Officials seek clues in SUV cliff crash that likely killed 8

Curry, 30 and her three children were traveling down Interstate 29 near Grand Forks when their SUV slid out of control on an icy snow-covered interstate and into the path of a semi

The three children found at the crash scene were Markis Hart, 19, Jeremiah Hart, 14, and Abigail Hart, 14.

The image of Devonte, who is African American, hugging white police officer Sgt. Bret Barnumin during a 2014 protest in Portland, Oregon against police brutality went viral, according to The New York Times.

One of the missing children is 15-year-old Devonte Hart who drew worldwide attention after he was photographed hugging a white police officer at a rally months after the shooting of an unarmed young black man in Ferguson, Missouri.

"We have every indication to believe that all six children were in there, however only three bodies have been recovered", Sheriff Tom Allman said at a press conference Wednesday.

The SUV appears to have stopped at a dirt pull-off area about 70 feet (21 meters) from the cliff at the edge of California's coastal Highway 1 in Mendocino County, about 180 miles (290 km) north of San Francisco, according to the vehicle's on-board computer. Court documents show that one of the children, Abigail, told a teacher: "Mom hit me". The boy asked her to leave food in a box by the fence for him, she said.

The Clark County Sheriff's Office executed the search warrant, which was related specifically to the missing persons case for the three missing children.

"At this time it is unknown if the missing children accompanied their parents on the trip to Mendocino County or if they might be staying with friends", Patten wrote. Authorities are looking for, but have not yet found, any security video or documentation that would show how many family members were present. The Oregonian reported that the school district in Minnesota said Sarah and Jennifer Hart pulled their children out of school after the incident and began home-schooling them.

In interviews with friends and relatives, "there have been red flags", the investigator said. The sheriff appealed to anyone who might have seen the family of eight to come forward.

A search warrant was served at the home of Jennifer Jean Hart and Sarah Margaret Hart on Thursday.

Karachi hosted the PSL final last week, with several foreign players competing in front of a capacity crowd. Marlon Samuels , Denesh Ramdin and Samuel Badree are the most experienced players on the team sheet.

"We don't know for sure either way if the kids were in the vehicle or not", said California Highway Patrol spokesman Cal Robertson.

"It started out as one time a day and escalated up to three times a day, until a week went by and we decided that we needed to get professional help".

"It was upsetting", said Bruce DeKalb.

DeKalb said he called Child Protective Services on March 23, and they arrived just after Jennifer Hart came home from work.

Washington sheriff's deputies have executed a search warrant at the home of the family who died after their auto plunged over a California cliff.

Days before the wreck was discovered, neighbors called Washington state child-welfare authorities to say one of the youngsters had been coming to their house nearly daily asking for something to eat and complaining that his parents were withholding food as punishment.

Child Protective Services tried to visit the family twice more - on March 26 and March 27 - but had no success, according to the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services.

"We have not made any findings in this investigation and we had no prior history with this family", the agency said.
