The father of three missing Michigan brothers says he gave them to someone from an "organization" who visited his home on Thanksgiving.
John Skelton told a judge on Thursday that he knows the organization but "didn't know the person."
The Daily Telegram of Adrian says Skelton refused to identify the group. He was testifying at a court hearing related to the custody of 9-year-old Andrew, 7-year-old Alexander and 5-year-old Tanner.
The boys have been missing since Thanksgiving, when they were at Skelton's home in Morenci on the Michigan-Ohio state line. Skelton has been jailed on parental kidnapping charges; the court hearing was unrelated to his criminal case.
His estranged wife, Tanya Skelton, was in court. Skelton asked her why she wasn't wearing her ring.
