This Thanksgiving marks the 10th anniversary of the Skelton brothers’ disappearance that occurred on November 26, 2010. Andrew, Alexander, and Tanner Skelton, aged 9, 7, and 5 years old, went missing after their father, John Skelton, took them away from their mother, Tanya Zuvers, in the middle of a divorce and custody battle.
According to Fox 2 Detroit, investigators tracked him leaving his home in Morenci, Michigan and traveling 25 miles southwest into Holiday City, Ohio, in the early morning. He was the last person to see them alive.
After their disappearance, Skelton was charged with his sons’ unlawful imprisonment and is currently serving his sentence at Bellamy Creek Correctional Facility in Iowa. WLEN states that Skelton has been recently denied parole at his first hearing in September.
The search is still ongoing, and with the help of New Age Progression Images, which show the Skelton brothers at age 19, 17, and 15-years-old, police hope that this will lead to information and or the whereabouts of the three brothers.
Investigators urge anyone with information to contact the Michigan State Police at 1(517)-636-0689 or the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1(800)-843-5678.
