(WJBK) - November 2016 marked the sixth year Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton have been missing. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children recently released new age-progression photos of the three boys.
The boys were reported missing from Morenci, Mich. in Lenawee County the day after Thanksgiving in 2010.
At the time the boys went missing they were in the care of their father, John Skelton. Skelton pleaded no contest to three counts of unlawful imprisonment in September 2011, after he claimed he gave the boys to unknown individuals. Skelton is currently serving a 10-15 year prison sentence.
Andrew would be 15; Alexander would be 13; and Tanner would be 11 years old now. The older brothers have brown hair and brown eyes, and Tanner has blonde hair and blue eyes.
In the years since, the boys' disappearance has been vigorously investigated by the Morenci Police Department, FBI and Michigan State Police (MSP). Significant assistance has also been provided by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. In 2013, the MSP became the lead investigating agency.
Investigators continue to be vigilant in following any leads on this case and ask people spending time in the woods to be their extra "eyes and ears" as they walk the areas of lower Michigan and northern Ohio. If anything suspicious is located, please contact the MSP immediately.
The public is asked to provide any tips or information to the MSP at www.michigan.gov/michtip or by calling 517-636-0689.
