The Tigard Police Department, in partnership with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help to locate three children as part of a custodial interference investigation.
In February 2018, the Oregon Department of Human Services was granted custody of three children in Washington County Juvenile Court. The children’s mother, 27-year-old Jowanda Rita Griffin, has not disclosed to DHS the location of the children and has been indicted and arrested for Custodial Interference in the Second Degree as a result of the investigation. Griffin is out of custody but still has not disclosed the whereabouts of her three children.
Griffin’s current boyfriend and father of the two youngest children, 32-year-old James Jonathan Brechtbill, is currently wanted for a parole violation and may be with Griffin and the children.
All three children are listed as missing, endangered persons, and will be taken into protective custody when located by law enforcement.
The three children are 5-year-old Aaliyah Griffin, 3-year-old Genesis Brechtbill-Griffin, and 7-month-old Neveah Brechtbill-Griffin.
Crime Stoppers of Oregon offers cash rewards of up to $2,500 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in any unsolved homicide or other felony crime, and tipsters can remain anonymous.
Information learned from social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube should be shared as these tips may lead to the identification of a suspect or suspects. Links can be shared anonymously through Crime Stoppers.
