MORENCI, Mich. — The Michigan State Police has released new age-progression photos of three brothers who have been missing for more than six years.

Andrew, Alex, and Tanner Skelton were last seen on Thanksgiving 2010, after spending the holiday with their father, John. The boys were ages 9, 7, and 5 respectively at the time.  John had told investigators he handed his sons over to an organization to protect them from their mother. However, police have never been able to verify the group exists.

There have been several vigils and searches since the boys disappeared, but there has been no sign of them in six years. Some investigators have said they believe the brothers are dead.

John Skelton is now serving time after pleading no contest to unlawful imprisonment charges in the case.

The new age-progressed photos show what police believe the boys would look like now at the ages of 15, 13 and 11.

A reward of up to $60,000 is being offered for information that leads to the Skelton brothers. Anyone with information is asked to call the Morenci Police Department at 517-458-7104
