SAN DIEGO (AP) - Investigators say they believe a San Diego-area family that disappeared more than three years ago voluntarily went to Mexico.

The San Diego County Sheriff's Department said Tuesday that it pursued hundreds of leads to find Joseph and Summer McStay and their two young sons. It is turning over the investigation to the FBI due to that agency's experience working outside the United States.

The McStays disappeared in February 2010, when investigators found rotten eggs on the kitchen counter and two cereal bowls full of popcorn in the living room of the family's Fallbrook home.

Four days after the family vanished, their SUV was parked at a San Diego shopping mall, just steps from Tijuana, Mexico. A dark surveillance video showed four people walking across the border that night.
