Remains of 3 children could be linked to missing boys from MI

Missing brothers Alexander Andrew and Tanner Skelton

A crew that was cleaning a property in Missoula, Mont., in September discovered a box containing human bones and teeth, according to a search warrant application posted on the website of KTMF-TV in Missoula.

The State Crime Lab indicated that the remains, which matched three children between 2-4 years old, 5-8 years old and 6-10 years old, were shipped for DNA testing at the University of North Texas. He's always maintained that he handed all three sons over to a "group" who he felt would provide better for them than their mother, Tanya Zuvers, who had recently divorced Skelton when they boys went to home for Thanksgiving in 2010.

ABC FOX Montana's Angela Marshall spoke on Thursday with a reporter at 13ABC Action News, WTVG.

Since, their disappearance has been investigated as a homicide.

Police began working with the National Center for Missing and Endangered Children to determine where the bones came from.

The boys' father, John Skelton, was sentenced in 2011 to 10 to 15 years in prison for unlawful imprisonment.

He says their investigation hasn't found a connection to Montana, but they're watching the case closely.

Michigan State Police are investigating whether the remains of three children found in a box behind a Montana home could be linked to the 2010 disappearance of three Michigan brothers.

The Montana case has similarities to three boys missing in MI since 2010.

UPDATE: Michigan State Police has released a statement on the investigation, saying that there has been no confirmed connection proven to link the findings with the missing boys.

There has been nothing previously linking the brothers to Montana, and it is not known if the remains are from related siblings. "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". New age-progression photos of the three brothers were released in November 2016.

In the years since the Skelton brothers disappeared, their vanishing has been vigorously investigated by the Morenci Police Department, FBI and MSP.

Their father claims he gave his sons away to an Amish family, but the children haven't been seen since.

"The public is asked to provide any tips or information to the MSP at www.michigan.gov/michtip or by calling 517-636-0689".
