It has been four years today since the three Skelton brothers were taken by their father and never seen again. He sits in prison, convicted of kidnapping. He is the only one who knows what happened to them, and he ain’t talkin’.
Andrew, Alex, and Tanner Skelton lived in a town about a half hour from me. Their disappearance is linked to a very important event in my life. So, I always know how long that they have been missing. I can’t imagine what it would be like to lose one child, let alone three.
Every now and then in my house we mention them. They are not forgotten, even though I never personally knew them. Sometimes when I mention them, my son will ask about “The Skeleton Brothers”. And I can’t help but think that, “I really hope that they are not skeletons by now. I really hope they will miraculously be found someday. Jaycee Dugard‘s case gives me hope.”
Here is a blog post that was recently written by their cousin. It is very powerful.
