Jennifer Lopez DeJongh had been on the run with her children for 3½ years. In 2007, police were contacted in Diamond Bar in order to respond to a suspected abduction. DeJongh did not have legal custody of the children at the time, and she and the father were in disagreement regarding custodial rights over education and medical decisions. The mother and children, ages 12 and 10 were recently found in Mexicali, Mexico some 4 years later. DeJongh had a warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution. The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office will also pursue parental abduction charges. The three brothers are the grandchildren of Rep. Gary Miller, of the 42nd Congressional District which covers, Brea, Diamond Bar, Chino and Chino Hills.
