On March 26, investigators recovered the bodies of the parents inside the auto and three children - Markis, 19; Jeremiah, 14; and Abigail, 14 - outside the vehicle.

Authorities searching for a family whose SUV plunged into a Northern California river have found the body of a child.

The family of four - two parents and two children - was traveling from Portland, Oregon, to their home in Santa Clarita, California, last week when they stopped communicating with relatives.

The woman had not been formally identified but Allman earlier said the body was believed to have been one of the people in the vehicle. The items were identified by family members as belonging to the Thottapilly family, officials said.

The poster said their last known location was the "Klamath-Redwood National Park area".

Police determined their vehicle for being a maroon or burgundy 20-16 Honda Pilot using license plates 7MMX138. A search for the vehicle was called off when it became too unsafe for rescuers.

The-Lost motor vehicle dragged to some turnout, was reportedly southbound on Highway 101 and went over the side and also in to the river.

Farther south along the Mendocino County coast, authorities continue to look for members of the Hart family, missing since an SUV made a deadly and possibly intentional plunge off a towering ocean bluff along the Pacific Coast Highway last month.

The bodies of Jennifer and Sarah Hart were found March 26 inside the family's SUV, which had crashed at the rocky shoreline below a cliff in Mendocino County.

In an email to The Associated Press Friday, Alexandra Argyropoulos wrote that as a family friend she initially thought Jennifer Hart was a loving mother.

"Identification of the body is pending at this time and an autopsy is anticipated to be conducted on 04-17-2018".
