Searches of the Mendocino County coastline will continue with on-duty patrol deputies as calls for service allow.

Farther south alongside the Mendocino County coast, authorities proceed to seek for members of the Hart family, missing since an SUV made a deadly and doubtless intentional plunge off a towering ocean bluff alongside the Pacific Coast Freeway last month.

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.

Toxicology tests also found that her wife, Sarah - and two of their adopted children had "a significant amount" of an ingredient commonly found in the allergy drug benadryl.

Police have said a search of the family's home in Woodland, Washington, turned up no suicide note. The crash happened just days after authorities in Washington state opened an investigation following allegations the children were being neglected.

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.

Under California law, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a BAC of 0.08% or higher. An specialized group of mishap investigators is trying to discover this out with help from the FBI, Carpenter stated.

The body was found on Friday on an exposed terrain which appeared to have covered by the Eel River within the last few days as a result of a recent weather storm which brought heavy rain to the area. A sheriff's office statement Thursday says the vehicle and its occupants haven't been located in the Eel River but searchers have found numerous items from the vehicle's body and interior.

The Harts moved last spring to Woodland, Washington, telling their real-estate broker "they needed a fresh start" after experiencing prejudice in Minnesota and too much media attention in OR after one child was pictured in a viral photo taken at a 2014 police-brutality protest.

Last Friday, Mendicino County Sheriff's Office officials confirmed Jennifer and Sarah Hart, and Markis and Abigail Hart, two of the three siblings adopted from Colorado County, were found dead.

A neighbor of the Harts in Woodland, Washington, had filed a complaint, saying the children were apparently being deprived of food as punishment. Debris at the accident site and other material found along the riverbanks also was consistent with that vehicle, officials have said.
