November 21, 2007|From a Times staff writer

Los Angeles County sheriff's detectives were searching Tuesday for three grandchildren of Rep. Gary G. Miller (R-Diamond Bar) who were believed to have been kidnapped by their mother.

Detectives were dispatched to the 22000 block of Cello Drive in Diamond Bar late Monday to investigate the suspected abduction of the three boys, Deputy Oscar Butao said.

The oldest child, Brian, is 8 and his brothers, Evan and Christian, are 6-year-old twins, Butao said. Their mother, who authorities said does not have legal custody of the children, was identified as Jennifer DeJongh.

She may have gone to Nevada, possibly Las Vegas, Butao said. DeJongh and Brian Miller, who are divorced, are in a dispute over certain custodial rights, said Jude Lopez, DeJongh's father.

Miller, 59, represents the 42nd Congressional District, which includes Diamond Bar, Brea, Chino and Chino Hills. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the boys is asked to call the L.A. County Sheriff's Department at (909) 595-2264.
