No trace yet of Indian family missing in the US

No trace yet of Indian family missing in the US

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

According to reports in the local United States media, a search was still underway north of Leggett for an SUV that was swept away with its occupants in flood waters in the Eel River.

The Thottapillys were expected to arrive at a family member's home in San Jose on Friday, April 6, but never showed up, San Jose Police Department Officer Gina Tepoorten said.

"My son Sandeep Thottapilly is residing in California, USA".

Farther south along the Mendocino County coast, authorities continue to look for members of the Hart family, missing since an SUV made a deadly and possibly intentional plunge off a towering ocean bluff along the Pacific Coast Highway last month.

Minutes later, the whole family took off, apparently headed for Portland.

A flyer asking for help in the search was posted on a family member's Facebook page.

A body was pulled out of the surf Saturday but was not immediately identified.

The European Commission statement also said its inspections did not mean that companies are guilty of anti-competitive behavior. EC competition authorities are reported to have seized documents relating to sport media rights earlier on Tuesday.

"Through the collaborated efforts of all the involved agencies we are working to resolve this incident as quickly and safely as possible", Wunderlich wrote.

Local residents have given a community action call, urging Indian Consulate officials, community leaders, family members and friends to get together and form an action plan to find the family.

The crash happened just after 8 a.m. near Putnam. The vehicle matches the description of an SUV owned by the missing Thottapilly family.

The poster said their last known location was the "Klamath-Redwood National Park area".

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.

Two adults and two children of the Thottappilly family were on their way from Portland, Oregon, in a maroon Honda Pilot to San Jose, where they suddenly stopped communicating with family in Valencia.

"Based on our preliminary investigation and witness statements, we believe the vehicle was a 2016 or 2017 Honda Pilot maroon in color", Wunderlich told the news outlet, adding: "This vehicle and the missing person's vehicle are similar but, at this time, we are unable to confirm its the same vehicle".

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