Body found amid search for SoCal family after SUV swept into river

The Harts, who immersed their children in alternative culture, left many friends and acquaintances with the impression of a happy family that emphasized love, unity and music.

The vehicle itself and the four members of the Thottapilly family have not been recovered from the Eel River, which remains too risky for divers to enter, but searchers along the banks located numerous items consistent with a Honda vehicle and interior, and items consistent with a family traveling on vacation, the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

She also said her daughter told her after the incident, her teacher put a cold towel on her injuries.

Tracks lead away from the edge of the cliff Wednesday, March 28, 2018, where the SUV of Jennifer and Sarah Hart went off the Pacific Coast Highway near Westport, Calif., on Monday.

In the days after officials found personal belongings of a missing Southern California family along a Northern California river, authorities said Friday they discovered a body.

Police had previously said they believed the Hart family died in a suicide plunge from a scenic overlook.

Jennifer Hart had an alcohol level of 0.102, according to a news release from the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office, citing a preliminary toxicology report. "The legal limit for driving in California is 0.08". Two children who were in the wreck and Jen's wife, Sarah, also had in their systems an allergy drug that can lead to drowsiness, he said. The office was still waiting on toxicology results from a third child.

The scientists also explored the effectiveness of using high-efficiency particulate air filters with the hand dryers. Scientists set off hand dryers in the bathrooms and placed a special plate just beneath them for 30 seconds.

No one in the vehicle, a GMC Yukon, was wearing a seatbelt, Captain Carpenter said on Friday.

"It was pure acceleration from the last brake application until it hit the bottom of the cliff", Greg Baarts, the acting assistant chief of the California Highway Patrol's northern division, said at the time. Carpenter said "a lot about this case is unusual. baffling nearly". He said they were trying to get information about the unidentified body out to the public.

Cheryl Hart, who identified herself as a friend of Sarah Hart, called 911 in Clark County on Monday, March 26, anxious because she hadn't been able to reach Sarah since receiving a text message from her at 3 a.m. two days earlier.

The Oregonian obtained court records from Texas that shows the paternal aunt of Devonte, Sierra and Jeremiah Hart repeatedly tried to gain custody of the kids but was denied in 2010.

Devonte drew national attention after he was photographed in tears while hugging a white police officer during a 2014 protest.

"I have removed my child from that day care because she's afraid for her safety, and I'm anxious about her safety", Franklin said.

Sarah and Jennifer Hart and their six adopted children were believed to be in the SUV at the time.
