Washington, June 16 - Convinced that his divorced wife can shed some light on the mysterious disappearance of his three children who disappeared yesterday, Dennis E. McQueary, Treasury Department, who came here from Frankfort, Ky., today asked the Washington police to look for her. Mr. McQueary was divorced from Maude McQueary, mother of the children, in Frankfort in 1918. She since has married Eugene Kelley with whom she went to California. Last January, McQueary and his three children, Catherine, 11 years old, Smith, 9, and James, 7, came to Washington. McQueary was advised of disappearance of his children when he learned that they did not appear at school yesterday afternoon . At the school today it was said that a woman who bore a striking resemblance to the girl, Catherine, called at her classroom yesterday during the lunch hour. She asked for the girl and when told she had gone to lunch, left. Later she was seen near the McQueary residence talking to the children. At Mr. McQueary's request, police have launched a nation-wide search for his former wife. The Journal inquired at Burnside and it is said that Mrs. McQueary had not arrived there.
