Missing Indian family in US: Two found inside SUV

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.

The body of Siddhant Thottapilly was found at about 4 p.m. submerged in the Eel River about 6 miles (9.6 kilometers) downstream from where the family vehicle reportedly crashed, Mendocino County Sheriff's Office Capt. Gregory L. Van Patten said in a statement.

Autopsies to determined the victims' cause of death will be performed later this week. The family was officially reported as missing to the San Jose Police Department on April 8, the statement added. A powerful storm dropped 2 to 5 inches of rain the day they disappeared.

Mendocino County Sheriff Thomas Allman told a news conference that the body was found along the bank of Eel River, about seven miles (11 km) south of the spot where the police suspect their vehicle went missing.

The bodies of Markis, 19, Abigail, 14, and Jeremiah, 14, were found after the accident. Investigators said that vehicle may have been intentionally driven off the cliff.

Captain Gregory van Patten of the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office reported in an April 16 press release that 70 members of a search and rescue team had conducted operations over the past week since the Thottapillys went missing.

They are using kayaks, jet skis, and probes in tight spots inaccessible to boats.

Searchers have been combing the river for days, by boat and air as weather and water conditions improved. Authorities say they believe the crash was intentional. A body was pulled from the surf April 7 but has not been identified.

An inter-agency search and rescue team in California on Friday also recovered some personal items and numerous parts of a vehicle from a swollen river in which the missing Indian family was travelling last week. According to the San Jose Police Department, the Thottapilly family was supposed to have arrived to visit a friend in the San Jose area on April 6 but did not make it as scheduled.

The poster shared on Facebook described the family's vehicle as a maroon or burgundy 2016 Honda Pilot. Babu Thottapilly had earlier taken to twitter to plead for help for his son via External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj. "Rest assured. We will spare no effort".
