Bodies of missing daughter, father found in flooded Calif. river

Eel River in Mendocino County Calif. for a missing family of four whose vehicle was reported submerged in the river

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, U.S. officials said today.

A woman's body, later positively identified as Soumya Thottapilly, 38, was found late last week, and the search continues this week for the final family member, Siddhant Thottapilly, 12.

It was encased in sediment from the river current, but divers were able to feel a person inside.

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. Crews partially removed the auto with a tow truck and recovered the bodies, the sheriff's office said.

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


A vehicle matching the description of the one belonging to the Thottapilly family was seen going into the river on April 6, when a massive storm swamped areas of Northern California.

The body was found seven miles of the spot where the Thottapilly family reportedly crashed into the river.

The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m., Monday, April 16, at Rosewood-Kellum Funeral Home, where a celebration of life will be held at 11 a.m., Tuesday, April 17. Relatives reported them missing two days later.

Farther south, authorities were still looking for the missing members of a different family whose SUV plunged off a towering ocean bluff along the Pacific Coast Highway last month. Three of the children have not been found.
