The family was officially reported as missing to the San Jose Police Department on April 8, the statement added.

The Mendocino County Sheriff's Office says that around 4 pm (PDT) Monday, searchers found the body of a boy submerged in the Eel River about 6 miles downstream from where the SUV crashed. Separately, an adult female body recovered on Friday from another area of the river was identified as Soumya Thottapilly, 38. Hannah, 16, Sierra, 12, and 15-year-old Devonte, who was the subject of a viral photo last year which showed him embracing a Portland police officer, are still missing and presumed dead.

More than a week after an Indian family went missing in USA, their SUV that had fallen into a rain-swollen Northern California river has been found with two bodies inside, authorities said on Monday, as per a report in the New York Post.

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. At approximately 11:30 a.m. a boating team noticed a gasoline smell coming from the water approximately a half-mile north of the reported crash site (down stream) along Highway 101 south of Dora Creek in Leggett. This provided searchers the ability to conduct a visual inspection of the inside of the vehicle. The search consisted of 21 water searchers, which included two jet-ski teams, two boat teams and several Kayak/Carlson board teams. "Visibility was extremely poor and divers noted the vehicle was encased in a large amount of sediment from the river current", he said. Authorities, who originally had said the body was a child's, anticipate that an autopsy will be performed early next week.

Soon thereafter, search divers entered the water and were able to feel what they believed to be a person inside of the vehicle. A body was pulled from the surf April 7 but has not been identified. 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.

"It does confirm the fact the vehicle that was seen going into the river was that of the Thottapilly family", said California Highway Patrol.
