Searchers have found the body of a 12-year-old boy, the last missing member of an Indian family of four which perished when their sports utility vehicle plunged into a swollen river in the USA state of California some 11 days ago. A body recovered last week was identified as Mr. Thottapilly's wife, Soumya, 38.

Witnesses in Mendocino County - the same Northern California locality where another family died last month after their vehicle was possibly driven off a cliff - reported seeing an SUV being swept away in a river.

Searchers located the auto Sunday in the Eel River and recovered the bodies of Sandeep Thottapilly, 41, and Saachi Thottapilly, 9, the Mendocino County sheriff's office said in a statement. Relatives of the Thottapilly family positively identified the items as belongings of their family members, authorities said.

The body of 12-year-old Sidhhant Thottapilly, who is the couple's son, has also been found.

The Thottapilly family, from Santa Clarita, disappeared on April 6 while driving in a Honda Pilot through the Redwood Coast Highway on vacation, 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.

Investigators have found and identified the bodies of three family members who vanished while on a road trip from OR to California.

On April 6, witnesses reported seeing a similar-looking vehicle falling off a steep embankment and into the Eel River off U.S. Route 101 near Leggett, a small camping and hiking destination in Northern California, authorities said. The son, Siddhant, continues to be missing and rescue efforts are on to trace him.

It says the vehicle was encased in sediment but that divers were able to feel a person inside the auto.

The Indian American family had gone missing around 10 days ago. But the Thottapillys never made it to San Jose and were later reported missing, police said. Sandeep, Soumya, Siddhant, and Saachi were last seen in Klamath, in Del Norte County on April 5. Visibility was extremely poor and divers noted the vehicle was encased ina large amount of sediment from the river current, a media release said.

Sarah and Jennifer Hart and their six adopted children were believed to be in the SUV at the time.
