MORENCI, Mich. (WXYZ) - In a civil court hearing Thursday, the father of the three missing Morenci boys told a judge that an “organization” has his children.
However, when Judge Margaret Noe asked John Skelton which organization, he would not reveal the name.
The show cause hearing was held Thursday morning in Circuit Court of Lenawee County and is related to Skelton’s failure to comply with a custody order. The civil hearing is independent of the criminal parental kidnapping proceedings.
Meanwhile, Morenci Police continue to receive tips and suspected sightings of the three missing boys – 9-year-old Andrew, 7-year-old Alexander and 5-year-old Tanner. So far, more than 900 tips have come in in the case.
The Michigan State Police, FBI and Morenci Police Department are working together to follow all credible leads.
Skelton’s three boys were last seen Thanksgiving Day. If you have any information you’re asked to call 517-458-7104. A $10,000 reward has been offered in the case.
