(LONDON DAILY MAIL) A daughter watched as her parents and teenage brother were swept into the ocean in northern California while trying to save their dog, authorities revealed today.

The couple, who have not been identified, were later found dead and a search continues for the 16-year-old boy, who is still missing.

The girl was at Big Lagoon, a beach by Eureka, which is 300 miles north of San Fransisco in California, as her family was dragged into the water, a spokesperson for the U.S. Coast Guard said.
