Authorities Identify Three Bodies Belonging to Missing California Family

Search teams have recovered the last member of a Southern California family of four who went missing more than a week ago while driving home from OR, officials said. The Thottapilly family was on a road trip from OR to San Jose when their SUV plunged into the Eel River in Northern California.

Searchers subsequently recovered the bodies of Sandeep Thottapilly, a 41 year old man, and Saachi Thottapilly, a 9-year-old girl, from inside the vehicle. It was then that searchers recovered the bodies of Sandeep and Sacchi Thottapilly.

Deputies said Siddhant Thottapilly remains missing and another search operation is scheduled for Monday. Autopsies will be performed on all three victims April 17. "These items were of a personal nature and will not be described further at this time, but it does confirm the fact the vehicle that was seen going into the river was that of the Thottapilly family".

The Irons faced the Potters at the London Stadium last night with both clubs still unsure of their top-flight status next season. He said: "I tried to bring it down and it did hit my hand but it was because of a shove which might even have been a penalty".

The force of the river caused a lot of damage to the vehicle and windows to break, said Bartley, theorizing that Soumya Thottapilly was likely shaken loose from the force of the water, and floated away in the rapid river. This provided searchers the ability to conduct a visual inspection of the inside of the vehicle.

A search team on a boat smelled gasoline about a half-mile (1 kilometer) downstream from where the crash was reported and found the Honda Pilot underwater, authorities said.

Local news agencies are reporting that at least 70 searchers were involved in the rescue effort on the Eel River in Leggett, California. Visibility was extremely poor and divers noted the vehicle was encased in a large amount of sediment from the river current, a media release said. They soon found the vehicle, and divers reported feeling what they believed to be a person inside. About 6:30 p.m. a tow truck was able to partially pull the vehicle out and the bodies were found.
