Missing Grandsons Found In Mexico


TIJUANA, Mexico, Aug. 11 (UPI) — The three abducted grandsons of U.S. Rep. Gary Miller, R-Calif., have been found unharmed in Tijuana, Mexico, police said.

The boys, an 11-year-old and twin 9-year-olds, were found with their mother, Jennifer A. Lopez and her husband George DeJongh, in the Mesa de Otay section of Tijuana, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

Lopez, accused of abducting her sons, was arrested Wednesday and was being held in police custody in Mexico, along with DeJongh. Both were expected to be handed over to U.S. authorities, the newspaper said.

Lopez and the boys’ father, Brian Miller, were going through a custody battle at the time of the abduction. Lopez allegedly disappeared with the children in 2007 after losing sole custody of them and disobeyed a court order to return them to their grandfather, the report said.
