Search Continues for Three Missing Boys in Michigan

Fri, December 3, 2010 11:51am EST by 184 Comments

A week after the three Skelton brothers disappeared and their father attempted suicide, entire communities keep searching, an anonymous donor offers a reward for their return, and a heartsick mother awaits word of her boys.

It’s one of those cases where no news is definitely not good news. A week after their father claimed to give them to a friend he met online for safe keeping, the three Skelton brothers, Andrew, 9, Alexander, 7, and Tanner, 5, are still missing. As hundreds of volunteers throughout southern Michigan and northern Ohio continue to look for the three brothers, an anonymous donor has offered a reward of $10,000 to anyone who can supply information that will safely return the boys home (the reward will be nullified if the person claiming it had anything to do with the boys’ disappearance).

Read our original story about this tragic case, when the boys first went missing.

Meanwhile, the boys’ mother, Tanya Skelton, 44, who filed for divorce from John Skelton, 39, in September, hopes against all odds that her boys will be found alive.”We know how hard everyone has been working,” said family spokesperson Kathye Herrera, a friend of Tanya’s. Reading from a prepared statement, Herrera referred to Tanya’s sons as “our precious little boys.”

John Skelton was planning to commit suicide by hanging himself and didn’t want the boys to see it, so he told authorities that he had turned them over to Joann Taylor, a woman he met online. Authorities have cleared her of any involvement, but have charged John with parental kidnapping and have jailed him on a $3 million bond. In the boys’ hometown of Morenci, Michigan, police chief Larry Weeks, who is coordinating the search, confirmed that Skelton has provided some information to authorities, but that they have not spoken with him in several days and that he is now asking for a lawyer.

While the search for the boys continues, though, coordinators of the search have discussed the possibility of suspending it for the weekend while they reevaluate their options. That doesn’t mean, however, that volunteers will stop looking.

“We will not be satisfied until our boys are home,” Morenci mayor Keith Pennington said yesterday (December 2). Tim Beck, of nearby Archbold, will also keep looking, because he has a 10-year-old daughter and knows how Tanya feels.

“You’ve got to have closure,” he said, while also mentioning that he had taken a week off work to hunt deer, but had spent most of his time searching for the boys. “That’s why we’re looking — for the mom’s sake.”

And even as the clock keeps ticking and the boys still haven’t been found, we can continue to hope for the best.

Then years later, I inherited my grandmother’s sewing
machine and a few of her supplies, and I attempted stitching again. Wear the skirt out and about.

The best thiing about these toys is that you can sterilize thhem
for maximum protection. 2) Slow things down: Though a wham-bam-thank-ya-ma’am quickie can be
exciting and a good time, generally, it is les memorable than a ssxual encounter thst takes iits
time – after all, how memorable can a 2-minute romkp be.

These sugar substitutes are also called ‘free foods’ as they are less
in carbohydrates and calories. Another advantage
of the syrup is that it may help you lose weight. As a
result, yacon syrup controls your hunger and curbs cravings.

This design is wicked! You definitely know how to keep a reader amused.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog
(well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what
you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
Too cool!

So we take photos of garden arrangements and plants
that we particularly like, serving as inspiration for next year’s
garden. Many companies offer services for anything to
do with residences, from the porch, to the deck area,
to the bathroom, to the windows. Replacing your old windows
wiuth new ones will keep the temperature
inside your home more constant, and save you lots of money on utility bills.

Either way, pain is the tool that allows us to detect that something, somewhere, is wrong.

So, the brain is triggered to increase food intake which
results in serum blood sugar levels returning to normal, theoretically, but they don. t require
any conscious effort on our part to control certain bodily functions
such as digestion, perspiration and regular breathing.

Overall, Amazon is a wonderful place for the best tanning creams at an extremely
discounted rate to help you save some serious cash and get the
products you really want. Booths, which have the appearance of
a common telephone booth, also come in many variations.
This premium brand of spray tanning carries a wide range of quality sprays designed for tanning
that would suit all types of skin.
