MI police are looking into the possibility the remains of three children found in Montana in September could be linked to the disappearance of three MI brothers in 2010.

In 2010 Andrew, Alexander, and Tanner Skelton were reported missing from Morenci in Lenawee County, near the Ohio Border.

According to police, a box containing bone fragments, rocks and teeth was found inside a storage shed that sits behind a rental property in Missoula.

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

The Montana remains were sent to the University of North Texas for DNA testing, police said. Missoula police said they have a "person of interest" they would like to talk to but emphasize the person is not being considered as a suspect.

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

A laboratory analysis added a layer of tragedy to the find: Not only were the remains recent, they belonged to three children - one ages 5 to 8, one 6 to 10 and the third 2 to 4.

"Answers. We've been praying for answers", she said.

Human remains discovered in Montana have now been deemed to likely be of children.

Skelton, 46, has told investigators that he didn't harm the boys.

The brothers were last seen at their father's house the day after Thanksgiving 2010.

Tanya Skelton, who now goes by Tanya Zuvers, was charged with fourth-degree criminal misconduct in the late 1990s for having sex with a 14-year-old boy. Skelton said she was now hurting his sons. The boys had been visiting their father for the holiday.

"I wonder, are they scared?"

Zuvers said she's heartbroken that her sons haven't been found. "It's so hard to imagine them hurting for me and not being able to do anything about it".

Much of the speculation around where Andrew, Alexander and Tanner could have gone focuses on Amish country and whether their father, John Skelton, left them there. She is 20 years old and remembers when the boys from Morenci went missing. "If that could give the family peace of mind, it may not be the answer we want, but it would just enable the family to have some closure". "The thing is, there are missing children all over the world".

Skelton previously insisted he didn't know where the boys were and that they had been with members of an underground sanctuary group.
