A body was found floating along the California coast on Saturday, near where the Hart family from Washington State careened off a cliff and crashed, authorities said.
A pair of vacationers discovered the body of an African-American female, whose age could not immediately be determined, in the surf near Westport. A third person pulled the body to shore.
The Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office is investigating whether the body belongs to either Sierra Hart, 15, or Hannah Hart, 16, the two missing girls presumed dead after the March 26 crash that killed three siblings and their adoptive parents.

A third child, 15-year-old Devonte Hart, was also missing following the crash.
An autopsy is slated for Tuesday, while a DNA analysis will conclude whether or not the body is one of the missing children could take weeks, officials said.

One of the parents, Jennifer and Sara Hart, behind the wheel of a GMC Yukon drove off a cliff with at least three of the children on board, killing all the passengers.
California Highway Patrol investigators believe the crash was intentional.
