    Exclamation MI - Tanner Lucas, Alexander William, & Andrew Ryan Skelton, Morenci, 26 Nov 2010 -#7

    Please continue here!



    Tanner, 5, Alexander, 7, & Andrew, 9 mysteriously vanish Thanksgiving day. The young boys were with their father, John Skelton, and were supposed to return to their mother after a scheduled visit, but never did.

    The boys’ father allegedly first told police he gave the children to a woman because he planned to hang himself and didn’t want the boys to witness the suicide. His suicide attempt failed and Skelton was placed in the hospital for a mental evaluation. After a massive search across state lines for the 3 missing boys, police declared the father’s story about a woman was a lie, and investigators now say the case has turned into a homicide investigation.

    According to police, since the boys vanished, their father’s story has changed several times. John Skelton, now charged with 3 counts of parental kidnapping, says now that he would never hurt his children. His latest story is that he put his 3 children in hiding, giving them to a secret organization in order to keep them safe.

    With the missing boys’ father’s story allegedly changing constantly and massive search efforts turning up empty, we still don’t know the location of the missing boys. Please help us find Tanner, 5, Alexander, 7, & Andrew, 9 Skelton.

    MORENCI, MI (WTOL) - Law Enforcement officers in Michigan are looking for three boys reported missing Friday. Five-year-old Tanner Lucas Skelton, seven-year-old Alexander William Skelton, and nine-year-old Andrew Ryan Skelton have been missing since late Thursday night or early Friday morning from 112 East Congress Street in Morenci, Michigan. The boys' father says he turned the children over to a woman named Joann Taylor who may be driving a white or silver minivan. After turning the children over to this woman, the father tried to take his own life. He is now in the hospital under observation. The boys are described as follows:

    Tanner Lucas Skelton:

    White Male, Brown Hair & Blue Eyes

    Age: 5

    Height: 3'6"

    Weight: 40lbs

    Alexander William Skelton:

    White Male, Brown Hair & Brown Eyes

    Age: 7

    Height: 3'9"

    Weight: 45lbs

    Andrew Ryan Skelton:

    White Male, Brown Hair & Brown Eyes

    Age: 9

    Height: 4'1"

    Weight: 57lbs

    The father believes Joann Taylor is married to Mark Taylor who the boys' father believes is a pastor either in the Hillsdale or Jackson, Michigan areas. Anyone with information about the whereabouts of these three boys is asked to call the Morenci Police Department at 517-458-7104 or the Lenawee County Central Dispatch at 517-263-0524.

    Their father is in the hospital and the woman, Joann Taylor, was supposed to drop the children off with their mother Friday afternoon. That didn't happen.

    Police and dozens of volunteers in Michigan are searching for three young boys who were reported missing after their father tried to hang himself on Friday.

    John Skelton told investigators he left the boys with a woman he met online, but there's no trace of her anywhere near the small town of Morenci, about 75 miles southwest of Detroit and only a few miles north of Ohio.

    my apologies for posting under the wrong thread, I did not realize I was not in the correct place. I've been around this forum long enough to know by now, or so I thought. Again, my apologies.

    Morenci, Mich. An overflow crowd of more than 200 people from Ohio and Michigan came to Morenci United Methodist Church for a brief vigil for three missing boys tonight.

    As they left, there were many hugs and evidence of even more tears as the community tried to come to grips with the disappearance of Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton.
