The Harts and three of their children were found dead after the auto plunged into the Pacific Ocean on March 26 Two more are missing and another body has been found but not identified. They were reported missing when they failed to arrive at a relative's home in San Jose for a Friday stopover.

Personal belongings of the four members of the family from Santa Clarita in California, who were believed to be travelling through Humboldt and Mendocino County on US-101 while on a vacation, were also found by the team over a two-day period on Tuesday and Wednesday, officials said.

Jennifer Hart, the mother who drove her family off an oceanside cliff in a fatal crash, had a blood alcohol level that was over the state's legal limit, Capt. Bruce Carpenter of the California Highway Patrol said Friday.

This comes after a body, believed to be one of the children, was found near the cliff last week.
