Police to pass out flyers in search for 3 boys

By AP

MORENCI, MI –

Police plan to pass out flyers on the anniversary of the day three young Michigan brothers last were seen.

Morenci police said in a statement Tuesday that the "road canvass" is from 4 a.m. to 7 a.m. on Nov. 25 at the intersection of U.S. 127 and Morenci Road in Lenawee County, near the near the Ohio-Michigan border.

Police hope to get new information about Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton. The boys were 9, 7 and 5 at the time of their disappearance. Their father John Skelton was sentenced to up to 15 years in prison after pleading no contest to unlawful imprisonment.

The boys last were seen at Skelton's Morenci home on Thanksgiving 2010. Police say they believe he was driving in the area where they plan to canvas.
