    Detroit TV station battles judge over Skelton search documents
    A Detroit television station filed a lawsuit seeking to force authorities to reveal search warrant documents related to the investigation of the Thanksgiving disappearance of three Morenci boys.
    Revealing such documents now could jeopardize the investigation and the safety of the missing boys, Lenawee County District Judge James E. Sheridan said in a letter to WDIV earlier this month.
    WDIV filed a complaint last week in Lenawee County Circuit Court, seeking an order to make public a warrant and results of a reported Nov. 30 search of the Morenci home of John Skelton, the boys’ father.

    From the article above:
    "Police Chief Weeks said he does continue to hold out hope that there is a chance that the boys still may be alive."

    That's the best thing I've read about this case, in weeks. Besides the judge saying she could keep JS in jail indefinitely for contempt of court.

    John Russell Skelton remained out of sight in a Lenawee County Jail cell Wednesday while a not guilty plea in his parental kidnapping case was entered for him in Lenawee County Circuit Court.
    The Morenci father of three boys missing since Thanksgiving was scheduled for a hearing on Feb. 9 before Judge Margaret M.S. Noe in the criminal case. Public defender John Glaser filed a written waiver of arraignment with a not guilty plea, avoiding an appearance in court that would likely have drawn a crowd of television cameras and news photographers.

    Nearly two months after three Morenci, Mich., brothers disappeared, the children's mother holds hope they'll be found safe.
    "In my heart, I feel that they are still alive, and I just am waiting for the right clue or tip to come in, or for their father to finally decide to tell who he gave the children to," Tanya Skelton, 44, says in an interview with PEOPLE.
    The boys' dad, John Skelton, 39, told police several accounts about what he did with 5-year-old Tanner, 7-year-old Alexander and 9-year-old Andrew the day after Thanksgiving.
    He said he gave them to a pastor's wife named Joann Taylor because he was going to commit suicide. Then he said he gave them to an "organization."
    Then he got a lawyer and stopped talking.
