A woman believed to have intentionally driven her wife and children off a cliff in the USA state of California was legally drunk, the local sheriff's office said. Manorama News reported on Sunday that the deceased was Soumya, a native of Padamugal in Kakkanad, Kochi. The woman's body was found in the water by authorities searching the river by boat, Mr. Allman said.

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.

Yesterday, authorities revealed Jennifer Hart, who was driving the SUV, "had a blood alcohol level of.102 at the time of the crash, California Highway Patrol Capt. Bruce Carpenter said at a press conference Friday". On Thursday, deputies said they had recovered debris and personal items along the river belonging to the family. Alexandra Argyropoulos, who told The Associated Press previously that she contacted OR child welfare officials, said in an email Friday that Jennifer Hart ran the household "like a regimented boot camp".

Five bodies were found March 26 near the small city of Mendocino, a few days after Washington state authorities began investigating the Harts for possible child neglect, but three of their children were not immediately recovered from the scene.

Searchers are looking for the missing family members and their vehicle which is believed to be submerged somewhere in the Eel River.

Between the two search days, the Swift Water Rescue Teams were able to cover approximately 12 miles of the Eel river, just north of the town of Leggett in California.

Authorities are also continuing to search for members of another family farther south along the Mendocino County coast.

Police identified their vehicle as a maroon or burgundy 2016 Honda Pilot with license plates 7MMX138. Also located were various personal items that were consistent with a family travelling on vacation.

Two more are missing and another body has been found but not identified.

The vehicle appears to have left a highway for a dirt turnout, then accelerated on that turnout for about 70 feet until it went off the cliff, authorities said, citing data from the vehicle's software and air bag module.
