Body Recovered Near Cliff Crash Site in California

California Highway Patrol received a call regarding a found body near the recent Hart family crash in Mendocino County Saturday afternoon.The call came in at about 2 p.m. about a reported female body in the surf of the Pacific Ocean at Juan Creek and HWY. 1 in Westport. YouTube Shooting Suspect ID’d; Parents Reported Her Missing Upon arrival, the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office conducted a coroner’s investigation and the body appears to be that of one of the missing Hart children, though it is not confirmed.A cause of death is unknown but an autopsy will be conducted on Tuesday. Shooter, Upset With YouTube, Visited Gun Range Before Attack The sheriff’s office is investigating the possibility of the body being one of the missing Hart girls but identification is still not clear.Mystery continues to surround Mendocino County as three children remain unaccounted for following a car accident on HWY. 1 that killed their parents and three siblings on March 26. Suspect in YouTube Shooting Posted Rants About the Company A total of eight Bay Area crews continued the search of the three children ages 12, 15 and 16 last Wednesday, combing the beach and water looking for any sign of them in the city of Fort Bragg.“We had 74 searchers out today,” said Lt. Shannon Barney from the Mendocino County Sherriff’s Office, “We wanted to cover the beaches at low tide, so that if anything drifted up, we could find it before the storm comes in tomorrow.”A helicopter, mountain rescue teams and resources from San Mateo to Mendocino, focused on the missing children who may or may not have been aboard an SUV barreled off a cliff.However, search crews were unable to find anything of value in the quest to find Hannah, Devonte and Sierra Hart.The only visual confirmation of the family before the crash is a surveillance photo of someone believed to be Jennifer Lawrence, a mother of the six adopted kids, buying groceries at Safeway the morning of the tragedy.“It’s sort of like walking around, like it feels like there are ghosts around, or something,” said Fort Bragg resident Quinn Fields.In a town as small as Fort Bragg, the tragic accident 20 miles north of the California coastline has left people feeling shaken.“I don’t know if you’ve ever been in a car accident, but there’s that like slow motion moment before like impact, or whatever- but I can’t imagine hurtling off of a cliff, and what those poor kids must have been thinking,” said Fields.Mendocino County residents have places pinwheels and flowers next to the Juan River, where the family’s SUV crashed.Photo Credit: CHP
