The finding from toxicology tests performed on the body of Jennifer Jean Hart marked the latest clue divulged by investigators seeking to unravel the fate of the woman, her wife and their six adopted children.

"Preliminary results showed Jennifer Hart had a.102 BAC (blood alcohol content)", the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office said in a statement on Friday.

On Tuesday and Wednesday the searchers combed the riverbanks and located the personal items, which were identified as belonging to the Tottapillys by family members.

The search along the Eel River is north of where another search has been going on along the Mendocino County coast for members of a family of eight whose SUV plunged off a towering ocean bluff and into the surf line below. The family was in Newport, Ore., about 160 miles southwest of their home, on the morning of March 24, and kept traveling south until they reached Fort Bragg, Calif., in Mendocino County that evening, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Hart's wife, Sarah, and two of the three children found dead also had large amounts of a substance that can cause drowsiness in their systems, authorities said.

News reports had previously indicated that there had been incidents of reported child abuse and that Child Protective Services had attempted to visit the Hart family a few days before they left their home in Washington.

Carpenter said none of the car's occupants were wearing seatbelts. Officials initially thought the remains were that of a child, but later clarified that it was a woman.

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.

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. Sarah Hart told police that she lost her temper and bent the girl over a bathtub and spanked her.
