MORENCI, Mich. (AP) -- A crowd gathered at a park to remember three Michigan boys missing since Thanksgiving 2010 and to draw attention to the ongoing search for them.

Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton were last seen at their father's home in Morenci near the Michigan-Ohio border. They were to be returned to their mother and the disappearance sparked a large search. A plaque showing images of the boys was dedicated Sunday at Wakefield Park.

The boys' mother, Tanya Zuvers, says she hasn't given up hope for her sons.

The Skelton brothers were 9, 7, and 5 years old, respectively, when they last were seen. Authorities have said they believe the boys are dead.

John Skelton pleaded no contest last year to charges of unlawful imprisonment and says he didn't harm the children.
