Tanya Skelton spoke with Local 4 on Tuesday about her three missing sons and their father, John Skelton.

She addressed the claims John made about her abusing the children.

"For him to accuse me hurts," Tanya said.

She also talked about the time she spent in prison.

"I am a different person now," Tanya said. "My children get time outs, they don't even get spanked."

Last week, Tanya broke her silence since her sons went missing on Thanksgiving day. Sources said she had been encouraged by police to stay quiet while they interrogated her soon-to-be ex-husband John Skelton on the whereabouts of their boys.

Tanya had a message for her estranged husband:

?Everyone, not just me, not just my family, but everyone has hurt enough. Just tell us where the boys are,? Tanya said.
