Body found linked to missing Indian family?

They were reported missing April 8 after failing to show up for family visit in San Jose.

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.

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 auto went missing.

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. Authorities searching for a family whose SUV plunged into a rain-swollen Northern California river found the vehicle and the body of a man and a girl inside it.

Dozens of searchers had been combing the river with Jet Skis, boats and kayaks, along with dive teams.

Dana and Bruce Dekalb, who were neighbors of the Harts, reported the family to Child Protective Services, they said, because some of the children, including Devonte, had come to them asking for food and telling them they didn't want to go home.

The auto has not been located, and the police said the search would continue for the vehicle and its occupants.

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. The family was last heard from in the town of Klamath on April 5.

Sandeep grew up in Surat city in Gujarat and settled down in the USA over 15 years ago.

The Klamath River and a string of state and federal redwood parks lie along USA 101, north of where motorists saw the vehicle fall into the Eel River. Their son, Siddhant, 12, remained missing.

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.

Five bodies were found March 26 near Mendocino, a few days after Washington state authorities began investigating the Harts for possible child neglect.

The Thottapillys' vehicle was completely submerged under heavy water, said Bartley, noting that intense rains had soaked the river, which was moving very swiftly. A body was pulled from the surf April 7 but has not been identified.
