One of John Skelton’s family members is appealing to investigators to allow her talk to him one-on-one about the disappearance of his three young sons. It’s going on two weeks since the boys were seen at their father’s home on Thanksgiving Day.

Sandra Arens of East Troy, Wisconsin believes John Skelton, her nephew, may open up to her, perhaps telling her about the three boys and where they may be found. While not being immediate family, Arens says she’s known Skelton since he was a baby and has confided in her about the divorce and custody battle that led to the missing children.
