MORENCI, MI (Toledo News Now) -

The rescue of three missing women in Cleveland has brought hope to families of missing children across the country, and here at home.

The mother of Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton says she's never given up hope of finding her sons.

The boys are now 11, 9 and 7, and went missing more than two years ago during a Thanksgiving holiday visitation with their father John Skelton.

Skelton and the boys' mother Tanya Zuvers were going through a divorce, and Skelton told investigators he gave the boys to an underground organization, and they would never be returned as long as his Zuvers still has custody of them. Skelton is now behind bars.

The case in Cleveland has re-ignited the family's hope that their boys will eventually come home safe.

"How amazing for their families, oh my gosh," Zuvers said. "To have this hope that they've had for 10 years come to light."

The boys' family has ordered more T-shirts, fliers, stickers and bracelets to pass around the area.

The Morenci Police Department says they are still getting leads on the case, and still following up on them, but so far, have not had the break they need in the case.

"This just gives renewed hope that it could happen," Zuvers said. "It's exciting to think that one day we'll get to have our happy ending."
