Toxic algae: a dead family with a child and a dog found in a California park
A Northern California family who went missing on Monday, August 16, was found dead in a remote area of the Sierra National Forest, according to police. The edition told in more detail USA Today.
At around 23:00 pm on August 16, the Mariposa County Sheriff's Office launched a search and rescue operation after John Gerrish, Ellen Chung and their one-year-old daughter Mooji were reported missing.
Search teams found the family's car near the gateway to the Sierra National Forest, which leads to the area known as Heights Cove. Shortly thereafter, search parties found the family and their dog dead near the Merced River in an area known as Devil's Pass.
“This is not the result we expected or the news that we want to report; my heart is breaking, ”Sheriff Jeremy Breeze said in a statement.
The Sheriff's Department is working with the California Department of Justice to investigate the family's death.
Mariposa County Public Information Officer Christy Mitchell said the cause could be related to a hazardous environment, which could contain toxic algae and carbon monoxide, where the family was found.

“We do not say specifically that it is carbon monoxide, we do not say that it is toxic algae, we do not say that it cannot be anything else. We just want to take extra precautions because there is danger in the area, ”Mitchell said.
Mitchell added that there were no traces of injuries or gunshot wounds, as well as a suicide note. However, there is no clear indication of the cause of the family's death.
“This question is difficult to answer. We are not ruling anything out at the moment, ”she said.
