Skelton Boys Missing for Six Years; Updated Age-Progression Photos Released
Contact: D/Sgt. Jeremy Brewer, MSP First District Headquarters 517-712-5016
November 2016 marked the sixth year Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton have been missing. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children recently released new age-progression photos of the three boys.
It was the day after Thanksgiving in 2010 that they were reported missing from Morenci in Lenawee County. In the years since, their disappearance has been vigorously investigated by the Morenci Police Department, FBI and Michigan State Police (MSP). Significant assistance has also been provided by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. In 2013, the MSP became the lead investigating agency.
Investigators continue to be vigilant in following any leads on this case and ask people spending time in the woods to be their extra “eyes and ears” as they walk the areas of lower Michigan and northern Ohio. If anything suspicious is located, please contact the MSP immediately.
“The Skelton case continues to be a high priority investigation for us,” said D/Sgt. Jeremy Brewer of the MSP First District Special Investigation Section. “We have followed up on each and every tip and are committed to investigate all leads. Our hope is to find Andrew, Alexander and Tanner.”
At the time the boys went missing they were in the care of their father, John Skelton. Skelton pleaded no contest to three counts of unlawful imprisonment in September 2011, after he claimed he gave the boys to unknown individuals. Skelton is currently serving a 10-15 year prison sentence.
The public is asked to provide any tips or information to the MSP at http://www.michigan.gov/michtip or by calling 517-636-0689.

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) Wichita Police say they will brief us with the latest on Lucas Hernandez at 1:30 today. You can watch that press conference live in the window below.
Monday 9:00 a.m. Update: Wichita Police contacted us to let us know they have no new information to report on the case of a boy who’s been missing since Saturday.
Update 9 p.m.
With the help of the FBI, Wichita police continue to search for a little boy who went missing on Saturday.
Kristin Edson says her cousin, Lucas Hernandez’s step-mom and father anxiously wait news of the five-year-old.
“Very distraught. Very upset. Devastated. I mean, can you imagine? They’re just very distraught and worried about his safety. It’s cold out. We don’t know where he’s at. ”
Edson says police haven’t told them anything new but officers did tell Eyewitness News that law enforcement officers searched Chisholm Creek Park Sunday, following leads.
“All I know is that they took a nap around three-ish and she woke up with the baby around 6 to check on Lucas to see if he was in his room. She searched. The back door was open, and she called 911.”
Edson prays somebody sees this boy and brings him home to safety.
“He does have a speech impediment, so it’s kind of hard to understand what he’s saying when he talks sometimes. He’s very shy if he doesn’t know you. If he does know you he’s willing to come out and talk to you.”
Until then, she’s asking for prayers.
“He has never wandered off like this before ever. So i mean it just worries me that maybe somebody got him to open the door for them and possibly took him.”
Update 7:30 p.m.
Wichita police are asking everyone to avoid the area of Chisholm Creek Park as the investigation into missing 5-year-old Lucas Hernandez has led them to that area.
Police says there is currently no evidence of criminal activity associated with this case. They are continuing to work any leads they have, and the FBI has sent a team in to assist with the search.
Officers are asking for the public’s help by sharing the information on Facebook and Twitter, and calling in any tips that you have.
“We’re continuing to follow up on any leads that we have – our investigators, officers, along with our assistance from the FBI. We’re gonna be there as long as it takes, so we can – we’re trying to find Lucas so we’re asking anyone with any information to call that tip line, again 383-4661,” says Officer Charley Davidson.
Wichita Police say the FBI is assisting in the investigation of the disappearance of five-year-old Lucas Hernandez.
“Officers and K-9 units have diligently checked the home and neighborhood with no luck of locating Lucas at this time,” says Officer Charley Davidson.
WPD says they are speaking with family and following leads.
“I know many in the community have shown willingness to come and take part in a search party, and we do appreciate the willingness of the citizens to come help us in this investigation. However, at this point we’re asking citizens to share the information on their social media pages, and call the tip line with any information.”

GARY, Ind. (WLS) —
The family of Diamond Bynum, 21, and her 2-year-old nephew King Walker, who have been missing from Gary for over a week, says the pair may have been spotted over the weekend in Griffith, Ind.
Search efforts for the pair have been underway in Northwest Indiana and a $1,000 reward is offered for anyone who can help them return safely to their Gary home.
Police say Diamond has a cognitive level of a 5- to 7-year-old.
Police seek man in disappearance of Gary woman, toddler
police want the public’s help locating Terrance D. Williams, a 34-year-old Gary man wanted for questioning in connection to the July 25 disappearance of Diamond Bynum, 21, and her 2-year-old nephew, King Walker.
Williams has not been charged and there are no warrants issued for his arrest, police said.
He is wanted for questioning only, police spokeswoman Lt. Dawn Westerfield said.
Williams, known as “Dollar,” frequents the area of 22nd Avenue and Georgia Street and the 800 block of Pennsylvania Street, both on the city’s east side, Westerfield said.
He is about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs about 145 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes, police said. Anyone with information is urged to immediately call police at 219-881-1260, but people can also leave information anonymously on the department’s crime-tip hotline at 866-274-6347.
Police say they have searched more than 150 vacant homes in every part of the city as part of an intensive search that began after Bynum’s father reported her missing July 25. Bynum is mentally challenged and may have trouble communicating, relatives say.
GARY POLICE SEEK MAN FOR QUESTIONING IN MISSING PERSONS CASE
By LEAH HOPE
Friday, August 14, 2015
GARY, Ind. (WLS) —
Police in Gary, Ind., are searching for a man who they think could help them find two missing people.
Police say Terrance Williams lived near 21-year-old Diamond Bynum and her 2-year-old nephew King Walker. The two left their Gary home on July 25. Police believe Williams may have information about them.
“It gives us hope because we haven’t had any real leads in a week. So, knowing that they’re getting closer, it’s definitely helpful,” said Ariana Walker, sister and mother of the missing.
Gary police said Williams also goes by the nickname “Dollar.” He is believed to be a Gary resident, but police need helping locating him.
Many intense searches of Gary’s abandoned buildings and dense lots have not found Bynum and Walker.
“It’s been real rough. I’ve never been on an emotional rollercoaster like this before. Tomorrow it will be three whole weeks,” said Eugene Bynum, father and grandfather of the missing.
“She’s not there. She’s my little buddy and she’s up for anything that I want to do, and it’s hard, it’s hard,” said Susanne Bynum, stepmother and step-grandmother of the missing.
“I’m just trying to be strong because I know that when I do get my son, he’s going to need for me to be strong,” Walker said.
Gary police did not release details about why they want to talk to Williams. Family members said they do not recognize the man, but hope somebody will.
Police Retrieve Hard Drive in Diamond Bynum, King Walker Case
August 24, 2015-Lake County Police have recovered a hard drive which Eugene Bynum believes may be crucial in the search for his daughter and grandson. Diamond Bynum and her nephew, 2 year old King Walker, went missing at approximately 11:00 a.m. on July 25. According to Mr. Bynum, dogs were used to track the scent of the duo and they stopped tracking near a GoLo gas station at the corner of 11th and Clark Road in Gary. Mr. Bynum believes that the computer at the gas station may contain footage of his daughter and grandson. Bynum says that police requested the video on several occasions and the gas station owners refused to turn it over. The situation gets dicey after that. The video of July 25, 2015 has been recorded over. The system at the gas station holds video for ten days due to storage limitations.
The Gazette spoke via telephone with a man claiming to be the owner of the station. He stated that police had viewed the video on three separate occasions. A man named “Mike”, who stated he was the manager of the station, told us that the police never requested the video and never viewed it. Police sources confirmed that the video was requested within the ten day time frame but police were told to come back and only later learned that the video had been deleted. Now it will be up to computer experts to determine if any data can be recovered.
Eugene Bynum expressed hope that this breakthrough would help find Diamond and King on his Facebook Page Help Find Diamond Bynum and King Walker
The GoLo gas station on 11th and Clark in Gary Indiana finally gave the Indiana County CSI police the computer that contains the hard drive we were requesting. The police informed us that they would go through the hard drive and do their best to retrieve the video images of Diamond and King. Finally, we may have a real clue. I pray that this video can lead us to them. It has been too long.
It is amazing what you can do with GOD and a handful of volunteers. I am so thankful to them.
The police are working very hard to locate my daughter and my grandson, Diamond Bynum and King Walker. But they have to follow certain guide lines. The volunteers and I boycotted them for 1 day and a half and they were literally begging for us to come get the hard drive. I had to explain to them multiple times, that the police were the only one who could take take it. They kept lying and saying that they called the police to pick it up. We informed them that we would continue to boycott until the video was in police custody. They finally came out and made the call in front of us. We continued to boycott, but this time the call was real. They gave the police the whole computer. So now I am waiting, praying that this is the break we need to find King and Diamond.

Family of Vincent Moore doing all possible to find him
Shardaa GrayPublished: August 30, 2015, 4:48 pm Updated: August 31, 2015, 4:42 am
WICHITA, Kansas – It’s been nearly two months since five-month-old Vincent Moore went missing. He was last seen July 11th.
KSN spoke with one of the family members on Sunday, who has been passing out flyers around Wichita encouraging people to report information on Vincent.
Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $2,500, and says no outside funds have been donated to increase the reward amount..
Now, the reward for information about Vincent is up to $3,500 with one family member saying that extra $1,000 was donated from friends of the family with the hope that that additional reward will bring them one step closer to getting Vincent back.
“There’s no other words to describe it,” said Vincent’s uncle, Patrick Smith. “It’s just sickening to think that this is happening.”
It’s hard for Smith knowing his five-month-old nephew Vincent Moore isn’t home safe.
“As a parent, there’s no words to describe going a day without your young one, especially if you just brought them home four or five months ago,” said Smith.
Family members are doing all they can to find baby Vincent, from creating a Facebook page, “Help Us Find Baby Vincent,” to passing out flyers in the community.
“These flyers have been distributed, to my knowledge, throughout the north, east, south and some of the west side of Wichita,” said Smith. “A little bit in Texas.”
Although they’ve gone to all legal extents to bring baby Vincent back, Patrick says it can be emotionally draining.
“One minute you’re… everything’s okay, and the next minute, when you dwell on it, you do go out and actively search. Get tips and things like that of that nature. Then your emotions, It’s on edge,” said Smith.
Patrick Smith hopes for the best, but he knows there could be another outcome.
“There’s one or two options,” said Smith. “Either somebody’s taking care of him right now and we need to find out who and where, or you don’t want to think about the worst case scenario.”
Right now, Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $2,500 If you call their anonymous tip line at 267-2111.
The family has raised $1,000 that they hope to be able to add to the crime stoppers reward amount. But it hasn’t been finalized yet.
They’re asking anyone who has any information about baby Vincent to call police or Crime Stoppers right away
Search for missing baby Vincent Moore has yielded no evidence, police say
By STAN FINGER AND AMY RENEE LEIKER
August 7, 2015
A week since asking for the public’s help in their hunt for 5-month-old Vincent Moore, Wichita police conceded Friday that they have located no physical evidence offering clues to the child’s location.
“Investigators have worked tirelessly in an effort to locate Vincent,” Capt. Jeff Weible said.
They have not been able to locate any family members, friends or Wichita residents who have seen the boy since he was taken by his father from a house near Hydraulic and 31st Street South early on the morning of July 11. Vincent’s father, Gary McKensey Moore Jr., was stopped by Sedgwick County sheriff’s deputies on July 29 and was arrested and booked into jail on unrelated warrants.
The warrants accuse Moore in June of cutting off the GPS bracelet he was required to wear as a condition of his probation in a 2014 battery case involving the boy’s mother, of skipping a visit with his probation officer, and of interfering with the parental custody of a child on July 29.
Moore removed the GPS bracelet at approximately 4:45 a.m. June 9, court documents show. Friday afternoon, prosecutors charged him with one felony count of unlawfully tampering with electronic monitoring equipment, according to Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office spokesman Dan Dillon and Sedgwick County District Court records.
Moore remains in Sedgwick County Jail in lieu of $850,000 bond on probation violations and for failing to show up for a July 7 court hearing.
To date, Moore has not been arrested or charged in connection with the infant’s disappearance. The baby has been missing for four weeks.
Police have said Moore traveled to Texas with Vincent and a 2-year-old son in early June – around the same time he cut off the device.
The 2-year-old was with Moore when he was stopped by deputies on July 29, but Vincent was not.
Investigators have determined that Vincent’s mother has not seen him since early June, when she dropped Vincent and his brother off for visitation, Weible said Friday. She has volunteered for two interviews with police and also volunteered for a polygraph test, “which she has passed,” he said.
Since dropping the two children off for visitation, the mother has made “numerous attempts” to see them, he said, but all of those attempts were denied. Those attempts continued after the last reported sighting of baby Vincent on July 11.
Law enforcement officials searched a wooded area near K-15 and 55th Street South for several hours Monday in response to a tip, but authorities said no evidence linked to Vincent was found.
Sedgwick County District Court records show a history of violence between Moore and the infant’s mother, as well as documents outlining the mother’s concerns over her children’s welfare when they are in Moore’s presence.
The day after suffering a beating and choking at Moore’s hands – an act that resulted in three misdemeanor battery convictions in October – Michelle Mendez petitioned the court for a protective order, saying Moore becomes “rougher than he intends to (with the kids) when he is angry and they misbehave.”
“He has never injured either of them, but if he doesn’t get help, it is only a matter of time before he hits them harder than he means to,” Mendez wrote in the June 6, 2014, request.
She echoed the worry in a second petition for a protective order filed June 18, about two weeks after the baby and his 2-year-old sibling went with Moore for his visitation.
“He’s never intentionally hurt them,” Mendez wrote, referring to her kids, “but he is rougher than he intends to be when he’s angry. He is abusive towards me every time he gets a chance to see the kids. He uses the children to try to control me.
“Last time he had visitation, he up and left the state, and turn off his phone and took the kids with him. I haven’t seen my babies in almost two weeks.”

SHERIFF REPORTS TO COMMISSIONERS 7-13-15 LMS
Sheriff Lynn Bowerman told the Lemhi County Commissioners Monday, July 13, that based on the intense and extensive search conducted near Leadore for two year old Deorr Kunz Jr., it doesn’t make sense that the boy was not found.
Bowerman said the trained search dogs found nothing and kept coming back to the camp. Helicopters were used day and night to fly the area and fly over Stone Reservoir which is shallow enough to see to the bottom. He said divers explored the lake while approximately 150 volunteers on foot and on horseback conducted a thorough three mile grid-search of Timber Creek. The possibility of abduction by bear, wolf or mountain lion is not being ruled out although no trace of the boy or his apparel, which included oversized cowboy boots, was found.
The small boy disappeared Friday, July 10, from the Timber Creek Campground at Stone Reservoir. Bowerman said Timber Creek terrain is steep and rugged and is a mix of sagebrush and timber. He said given the proven expertise of the dogs the boy should have been found the first day.
Commissioner Chairman Rick Snyder described the area where the family was camped as being at the lake’s outlet which is very steep with very fast moving water flowing through brush and trees and limbs, all of which were pulled apart by searchers. Bowerman said people in wet suits were in the creek searching every hole.
The search has been officially suspended. The sheriff said investigators from Bonneville and Bingham counties have offered assistance in further follow-up investigations into any possible criminal histories of those involved.
Two-Year-Old Lemhi County Boy Still Missing, Different Child Found In Minnesotta
By Jon King, August 4, 2015
News out of Minnesota that a missing Idaho child was found safe late Sunday night is true, however, the missing child is not Two-year-old DeOrr Kunz Jr. of Lemhi County, who disappeared while camping with his family on July 10. Stearns County, Minnesotta Sheriff Robert Dickhaus says an Idaho child was found after a camper at Birch Lakes State Campground became suspicious.
“One of the campers out there had observed some suspicious activity of a fellow camper across the road,” Dickhaus said. “The individual noted that the people camping across from them were acting suspicious in a manner that they would cover their vehicles during the day with tarps, an ATV was also covered up. They also had backpacks packed and seemed to carry the backpacks with them.”
The missing child found was a 16-month-old girl named Oaklie Rose, not a 2 year old boy as reported by some media outlets. The good news is the child was found in good health other than some mosquito bites. The child’s birth father Joshua Oquando was arrested on charges of 2nd degree kidnapping.
“Joshua is the father of the child,” Dickhaus said. “He felt the child wasn’t properly cared for and wanted to remove the child from that situation. His intent to my knowledge was not to harm the child or do any kind of activities with her other than keep the child away from her birth mother.”
Lemhi County Sheriff Len Bowerman was happy to hear that a missing child was found, but says it is definitely not the boy his deputies have been searching for over the past month. According to Bowerman, it is very unlikely that two-year old DeOrr Kunz was kidnapped.
“It’s not my belief at this time that the child was abducted,” Bowerman said. “The grandfather was watching the child momentarily, he looked away, when he looked back the child was missing. The grandfather was also camped right next to the only roadway in and out of this campground. It is not our belief at this time the child was abducted.”
Bowerman says that searchers are still looking for signs of DeOrr Kunz and continue to search local bodies of water for the missing boy. So far, Bowerman says hundreds and hundreds of people have helped search for DeOrr with little evidence yet of what happened. At this point it is thought that the child may have been taken by a wild animal.

THE FBI HAS OFFERED A $20,000 REWARD FOR INFORMATION THAT HELPS THEM FIND A 2-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO DISAPPEARED 10 DAYS AGO AND IS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN KIDNAPPED.
MYRA LEWIS VANISHED ON MARCH 1 AFTER PLAYING WITH HER SISTER OUTSIDE THE FAMILY’S CAMDEN, MISSISSIPPI HOME.
HER MOTHER ERICKA LEWIS WAS ARRESTED LAST WEEK FOR A PROBATION VIOLATION BECAUSE POLICE FOUND THAT SHE WAS IN POSSESSION OF A FIREARM.
THE ARREST IS REPORTEDLY BEING CONSIDERED AS UNRELATED TO HER DAUGHTER’S DISAPPEARANCE, BUT ERICKA’S MOTHER SAYS THAT THE ARREST IS SERVING AS AN UNNECESSARY DISTRACTION.
‘THEY SHOULD HAVE WAITED BECAUSE THAT EVEN TOOK THEIR MIND OFF MYRA FOR A MOMENT,’ MYRA’S GRANDMOTHER MARTHA SAMDERS SAID.
‘THEY CAN PRESSURE ERICA, BUT SHE’LL NEVER GIVE IN. SHE’LL NEVER GIVE IN BECAUSE SHE DIDN’T DO ANYTHING.’
THE MISSING GIRL’S FATHER GREGORY LEWIS TOLD LOCAL STATION WJTV THAT BOTH HE AND HIS WIFE HAVE TAKEN POLYGRAPH TESTS AS WELL AS OTHER MEMBERS OF THEIR FAMILY.
MADISON COUNTY SHERIFF RANDY TUCKER SAID THAT THE RELATIVES HAVE BEEN FULLY COOPERATIVE AND HAVE TURNED OVER THEIR SUV FOR INSPECTION AS WELL AS A NUMBER OF UNDISCLOSED ITEMS FROM THEIR HOME.
‘AT FAR AS WHAT WAS IN THE BAGS, OBVIOUSLY WE’LL START WHERE THE CHILD WAS LAST SEEN AND WE HAVE EVIDENCE RESPONSE FOLKS WHO ARE GOING TO THAT LOCATION AND RECOVERING EVIDENCE AND ALL OF THIS IS A COLLECTIVE EFFORT TO DISCOVER WHERE LITTLE MYRA IS,’ FBI SPECIAL AGENT DAN MCMULLEN TOLD CBS.
‘I’M NOT GOING TO TALK ABOUT ANYTHING SPECIFIC WITH REGARD TO THE INVESTIGATION.’
SHERIFF TUCKER DID TELL WJTV THAT ONE OF THE REASONS WHY THE SUV IS BEING CHECKED OUT IS IN CASE THE TODDLER WAS RUN OVER BY THE VEHICLE.
MYRA DISAPPEARED BETWEEN 10.30AM AND 11AM ON SATURDAY MARCH 1 BUT THE FAMILY DID NOT REPORT IT TO AUTHORITIES UNTIL ABOUT 4PM BECAUSE THEY SAID THEY DID AN INITIAL SEARCH THEMSELVES. AN AMBER ALERT WAS ISSUED ON SUNDAY MARCH 2.
‘SINCE HER DISAPPEARANCE WAS REPORTED, MULTIPLE STATE, LOCAL, AND FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES HAVE PARTICIPATED IN A MASSIVE, COLLABORATIVE SEARCH EFFORT,’ THE JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI FBI OFFICE SAID IN A STATEMENT.
‘SIGNIFICANT RESOURCES HAVE BEEN DEDICATED TO THIS INVESTIGATION, INCLUDING EXTENSIVE GROUND AND AIR SEARCHES, AND UTILIZATION OF SPECIALLY TRAINED SEARCH TEAMS.’
LOCAL AND FEDERAL AUTHORITIES HAVE SEARCHED 4-SQUARE-MILES SURROUNDING THE FAMILY’S HOME WITH THE HELP OF 300 OFFICERS AND VOLUNTEERS AS WELL AS SEARCH DOGS.
IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT SHE HAS BEEN MISSING FOR 10 DAYS AT THIS POINT, THEY STILL REMAIN CONFIDENT THAT SHE IS ALIVE, CITING A KIDNAPPING AS THE MOST LIKELY SCENARIO.
‘WE FULLY EXPECT A POSITIVE OUTCOME,’ SHERIFF TUCKER SAID.
‘WE NEED TO GET MYRA HOME, AND AGAIN WE WANT TO STRESS TO EVERYONE WE NEED YOUR HELP, THE FAMILY NEEDS YOUR HELP AND WE APPRECIATE YOUR CALLS.’
