Family of four missing on trip from Oregon to Southern California

A family of four is missing in California, and their auto may have gone into a river in the same area where the Hart family drove over a cliff two weeks ago.

Searchers under the direction of the Garberville CHP remained at Eel River, just north of Leggett, were still searching shortly before noon on Wednesday, a spokesman for the Gaberville CHP told The Signal Wednesday.

They planned to arrive in San Jose, CA, Friday.

"My son Sandeep Thottapilly is residing in California, USA". A missing persons report has been filed and their family back in India is besides themselves with worry. Would request your good office to take up... this matter with concerned authorities in United States of America and help find my son and his family as soon as possible. requesting your kind cooperation.

Replying to this message, Sushma Swaraj tweeted: "I am in constant touch with our Consulate in San Francisco". Police have said it may be weeks before they can identify the body. Rest assured. We will spare no effort. The vehicle matches the description of an SUV owned by the missing Thottapilly family.

This is after disturbing news emerged on Monday that the family's SUV could have been washed away in flood waters while they were traveling from Portland, Oregon to San Jose, California.

On April 8, the family member called police to report them missing.

Their last known location was the Klamath-Redwood National and State Parks area, roughly 80 kms north of Eureka.

A vehicle believed to be a newer-model maroon Honda Pilot went over the edge of Highway 101 at mile marker 95, but the automobile hasn't been recovered due to continued hard conditions on the river, California Highway Patrol Officer William Wunderlich told KTLA.

"Due to the strong river current, and the poor clarity, the vehicle was unable to be located" on Friday, adding that authorities "have continuously searched and monitored the river in attempts to located the vehicle", with assistance from a CHP helicopter.

The Thottapilly family, which includes parents Sandeep and Soumya and their children, 12-year-old Siddhant and 9-year-old Saachi, never made it home from a road trip to Portland, OR.

Family members said the Thottapillys were traveling in a maroon 2016 Honda Pilot with California license plate number of 7MMX138.

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