The father of the three missing boys in Morenci, Michigan tells a judge, under oath, his sons are with an "organization", but would not say where. John Skelton was in court Thursday morning for a show cause hearing. The hearing is not related to the criminal charges he's facing, but has to do with Skelton's failure to comply with the custody order.

Morenci police say they've received about 900 tips since Andrew, Alexander and Tanner went missing on Thanksgiving Day. Included in those tips are possible sightings of the boys, but so far, none of them have been confirmed.

Police are still hoping the public has information from when the boys were last seen. Specifically, they're looking for people who saw John Skelton's van, or John and the boys, between 2:30pm Thanksgiving day and 1:30pm Friday, November 26. Police have information John may have been traveling with the boys between 4:30AM and 6:45AM Friday. People with information are encouraged to call the tip line at 517-458-7104.

A special task force has also been established in regards to the investigation, made up of several members of the Michigan State Police and the FBI.

There is still a $10,000 reward being offered for the return or recovery of the Skelton boys. People have expressed interest in donating to a reward fund.
