FORTUNA - CHP continues to search for two people Friday, in connection with the fatal hit-and-run accident last week in Fortuna. Two young girls were killed, with no arrests still made.

However, the attorneys of the people being sought say they have contacted CHP numerous times to aid in the investigation.

"As a small community we mourn the tragic loss of two young teenagers that had such a bright future; so please assist us in seeking closure for this incident so we can all begin the healing process," said CHP Commander Brett Fabbri.

As the registered owner of the car involved in the crash, Marcia Kitchen, mother of one of the victims, and her boyfriend Joshua Pearlston, are being sought for questioning.

"Ms. Kitchen and Mr. Pearlston were contacted at the scene of the collision the night that it occurred. However the CHP has not had direct contact with them since the night of the collision," Fabbri said.

In their latest press release yesterday, CHP enlisted the public's help in finding Kitchen and Pearlston in order to determine whether they were involved or not

"We have made several requests to the attorney of our desire to interview her but she has not been made available to us to provide any type of a statement about her involvement," Fabbri said.

But the attorneys say, that's not true. In an email from CHP to Ms. Kitchen's attorneys Okin and Griego, the attorneys say that they quote "...have been in essentially daily contact with and available to CHP since July 13. We have consistently indicated that if you desired to arrest Ms. Kitchen prior to being able to complete our preliminary investigation that we would make her immediately available for arrest."

The attorneys said they will not be commenting further at this time.
