A box containing partial skeletons of three children was found in a shed behind a house on South 12th Street, and Missoula police detectives are searching for information about the remains.

MORENCI, Mich. — The father of three missing Michigan brothers says teeth and bone fragments found in September in Missoula don't belong to them.

WDIV-TV reports John Skelton said those are not his "boys" when asked about the remains during an interview at a Michigan prison where he is serving 10 to 15 years for unlawful imprisonment.

Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton were 9, 7 and 5 when they were last seen in 2010. Skelton failed to return them to his estranged wife in southern Michigan on Thanksgiving.

Skelton has said he gave the boys to a group to protect them from their mother.
