Items recovered from Eel River linked to missing Southern California family



The four have been identified as 42-year-old Sandeep, 38-year-old Soumya, 12-year-old Siddhanty and 9-year-old Saachi. These items were of a personal nature and will not be described further at this time, but it does confirm the fact the vehicle that was seen going into the river was that of the Thottapilly family."The family - two parents and two children - was traveling to San Jose last week when they stopped communicating with relatives".

They were last known to be in the "Klamath - Redwood National Park area", the flyer stated.

Police identified their vehicle as a maroon or burgundy 2016 Honda Pilot with license plates 7MMX138.

The Klamath River and a string of state and federal redwood parks lie along USA 101 to the north of where the vehicle was seeing falling into the Eel River. The family was scheduled to arrive to visit a friend in the San Jose area on April 6, but never showed up, authorities said. Mendocino County sheriff's Lt. Shannon Barney told The Press-Democrat of Santa Rosa that officials will launch a search of the south fork of the Eel River once water levels drop and the flow slows.

The family who was expected to return to San Jose, Calif., on Friday from a road trip to Portland, Ore., was reported missing by a family member on Sunday. So far, authorities have not located the vehicle, but CHP officials found a possible auto part belonging to a maroon Honda Pilot near the scene.

CHP was coordinating recovery efforts, but the vehicle hadn't been found by Tuesday afternoon.

Meanwhile, investigators were working to obtain search warrants for cellphone carriers to see where the family members' phones last pinged, a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputy said. They were also checking to see if the vehicle was equipped with a locating system.
