Bodies of Indian family missing in USA found

The Mendocino County Sheriff's Office said the initial discovery was made on Sunday, as searchers were scouring the Eel River in Legget, California.

The family members were traveling from Portland, Oregon, to their home in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Clarita.

The vehicle was about 4 to 6 feet beneath the water, but visibility was poor and the vehicle was covered in sediment from the river current.

Last week, the rescue team had found the body of a woman, later identified to be that of Soumya, and remains of the vehicle and the belongings of the Thottapilly family.

The police release stated that at approximately 4:00 PM water searchers located the body of a juvenile male submerged in the Eel River approximately 6 miles north of the reported crash site (downstream). A body was found in the ocean at the scene, but it has not been identified.

Inside were the bodies of Sandeep Thottapilly, 41, and nine-year-old Saachi Thottapilly.

The family was believed to be vacationing when they were reported missing last week.

"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's body was found several miles from where the vehicle went into the water.

Before the family was known to be missing, authorities in Mendocino County received reports that a vehicle southbound on USA 101 went off the highway and tumbled into the Eel River. They had been traveling south from OR along Highway 101 when the incident occurred, officials said. The family was last heard from in the town of Klamath, Del Norte County, on April 5, they said. Numerous personal items were recovered by search personnel and with the help of family members, it was confirmed those recovered items belonged to members of the missing Thottapilly family.
