Rescuers searching for missing Indian family find woman's body

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.

The five bodies were recovered days after authorities in Washington State began investigating the couple for possible child neglect.

"They were able to locate numerous items that appeared to have come from a vehicle body and interior", the Garberville office of the California Highway Patrol said.

Devonte Hart became the center of attention after the crash. A specialized team of accident investigators is trying to figure that out with help from the FBI, Carpenter said.

Carpenter said the family stopped in the small town of Naselle, Washington, about 80 miles (128 kilometers) northwest of their Woodland, Washington, home, during their drive to the California cliff.

Identification of the body is pending, and an autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.

The Thottapilly family, Sandeep, his wife Soumya, 38, and their two children, 12-year-old Siddhant and his 9-year-old sister Saachi, embarked on a trip to Portland, Oregon from their Valencia residence on March 30. The 15-year-old made headlines in 2014 after a photographer shot a photo of him hugging a police officer during a protest after the decision was made to not press charges against the officers who shot and killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Police confirmed that Jennifer, Sarah, and their three children were dead.

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.

Initially, Allman said the body was that of a child but the sheriff's office later corrected that it was a woman's.

The New York Daily News reports that Jennifer Hart's blood alcohol content was 0.102.

After investigating for almost a week, the authorities have now confirmed that the Indian family of four has drowned in the Eel River in Northern California, following a massive storm. "The theory is the child is from this vehicle".

"It appears she (Hart) was about 70 feet from the edge and accelerated from there", Carpenter said.
