Officials say they may have recovered the body of one of three children still missing from a fatal car crash on the coast that killed at least five members of a family last month.

 

Authorities have been searching for almost two weeks along the Mendocino coastline for the bodies of Devonte, Hannah and Sierra Hart.

Sheriff Allman said, “The scene is certainly in between being a crash scene and a crime scene, because I think we’re waiting for a lot of information to come in.”

 

The bodies of Jennifer and Sarah Hart were found on March 26, along with the bodies of three of their six children, inside the family's SUV, off a cliff near Westport. Their three other children, Devonte, Hannah, and Sierra, believed to have likely been in the car at the time, are still missing.
