MORENCI (WWJ) – The disappearance of three little boys in Morenci seven years in the past stays a thriller.
Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton — ages 5, 7, and 9 on the time — have been final seen the day after Thanksgiving in 2010.
When the boys have been reported lacking, they have been within the care of their father, John Skelton, who later pleaded no contest to 3 counts of illegal imprisonment in September 2011. He claimed he gave the boys to unknown people in an effort to maintain the youngsters out of hurt’s approach. Claims that the mom was abusing the boys weren’t true, based on Tanya Skelton, who says she is heartbroken her boys have been by no means discovered.
Police say they’re nearer to fixing the case than they’ve been, although no particulars have been launched.
John Skelton is at present serving 10-15 years on the Bellamy Creek Correctional Facility in Ionia.
Final yr, Michigan State Police launched new age-development photographs of the boys, displaying what Andrew may appear to be at age 15, Alexander at thirteen, and Tanner at eleven.
