Community gathers again to pray for missing Morenci boys

A candlelight vigil lit up Adrian as community members continue to hold out hope that the three missing brothers Alexander, Tanner and Andrew Skelton will be found alive.

At the beginning of the of the ceremony they asked everyone to say a special prayer for the boys TM mother, Tanya Skelton. In an exclusive interview with WDIV, the NBC affiliate in Detroit Tanya opened up. She reflects back on what police told the family not long after the boys disappeared.

Well generally they had told us they didn't expect a positive outcome and quite honestly I haven't asked them if they have changed their mind.

Dozens of people gathered at Trestle Park in Adrian as they said a prayer for the boys TM. The three brothers went missing a month ago. Their grandfather, Don Zuvers says the disappearances have hit the family hard. We got 3 little spots there were holding out hope and prayers for and we know they TMre alive someplace, Zuvers.

Mary Watters doesn't know the family. The sense of their loss the family is experiencing led her to the vigil. I TMm thinking if these were my grandchildren id want someone to safely with me and Christmas is a time of joy and happiness, Watters.

There was just one thing on the minds of the people who gathered here to hold onto faith. I TMm just thinking there's power in prayer and the ones that cant be here can prayer at home, Watters.

Zuvers calls the outpouring of support the family has received unbelievable. He said he just wants to say thanks, to all who TMve been a part of the search, prayer and support for his grandsons.
