8th anniversary of Skelton brothers disappearance

By  | 

MORENCI, Mich. (WILX) -- November 26th, 2018 marks eight years since the last time Andrew, Alexander, and Tanner Skelton of Morenci were last seen in front of their father's southeastern Michigan home.

The brothers were just five, seven and nine when they went missing, while in the care of their father John Skelton on Black Friday in 2010.

Skelton claims he gave them to a secret organization to get them away from their mother, but his story has changed over the years. He's currently serving a 10 to 15-year prison sentence after pleading no contest to three counts of unlawful imprisonment.

Last December, a potential break in the case emerged as Michigan State Police investigated the possibility human remains found in a shed in Montana were the three Skelton brothers.

Forensic testing later confirmed the remains were not connected to the boys and were over 99 years old.

If you have information on this case, please contact Michigan State Police at 517-636-0689.
