Crews find vehicle that went into California river, 2 bodies

Family sues Notre Dame warns parents of dangers

Child Protective Services tried to visit the family home multiple times before the crash after receiving reports of abuse and neglect concerning the children.

The Mendocino County Sheriff's Office said after the vehicle was partially removed from the river, 2 bodies were found inside the vehicle - later identified as 42-year-old Sandeep and 9-year-old Saachi Thottapilly.

The boy's mother, Soumya Thottapilly, 38, was found Friday miles from the crash site in an area previously covered with water from the storm-swollen river.

Another search operation is expected Monday in and around Eel River in an attempt to find 12-year-old Siddhant who is still missing.

Search teams found and identified family members who disappeared more than a week ago while on a road trip from OR to California.

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.

"At around 11:30am, a boating team noticed a gasoline smell emitting from the water approximately 1/2 mile north of the reported crash site (downstream)".

"Once the body was recovered it was identified as being Siddhant Thottapilly, the remaining missing member of the Thottapilly family".

Rescue workers have been using helicopters, boats equipped with sonar, kayaks and river boards.

Sandeep was a Vice-President at Union Bank, while Soumya was a stay-at-home parent.

The vehicle was encased in sediment and visibility was poor but divers believed there was at least one body inside, officials said.

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

The Thottapillys were last heard from April 5.

The family members were travelling from Portland, Oregon, to their home in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Clarita.

The Klamath River and a string of state and federal redwood parks lie along U.S. 101, north of where motorists saw the vehicle fall into the Eel River.

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. Relatives reported them missing two days later.

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