OLYMPIA, Wash. -- Washington authorities continue to be baffled by the case of the mom who abandoned her van on a Washington beach. More: Van found submerged in Robb Inlet

Lt. Chris Mealy of the Thurston County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday that investigators don't know anything more than what they knew Sunday night.

They continue to talk to people who know Shantina Smiley or her son and those who may have met her as she drove through the backroads of Washington state on Saturday night.

Divers, boats and aircraft continue to search the water near where her van was found on Sunday. Investigators are taking another look at the van now that it has dried out. And the sheriff's office has sent someone to Kitsap County to continue the investigation near Smiley's home.
