Items recovered from Eel River linked to missing Southern California family

Officials: SUV that fell in river belonged to missing family

The legal limit in California is.08%.

On Thursday, deputies said they had recovered debris and personal items along the river belonging to the family. The Washington State Department of Social and Health Services said the "now deceased children were identified as potential victims of alleged abuse or neglect", CNN reported.

Diphenhydramine is an antihistamine that can cause drowsiness.

Reports surfaced after the crash that Child Protective Services attempted to visit the family numerous times. A specialised team of accident investigators is trying to figure that out with help from the FBI, Carpenter said.

When asked if it appeared whether Sarah Hart and the children were "knocked out" by the ingredient, Carpenter said he was not going to speculate.

The body was found at the Dimmick Overcrossing on the Eel River where the family's SUV was swept away and submerged. The bodies of three of their children - Markis, 19, Jeremiah, 14, and Abigail, 14 - were found nearby.

One of the two still missing was 15-year-old Devonte Hart, an African-American youth who gained attention in 2014 after being photographed embracing a white police officer during a protest following the fatal police shooting of a young black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri.

There were no skid marks at the scene, Carpenter said. When the host confronted the mother, Hart said her kids had issues with food before adoption.

A body that may be one of the remaining three missing children was recovered on April 7.

"Because fo the time in the ocean, the facial features were not there to allow the [biological] family to identify", Allman said.

Hannah Hart, 16, fled the home one night and told the neighbors "the moms were racist and were abusing her" and that "she was being whipped with belts", the records showed.

In 2013, a former friend of the Hart family told child welfare officials in OR in 2013 that Jennifer and Sarah Hart deprived the kids of food as punishment.

All eight members of the Hart family died when their SUV plunged off a 30m cliff in California.

One of the mothers was convicted in 2011 for assaulting a daughter in Minnesota, while in OR in 2013 police investigated allegations that the two women were emotionally abusing and cruelly punishing their children, according to West Linn police records.

Police searched the family's home about 500 miles north of the crash site but found no suicide note.

A "missing" poster shared by household and buddies on Fb acknowledged the Thottapilly family members as 42-year-old Sandeep, 38-year-old Soumya, 12-year-old Siddhanty and 9-year-old Saachi.

Investigators began to examine the possibility that the disappearance might be linked to a report that the highway patrol received on April 6 of a vehicle plummeting into the Eel River from USA 101, a north-south highway that runs through Washington State, Oregon and California.
