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.
ALEXANDER SKELTON, Age Now: 7, Missing: 11/26/2010. Missing From MORENCI, MI. ANYONE HAVING INFORMATION SHOULD CONTACT: Morenci Police Department (Michigan) 1-517-458-7104.

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.
