The missing boys, 9-year-old Daijon West Jr. and 10-year-old Jamel Oliver, were taken from the 2300 block of Greenbrier Drive around 4:10 p.m. Monday, according to Oceanside police. Long Beach police located them at the Colonial Motel Long Beach at 802 E. Pacific Coast Highway around 4:45 a.m.
Daijon West, the father of the 9-year-old, allegedly injured his wife and made criminal threats against her before fleeing with the boys in a gray 2010 Honda Accord. Police said he was arrested at the motel where the children were found.
Jamel is the woman's son from a previous relationship, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. Neither boy was injured, police said.
