Andrew, Alexander, and Tanner Skelton still missing; Have you seen us?

Where are Alexander, Andrew, And Tanner Skelton?

I have talked about these poor children before and, I haven't been able to stop thinking about them. Nobody has seen Alexander, Andrew, And Tanner Skelton since they disappeared on thanksgiving 2010, or if they have, they're not talking.

the suspect claims he was merely protecting his sons
The boy's father, John Skelton, is still in jail and, I'm assuming he'll stay there with his Bond Set at $30 Million.
He was initially charged with parental kidnapping, however, he has now been arraigned on additional charges of kidnapping and unlawful imprisonment. if convicted of the charges, Skelton faces life behind bars, but he's still refusing to disclose where the children are. He has however changed his story. He now claims that he turned them over to an organization to protect them from their mother, Tanya Skelton, which is about as unlikely as his
original story

Living in a nightmare
I just hope they can be found, so that their mom and sisters can be allowed to start the process of healing. And if the boys against all odds are alive out there, they're gonna need a lot of time to heal after something like this as well.

It's heartbreaking to watch their mother cling to the hope that they're alive and, beg the kidnappers to return her children safely.

I hope, hope, hope that she may have her wish, but at the same time I can't help but thinking that if the boys were indeed alive out there, someone would have brought them home by now.

Actually the thought of them being out there somewhere is almost scarier now somehow. I don't even wanna think about the kind of people that could have them, who wouldn't wanna turn them over to the police. We know they couldn't be good people and, who haven't heard of pedophile cirkles for example...

The sad truth is probably that their father killed them, but as long as they can't find the bodies, they can't charge him with their murder.

You're not the only one who is still haunted by this story. It is just so sad. Though I agree, the man probably killed them, I still hold on to a glimmer of hope.

So, so sad.

It's a terible thought and, I still hope that I'm wrong. it's very sad how some parets are only good at showing the rest of the world what not to do to children. There should be some kind of a licence before people were allowed to have kids. I just hope they can find them. Not knowing is always worse. Even if they're not alive it'll be better for their mom and their sisters to know that, and to be allowed to start grieving. As it is now there's no way they can begin to heal again. Though I don't know how they can heal after something like this anyway. It's so very sad...
