    The family drowned in Hopefield Lake in Arkansas. Police say the family's car went through a field, weeds, then into a river early Friday morning.

    Investigators told FOX13 it's unclear how the mother and two kids went off the road and into the river.

    Crittenden County Sheriff's Department officials said they got the call around 8:30 Friday night. 

    The body was discovered by a woman walking along the river who noticed the body and part of the car inside the water. 

    "Only god and the woman knows what happened. We may never know," said a SSCO rep.

    Officers are working to confirm is another car was involved.
