ADRIAN (WWJ) – More bizarre statements from John Skelton — the Lenawee County father being held in the disappearance of his three young sons.

Skelton, in another jailhouse interview … this time with Channel 4 — says Andrew, Tanner and Alexander are with a foster family. He says he met the couple at a truck stop in Niles, Michigan in September, and started the process then because he feared the children were being abused by their mother. Skelton claims the boys were supposed to have a sleep over with the couple on Thanksgiving — as a trial run — but he never saw his kids again.

Skelton is charged with parental kidnapping. He’s due in court today for a pre-trial conference.
