Could remains found in Montana be missing Skelton boys?

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.

An anthropologist estimated the bones belonged to three children between the ages of 2 to 4, 5 to 8, and 6 to 10. The boys were 9, 7 and 5 when they were last seen at their father's southern MI home in November 2010.

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

Multiple agencies, including the FBI, have investigated the brothers disappearance over the last seven years.

Montana reports that Michigan State Police contacted authorities in Missoula, Montana regarding a case of children's remains that were located.

"Nothing we've been able to connect them too yet, however we are working with the National Center for Missing and Endangered Children and other missing person databases to see if that's a possibility", Welsh said. Cleaning crews emptying the shed following an eviction found the remains in a box.

Police say the remains of three children were found in Montana that match the ages of the Skelton brothers who went missing in 2010 out of Morenci, Michigan.

The boys' father, John Skelton, is behind bars after pleading no contest for unlawful imprisonment charges.

He is serving up to 15 years in prison for unlawful imprisonment in the case.

"In 2013, the MSP became the lead investigating agency".

Investigators continue to be vigilant in following any leads on this case and ask people spending time in the woods to be their extra "eyes and ears" as they walk the areas of lower MI and northern Ohio.

Seven years ago, three local boys - Andrew, Alex and Tanner Skelton - went missing, a disappearance that remains unexplained. Michigan State Police confirmed they are looking into the possible new development.

Police say nothing has been previously reported that would link the brothers to Montana.

Further forensic testing has been requested by police in Montana that may provide more answers.

Authorities are awaiting additional testing to determine if the remains belong to the missing brothers.

In the years since the Skelton brothers disappeared, their vanishing has been vigorously investigated by the Morenci Police Department, FBI and MSP. He claimed he gave the boys to unknown individuals in an effort to keep the children out of harm's way.
