On Nov. 26, 2010, John Skelton went for an early morning drive. This is the last known time anyone saw Tanner, Andrew and Alexander Skelton alive. 

Investigators know this because they have John's cell phone records from that morning. At 4:29 a.m. they can locate his phone 3.3 miles from his home. At 6:46 a.m. he's back at his house. What happened in the two hours and 17 minutes between those cell tower pings is the unsolved mystery of this case. 

In this episode we drive the likely route John took that morning from Morenci, Michigan to Holiday City, Ohio and back again.
