    The information provider believes she saw a person and vehicle matching the description matching John Skelton and his van the day before the boys went missing," said lead investigator Jeremy Brewer, of Michigan State Police.

    "Here we are, off the highway, and we're almost against a wooded area," Sandra said.

    "Right, on a main road, just south of Morenci, maybe 30 to 40 feet off the road," Brewer said.

    "You get so many tips, but what about this was different?" Sandra asked.

    "No. 1, this information has never been out before," Brewer said.

    Police said a woman came forward and told them she had passed by the wooded area on Thanksgiving Day in 2010 and saw a man matching John Skelton's description in a van parked on the side of the road.

    "We are using the cadaver dog as a search tool to find material, and also using the side scan sonar in the pond, looking for larger objects in the pond, as well as map the bottom of the pond," said Sgt. Randy Parros, MSP marine services team commander. "It's about 14 feet deep -- the dive team has told us that based on their early scans. Visibility is pretty good. Bodies of water are very interesting to us. When a body goes missing, water is where a lot of things are found, whether that be evidence or actual bodies. Things can be weighted down so people, like hunters, can't see anything."

    I wonder how reliable this tip is considering how much time has passed. I don't even remember last Thanksgiving with any clarity let alone what cars or people I drove past nine Thanksgivings ago.

    I won't be shocked if the boys are in the pond, but I will be surprised. Based on some of Skelton's earlier comments, I think he put the boys in a dumpster.

    I really want those boys to be recovered and brought home, to be laid to rest with loved ones. I don't want to get my hopes upon again though.,.it has been so long. :(:(:(

    Did the tipster know all along or did she just remember after 9 years?
    Is this a small or large pond? Have they finished searching yet?
    How big is their "hot zone" that they were unable to search this pond before?

    MORENCI, Mich. — It has been nearly nine years since three Southern Michigan boys went missing.

    November 26, 2010 was the last time the Skelton brothers were seen.

    The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has released age progression photos of Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton. They show what the boys may look like now in 2019.

    Andrew would be 17, Alexander would be 15 and Tanner would be 13.

    Skelton brothers case still open, age progression photos released

    This is one of the saddest cases ever. Three such adorably handsome young boys, killed by their own father, dumped like trash....:(

    At least they have each other.,

    That's weird. That article is dated today but we were told over a year ago those remains in Montana were not connected to this case:

    February 09, 2018

    The remains of three children discovered in the shed of a Montana home last year are not connected to three missing brothers from Michigan.

    A forensic examination of the bone fragments found they are over 99 years old, according to the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office.

    “Anthropologists were conclusively able to exclude the remains of the aforementioned children,” the sheriff’s office said on Friday.


    Skeleton Remains of Three Children Found in a Shed Are Not Those of Missing Brothers
