The father of three boys missing since Thanksgiving has ended his fight against returning to Michigan from Ohio to face parental kidnapping charges.
  
John Skelton waived extradition at a hearing Tuesday in Toledo, Ohio and the court accepted. Skelton was driven away a short time later by Morenci, Mich., police Chief Larry Weeks and another officer.
  
Authorities wanted Skelton in Michigan where he lives and where 9-year-old Andrew, 7-year-old Alexander and 5-year-old Tanner Skelton were last seen. Their mother reported them missing after Skelton didn’t return them from a court-ordered visitation.
  
Police say they don’t expect a positive outcome in the investigation.
  
Skelton’s court-appointed attorney for the extradition hearing has said he wouldn’t comment on the case.
