They were reported missing April 8 after failing to show up for a visit with relatives in San Jose.

The body of Siddhant Thottapilly was found at about 4 p.m. submerged in the Eel River about 6 miles (9.6 kilometers) downstream from where the family auto reportedly crashed, Mendocino County Sheriff's Office Capt. Gregory L. Van Patten said in a statement. A body recovered last week was identified as Mr. Thottapilly's wife, Soumya, 38.

The debris of a vehicle and some personal items recovered by the search confirm the suspicion that the vehicle that was seen plunging in the storm-swollen Eel river belonged to the missing Thottapilly family, CBS news reported.

Search teams have recovered the last member of a Southern California family of four who went missing more than a week ago while driving home from OR, officials said.

On Sunday, searchers discovered a vehicle in the river about a half-mile downstream of the reported crash site, near Leggett, the sheriff's office said.

The bodies will be released to family members once the autopsies are performed and cleared by the California Highway Patrol, Bartley told India-West, noting it would take some time to get the results of the toxicology reports.

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.
