Three Bodies of Missing Indian American Family Found; Little Boy Still Missing

Three Bodies of Missing Indian American Family Found; Little Boy Still Missing

The Thottapilly family, from Santa Clarita, disappeared on April 6 while driving in a Honda Pilot through the Redwood Coast Highway on vacation, officials said.

Researchers have found the body of the last missing person from a family that perished after their SUV plunged into a rain-swollen river in Northern California.

The California Highway Patrol reported April 6 that a witness had seen a vehicle go over the side of a steep embankment on US-101, south of Dora Creek in Northern Mendocino County.

An inter-agency search and rescue team has recovered two more bodies of an Indian American family who were feared drowned in a California river some 10 days ago, United States officials said on Tuesday. On Friday, the body of his wife, 38-year old Soumya Thottapilly was found nearby on a riverbank.

Searchers yesterday found the body of Siddhant Thottapilly, the last to be found after the family of four went missing.

"Searchers subsequently recovered the bodies of Sandeep Thottapilly and Saachi Thottapilly from inside the vehicle", the Sheriff Office said adding that the autopsies are expected to be performed this week as part of the coroner's investigation into the incident.

Soumya Thottapilly was found in an area previously covered with water from the storm-swollen river.

On Sunday, searchers discovered a vehicle in the river about a half-mile downstream of the reported crash site, near Leggett, the sheriff's office said. They had been traveling south from OR along Highway 101 when the incident occurred, officials said.

Cindy Bartley, assistant to Chief Deputy Coroner Shannon Barney, told India-West that the bodies of Sandeep, Soumya, and Saachi are now with the coroner's office. "Visibility was extremely poor and divers noted the vehicle was encased in a large amount of sediment from the river current", the statement said.

The search team on board a boat had smelt gas below them Sunday, April 15.

Efforts to recover the vehicle continued for many hours, before the vehicle was partially brought out from the Eel River with the help of a tow truck.
