The professor estimated the children's ages to be 2-4 years old, 5-8 years old and 6-10 years old at the time of death.

Tanner, Alexander and Andrew Skelton were 5, 7 and 9 when they disappeared in Morenci on Black Friday that year.

ABC FOX Montana's Angela Marshall spoke on Thursday with a reporter at 13ABC Action News, WTVG.

State Police are investigating possibility that remains found in Montana are three missing boys from mid-Michigan.

Missoula police confirm that MI state police contacted them Thursday morning inquiring about the case of children's remains found.

Police confirm they found a box containing human remains, believed to be from three children, inside the shed in Missoula, Montana.

The case galvanized the community for years, as the boys' mother, Tanya Zuvers, remained committed to keeping their memories and the case alive.

A spokesman for the Michigan State Police said they have requested more information about the Montana discovery but cautioned it was too early to say whether there's a connection to the Skelton brothers. The Missoulian, a local newspaper, reported the remains were found by a cleaning crew after a resident was evicted.

The Montana Crime Lab verified that the remains were human. The anthropology department members say they are not ancient, and likely modern. Skelton is now serving a 10-15 year prison sentence.

That would just about fit the ages of the Skelton brothers, when they went missing in November of 2010. Missoula police say it's an open investigation.

Despite the passage of time, Morenci hasn't forgotten the missing brothers.

John claims that the boys were given to an underground organization in order to keep them safe from the mother, who he says was abusive toward the them.
