MORENCI, Michigan (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - It was announced Tuesday afternoon that police are changing their focus in the disappearance of three young Skelton brothers and are now conducting a murder investigation.

Tanner, Andrew and Alexander Skelton have been missing since Thanksgiving 2010.

Their father, John Skelton has been charged with kidnapping.

Police based their decision to change the focus of the investigation after talking with Skelton who told him he gave the children to an organization that doesn't exist.

They are now asking farmers to be on the look out this spring for any signs of the children's bodies.
