Police probe Montana remains for link to Mich. boys

Remains found in Montana may be three missing Michigan boys

Police say the remains of three children were found in Montana that match the ages of the Skelton brothers who went missing in 2010 out of Morenci, Michigan.

Andrew, Alexander, and Tanner Skelton were last seen in their father's backyard on November 26., 2010.

But the boys were never found. Cellphone data showed that on the day after Thanksgiving, Skelton had left his home early in the morning, dipped south into OH, then returned home, the AP reported.

But recently, the bones and teeth of three children were discovered behind a home in a shed in Missoula, Mont., and an anthropologist estimated the children to be in the same age range as each of the Skelton brothers. "Until this testing is completed and additional investigation by law enforcement in Montana occurs, it can not be determined if these remains belong to the missing Skelton brothers".

In 2011, Skelton was sentenced to 10-15 years behind bars for unlawful imprisonment, but he's never been charged with the murder of the boys.

DNA testing is being done on the remains, which were of children between two and ten years old.

"Answers. We've been praying for answers", she said.

The Missoulian reports that Missoula police launched an investigation after a cleaning crew found the box containing the skeletal remains when the former tenant was evicted from the property.

The Montana Crime Lab verified the remains as human, according to KTVQ. Zuvers told a Detroit TV station last month on the seventh anniversary of the boys' disappearance.

Officials said the bones are from the last several years. John and Tanya were just getting out of a nasty divorce. She said a million questions are running through her head.

In 1998, Zuvers had pleaded guilty to misdemeanor sexual conduct after she was accused of having sex with a 14-year-old boy.

The Skelton boys' father claimed to have given them to "a group".

Much of the speculation around where Andrew, Alexander and Tanner could have gone focuses on Amish country and whether their father, John Skelton, left them there. "It's so hard to imagine them hurting for me and not being able to do anything about it". She is 20 years old and remembers when the boys from Morenci went missing. "The thing is, there are missing children all over the world".

"I'd think they would call the police or someone", the Amish woman said.
