A search was launched in Wednesday for three missing children who may have been passengers in a vehicle that plunged from Highway 1 in Mendocino County, claiming at least five deaths from the same family. According to the authorities, the five victims have been identified and they did not include three missing children. Further, investigators said the cause of the accident is uncleared.

When investigators arrived at Windswept California they were stumped. They said that it was very confusing scene because there were no any skid marks.  Sarah and Jennifer Hart had apparently driven their SUV with their six adopted children inside off 100-foot cliff.

The mangled vehicle and the bodies of parents along with three children were found. But three of the children possibly swept out to sea, including 14-year-old Devonte. People remember him from the viral photo, hugging a police officer in Portland during the turmoil of the Ferguson Missouri riots in 2014. Friends describing them as a loving family. But investigators piece together what happened to eight-member Washington State Family.

The police officers are executing a search warrant inside the home as they try to unravel the mystery of what led the Hart family off the edge. Investigator stated that at this point they have no reason to believe that this crash was intentional.
