Rescue workers did report finding tire tracks on the cliff and auto parts in the water, but were unable to determine if the parts were related to Monday’s crash, The Mercury News reported.As of Wednesday afternoon, rescue workers were unable to find either the vehicle or any occupants.


In addition, search efforts were suspended Monday by a high surf advisory and had not resumed as of Wednesday afternoon, said Bert Diaz, a California Highway Patrol public information officer.

“The conditions are just too dangerous for them to continue a search,” he said Wednesday, “and that’s expected today and for the next couple days as well.”
