Missing Skelton brothers
« on: March 09, 2011, 08:58:34 AM »

The father of the three young boys who have been missing from Morenci Michigan since November is scheduled in court today.
Please take a moment to say a prayer, light a candle, send some positive energy that these boys will soon be found safe.

That was this past weekend Deanna...   I have heard that similar training events are being planned for the future.  There were rumors circulating over the weekend that some personal belongings of one of the boys had been found but now they are officially saying that couldn't be verified...

Thanks Big Red
I was hoping I wasn't a day late as usual but alas I was :(
Sure wish these boys would show up somewhere, healthy, happy and safe.

John Skelton is set to be sentenced Thursday.  At least they are playing this one right in that they aren't charging him with murder at this time.  I am still hopefull that these boys are alive but it is getting harder to convince my head.

I read about the road rally and wanted to shout a thank you to those from MI that took fliers to pass out along the way.  Good job!  Creator bless you in your travels and let the posters you post help bring these children home safe.

if you believe that the Congress can mandate that each individual person buy health insurance, you basically don't believe that there is anything that is outside Congress' Article I, Section 8 powers.

Today was the candlelight vigil at the school for these boys.  This is so sad.  So many things about this doesn't make sense like his postings asking for God and Tanya to forgive him the day before the boys were supposedly last seen and then that poem about The Dumpster he had written in 2007?  I would like to know when he got his tattoo of Calviin and Hobbes, just because I am curious about that...tattoos usually have a personal story behind them.  Hopefully if the boys are still alive they will be reunited with those who love them.  Does anyone happen to know what trucking companies John Skelton worked for before unemployment?

Another nice article about the town coming together to support this family.  Also mentions the boys' sister Courtney Derby.  No mention of the sister from John's first marriage and no mention of John's family from Florida and if they still think the kids are safe. 

"Weeks got a standing ovation for all he's done to try and solve this case and Sunday was about keeping those thoughts and prayers alive so one day it can be solved. " 

That speaks volumes about their police Chief!

This Sunday, a candlelight vigil is being held in their honor in Toledo. It begins at 6pm at the Old Amtrak Village near the intersection of Emerald Ave. and Logan St. in Old South End.

Doesn't seem like this case has gotten the attention it deserves...   with them being so close to our area it's very possible they could be right here in the county!!!

WXYZ has released computer age progressed photos of what they might look like today.

Such a sad story.

So many kids just... disappear. 




Hug your kids today.  No matter how old they are.
