MORENCI, Mich (www.incnow.tv) -- While the search for three missing women is over in Cleveland, the search continues for the family of three young boys in Southeast Michigan.

It's been more than two years since the children vanished while with their father. It's been heart wrenching at times for their mother, but what happened in Cleveland has given her renewed hope.

“I still have that feeling the boys are alive,” Tanya Zuvers said of her three sons, Andrew, Alexander and Tanner, who have been missing for more than two years.

The boys were supposed to return home Thanksgiving Day 2010 after they spent part of the holiday with their father. That never happened.

Their father, John Skelton, is spending at least 10 years in prison after he pleaded no contest to unlawful imprisonment charges in October 2011. Skelton claimed he gave the boys to an organization to protect them from their mother.

"I have had times when I've let myself think am I ever going to have an answer or will it be the day I die I will know one way or the other?" Zuvers says as she struggles with staying positive.

Morenci is about 150 miles from Cleveland and with the discovery of the three women there, Zuvers says her optimism has been restored. While it took almost a decade for those families to find their loved ones, Zuvers has hope that it won’t take that long for her to find out what happened to her sons.
