How and where do you catch the three legendary beasts in Pokemon Platinum?

I have caught Heatran and overheard that you can catch them in the tall grass by the survival area. Then I looked every where what I said above and couldn"t find them.

There are actually several legendary trios in Pokemon depends upon which trio you are referring to.

If you are referring to the three Lake Guardians, then you can catch Azelf at Lake Valor and Uxie at Lake Acuity. After you meet Mesprit at Lake Verity, it will start roaming Sinnoh. Once you encounter it away from Lake Verity, it will start showing up on your Marking Map Poketch app. Track it down and you can battle and catch it.

If you are referring to the three Dragons, then you can encounter and battle Giratina in the Distortion World, either immediately after meeting Cyrus at the Spear Pillar or after you have the National Dex and can enter Turnback Cave off Route 214. After you have the National Dex you can then return to Spear Pillar and enter the pocket dimensions where Dialga and Palkia are waiting. You can battle and catch them.

If you are referring to the three legendary birds from Kanto, then you can trigger their appearance by talking to Professor Oak three times--once after receiving the National Dex, then visiting him at Pal Park, and finally by visiting him in Eterna City. They are runners like Mesprit, so you can catch them the same way.

Although they are not exactly a set, there are Heatran, Regigigas, and Cresselia. You already have Heatran. Cresselia can be triggered by visiting the sailor's family at Canalave City, then being ferried over to Full Moon Island. Go up to Cresselia, then return to Canalave City with the Lunar Wing. After that, you can encounter Cresselia roaming Sinnoh like Mesprit. For Regigigas, you will need Regirock, Regice, and Registeel from the Ruby/Sapphir/Emerald GBA games. Have them in your party when you step up to the statue of Regigigas in Snowpoint Temple to trigger a battle.

Finally, although again they aren't exactly a trio, you can only get Shaymin, Darkrai, and Arceus through special events.

Heatran is not one of the legendary trios.
The trio is:
Mesprit-Lake Verity
Azelf-Lake Valor
Uxie-Lake Acuity
Mesprit will flee as soon as you talk to it and you can locate it using the marking map on the Poketch.
