Child's body found in river where Southern California family vanished

Child's body found in river where Southern California family vanished

California Patrol Capt. Bruce Carpenter said Friday that toxicology tests found Jennifer Hart had an alcohol level of.102.

Carpenter says toxicology tests also found that her wife Sarah Hart and two of their adopted children had "a significant amount" of an ingredient commonly found in the allergy drug Benadryl, which can make people sleepy. Authorities have not identified the woman.

A truck drives by the pullout where the SUV of Jennifer and Sarah Hart was recovered off the Pacific Coast Highway, near Westport, Calif., Wednesday, March 28, 2018.

The Hart family gained attention in 2014 after one of the children was photographed crying in the arms of a white police officer at a protest after the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. The office was still waiting on toxicology results from a third child.

Investigators are now examining "red flags" in the Washington family's past in the hope of explaining why they drove off the cliff in an apparent suicide plunge. Carpenter said "a lot about this case is unusual. baffling nearly".

The search along the Eel River is north of where another search has been going on along the Mendocino County coast for members of a family of eight whose SUV plunged off a towering ocean bluff and into the surf line below.

For weeks, a Kansas woman says her 4-year-old has been afraid to go to day care - now, the child's mother is speaking out after her little girl came home with three teeth missing.

Trump casts doubt on timing of any Syria strike over gas attack
There was no immediate confirmation or indication from Assad's government that Syrian troops entered Douma on Thursday. Last week, an attack on Douma left at least 70 people dead, of which 40 showed signs of exposure to chemical toxins.

Mothers Sarah and Jen, both 38, died, as well as their children Markis, 19, Abigail, 14, and Jeremiah, 14.

A body identified as African-American and female was found floating near the crash site on April 7.

Carpenter said the family stopped in the small town of Naselle, Washington, near their Woodland, Washington, home, during their drive to the California cliff but that investigators are still trying to determine why they stopped there and whether they contacted anyone.

But their three other children - Devonte, 15, Hannah, 16, and Sierra, 12 - are missing, officials said.

Personal items and parts of a vehicle belonging to a missing Valencia family were found this week in a flooded Northern California river amid a continuing search for bodies, officials announced Thursday.

Two of the Hart children whose bodies have been recovered also had diphenhydramine in their system.

And authorities have said social services officials in OR contacted the West Linn Police Department about the family in 2013 while they were living in the area.
