MORENCI, MI (Toledo News Now) -

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

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

The boys are now 11, 9 and7, and went missing more than two years ago during a Thanksgiving holidayvisitation with their father John Skelton.

Skelton and the boys'mother Tanya Zuvers were going through a divorce, and Skelton toldinvestigators he gave the boys to an underground organization, and they wouldnever be returned as long as his Zuvers still has custody of them. Skelton isnow behind bars.

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

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

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

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

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