Jennifer and Sarah Hart were a married female couple with six adopted children, making them the ideal portrait of a modern-day family. The image went viral soon after, encapsulating the moment in American history.

One of the missing children is Devonte Hart, a boy who in 2014 was at the center of a viral photo showing his tender embrace with a Portland policeman during a protest. Devonte was holding a "Free Hugs" sign when the officer requested one.

In this Tuesday, Nov. 25, 2014 photo, Portland police Sgt. Bret Barnum, left, and Devonte Hart, 12, hug at a rally in Portland, Oregon.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation. Deputies gained entry to the residence and found pets, as well as conditions that would dictate that their trip was temporary, he said. (California Highway Patrol via AP). On Monday, their vehicle was found at the bottom of the cliff.

Emergency responders found the vehicle on its roof with the two women, both 38, inside the auto, Paarsch said.

Devonte Hart, 15, and his brothers and sisters aged between 12 and 19, were adopted by Sarah and Jennifer Hart, both 39.

Next-door neighbours Bruce and Dana DeKalb said they called child services last Friday because Devonte, now 15, had been coming over to their house asking for food.

They moved to Woodland, Washington, outside Portland, in the spring of past year, partly overwhelmed by the media coverage.

And at the family's home in Washington state, hundreds of miles to the north, neighbors say the socially minded family of eight - two mothers with six adopted children - had raised their suspicions. The children were "identified as potential victims of alleged abuse or neglect", Oregon Live reported, and the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services had opened up an investigation.

Sarah Hart received a 90-day jail sentence in 2010, which was suspended, for spanking her 6-year-old daughter in Minnesota.

Police also interviewed the girl's older stepsister, who told investigators that Brakvatne drank a lot and had, on a couple occasions, told her she was handsome while kissing and licking her face, according to the complaint.

"Because they never go anywhere".

Jostein Brakvatne, 55, of 72 Shady Tree Drive, Fairview Twp., is accused of groping the girl repeatedly over the years, as well as kissing her stepsister.

Then, last week, Bruce and Dana DeKalb, next-door neighbors of the Harts in Woodland, Washington, called state child protective services on Friday because Devonte, now 15, had been coming over to their house nearly every day for a week, asking for food. "The weird thing was that the kids kind of seemed repressed and not communicative".

A family friend, Max Ribner, says the Harts were a loving group.

Allman, the sheriff, pleaded with the public for any information about the family's whereabouts.

Investigators have yet to determine the cause of the crash, and the sheriff said there is "no evidence and no reason to believe that this was an intentional act".

The family of the woman killed in Tuesday's stabbing turned police shooting is speaking out thanking neighbors, community members, and friends for their support during the hard time.

A lesbian couple who plunged 100 feet off a coastal cliff died along with at least three of their six children. Five bodies have been recovered, but three children are still missing. While the SUV was discovered on Monday, no one is sure of when it went over the cliff and into the waves of the Pacific Ocean. There is a dirt berm at the spot but no guardrail.

"I could tell you it was a very confusing scene, because there are no skid marks", Allman said. He came over nearly every day for a week and asked her to leave food in a box by the fence for him, she said.
