MORENCI, Mich. (WJBK) -

The Morenci boys, Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton, have been missing for nearly two years. They disappeared Thanksgiving Day, 2010. Now family and friends are renewing efforts to find them.

Tanya Zuvers is hoping new age progression pictures may lead her to her missing sons. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children created the photos of what they may look like now, 2 years after their disappearance. Alexander would be 9, big brother Andrew, 10 and the youngest, Tanner, 7. We talked to their mother by phone; she believes they're still alive.

"In my heart, I don't feel like they're gone," Zuvers told Fox 2. "I still feel they are very much alive. It's just going to take the right person in the right place at the right time and we'll get them home."

Tanya's nightmare began Thanksgiving, 2010. The boys went to stay with their father, John Skelton, at his home in Morenci for the holiday. Instead of returning them the next day, John says he gave them to a "group" because he feared they were being abused. His story never added up. Fearing the worst, volunteers braved bitter winds to search for the brothers. Despite their efforts, the children were never found.

John Skelton is currently serving time for their disappearance. Authorities now consider the case a murder investigation. But, their mom is not ready to give up hope. She and others continue to pass out flyers at truck stops and rest areas. She wakes up each day on a mission, to make sure her sons are not forgotten.

On the anniversary of their disappearance, an event is being planned at Wakefield Park to honor the boys.
