Missing boys' dad ends fight over return to Michigan

John Skelton

The father of three boys missing since Thanksgiving has ended his fight against going back to Michigan from Ohio to face parental kidnapping charges.

John Skelton waived extradition at a hearing Tuesday morning in Toledo, and the court accepted. Lucas County assistant prosecutor Jeff Lingo says the Morenci, Mich., police chief intends to take Skelton back to his hometown later in the day.

Chief Larry Weeks and another officer were in the court.

Skelton sat in a wheelchair wearing a brown jail jumpsuit. He was wheeled out of court at the conclusion of the hearing.
