and authorities have searched all over southern Michigan and northwest Ohio for the boys.
