2 bodies, vehicle found after California family's SUV went into river

Body Discovered Near Site of California Cliff Crash That Killed Family

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 auto reportedly crashed, Mendocino County Sheriff's Office Capt. Gregory L. Van Patten said in a statement.

Searchers on Monday found the body of a 12-year-old boy in a Northern California river - the last of four family members who perished when their sport utility vehicle plunged into the rain-swollen torrent. A poster shared by friends and relatives on social media suggested that the SUV matched the Thottapilly family's vehicle.

The Mendocino County Sheriff's Office said Monday that searchers located the vehicle Sunday and recovered the bodies of 41-year-old Sandeep Thottapilly and 9-year-old Saachi Thottapilly.

On Friday, searchers found the body of Soumya Thottapilly, the 38-year- old wife of Sandeep and mother of Saachi, and made a positive identification of the remains on Sunday.

The search is continuing for Siddhant Thottapilly.

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

The family was last heard from in Del Norte County and was reported missing by family members in San Jose on April 8. The personnel comes from more than a dozen agencies, including the Marin County Fire Department, Southern Marin Fire Department, Kentfield Fire District, Hopland Fire Department, Rescue Solutions, Piercy Volunteer Fire Department, Leggett Volunteer Fire Department, Humboldt County Sheriff's Office, Humboldt County Search & Rescue, Napa County Search & Rescue, Southern Humboldt Technical Rescue Team, Little Lake Fire District, Mendocino County Search & Rescue, Cal Fire, California Highway Patrol, Graton Fire Department, Santa Rosa Fire Department, Sonoma Valley Fire Department, Shasta County Sheriff's Office and Shasta County Search & Rescue.

The poster shared on Facebook described the family's vehicle as a maroon or burgundy 2016 Honda Pilot. Searchers found vehicle parts and determined that they came from a maroon Honda Pilot.

The incident happened about 30 miles from the area where another family's SUV plunged 100 feet down a cliff off the scenic Pacific Coast Highway and into the ocean.

Sarah and Jennifer Hart and their six adopted children were believed to be in the SUV at the time. Investigators said that vehicle may have been intentionally driven off the cliff.
