The body was found by rescuers in the U.S. during the search for the family of four who were feared drowned in a swollen river in California.

An inter-agency search and rescue team in California on Friday also recovered some personal items and numerous parts of a vehicle from a swollen river in which the missing Indian family was travelling last week. They say the items are consistent with a family on vacation and unspecified items were identified by relatives of the Thottapilly family.

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.

On Thursday, the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office said it had found belongings of the Thottapilly family, of Santa Clarita, as well as auto parts from their SUV about 14 miles down river from where investigators believe they rolled down an embankment.

Washington state authorities began investigating the Harts for possible child neglect a few days before the five bodies were recovered.

Searchers are looking for the missing family members and their vehicle which is believed to be submerged somewhere in the Eel River.

The California Highway Patrol said that witnesses have told them they saw a SUV matching the description of the one owned by the Thottapilly family rolled through a highway pullout, slam into trees as it went down a 150-foot embankment and crash into the swift-moving waters of the Eel River. They used an underwater probe to see if the vehicle or anything metallic could be located.

Farther south along the Mendocino County coast, authorities continue to look for members of the Hart family, missing since an SUV made a deadly and possibly intentional plunge off a towering ocean bluff along the Pacific Coast Highway last month.

Police identified their vehicle as a maroon or burgundy 2016 Honda Pilot with license plates 7MMX138. Debris at the accident site and other material found along the riverbanks also was consistent with that vehicle, officials have said. After not turning up as expected at their house, family members started worrying for them.

The family was last heard from in the town of Klamath, Del Norte County, on April 5.
