The specific level was.10%, Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman said.

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".

The presence of the substance has not been determined in the third child. Diphenhydramine is an antihistamine that has a sedative effect.

Reports surfaced after the crash that Child Protective Services attempted to visit the family numerous times.

Investigators have not come up with a motive but say it appears the incident was intentional, The FBI is deploying their Behavioral Analysis Unit to assist and try to understand what happened.

Carpenter said none of the car's occupants were wearing seatbelts.

Jennifer, her wife Sarah and three of their children were found dead after their vehicle plunged into the Pacific Ocean March 26. The bodies of three of their children - Markis, 19, Jeremiah, 14, and Abigail, 14 - were found nearby. The other three are still missing.

Police had previously said they believed the Hart family died in a suicide plunge from a scenic overlook.

No skid marks were seen in the area, officials said.

Though identification of the body is yet to be done, officials suspect it could be of one of the members of the missing Indian family.

In their final days, the family members left their home in Woodland, Washington, and headed south.

A family of four is missing in California, and authorities fear they may have driven into the Eel River while on a road trip.

In an email to The Associated Press Friday, Alexandra Argyropoulos wrote that as a family friend she initially thought Jennifer Hart was a loving mother.

In 2010, Sarah Hart pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic assault involving one of the children, according to Douglas County, Minnesota, court records.

And authorities have said social services officials in OR contacted the West Linn Police Department about the family in 2013 while they were living in the area.
