(Newser) – The father of three Michigan boys who've been missing since Thanksgiving has been arrested for parental kidnapping, CNN reports. John Skelton—who had been in the midst of a custody fight over his sons, ages 5, 7, and 9—is now in jail after being discharged from a hospital over a suicide attempt. Police continue searching but say they "do not anticipate a positive outcome."
