We can’t imagine how heartsick their mother must be! After a botched suicide attempt by their father, John Skelton, authorities are frantic to find the three young sons he claims were put in the care of a woman he met online.

It’s a parent’s worst nightmare to lose their children. For Tanya Skelton, she is praying her personal hell ends with a happy ending. Her three boys, Andrew, 9, Alexander, 7 and Tanner, 5, vanished after their father, John Skelton, claimed he turned them over to a friend he met online, Joann Taylor, to get them home safe to their mother.  The boys never showed up.

John Skelton was planning to commit suicide in his home by hanging himself and didn’t want his boys around to witness the event take place. After extensive interviews, a woman by the name of Joann Taylor has been cleared of any involvement and the search has continued along an 18-mile stretch of road in Ohio to find the trio of brothers, who have not been seen since Nov. 26. Authorities are now suspecting that John may have left the boys on the side of a road to fend for themselves.

As for now, everyone involved is keeping their hopes high that the brothers will be found alive and well.
