MORENCI, Mich. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) -- The father of three young Michigan brothers missing since Thanksgiving is insisting the children are not dead.

This despite the fact that the Morenci Police Chief announced earlier this week their focus has turned from a missing persons report to a murder investigation.

The night the children went missing, Skelton posted on his Facebook page, May God and Tanya forgive me.
