Drunk, drugged and possibly on the run: The Hart family's final

Drunk, drugged and possibly on the run: The Hart family's final

The Thottapilly family, Sandeep, his wife Soumya, 38, and their two children, 12-year-old Siddhant and his 9-year-old sister Saachi, embarked on a trip to Portland, Oregon from their Valencia residence on March 30.

The mother of the family and the either two or three children who live in the house were out as well when the fire started, so there were no injuries.

The vehicle itself and the four members of the Thottapilly family have not been recovered from the Eel River, which remains too unsafe for divers to enter, but searchers along the banks located numerous items consistent with a Honda vehicle and interior, and items consistent with a family traveling on vacation, the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

Check back for updates on this developing story.

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.

The body was found by rescuers in the United States during the search for the family of four who were feared drowned in a swollen river in California.


The body of a young child has been discovered along a Northern Calfornia river by teams searching for a missing family whose SUV crashed into the rain-swollen waterway last week, authorities said Friday.

The body was found on Friday on an exposed terrain which appeared to have covered by the Eel River within the last few days as a result of a recent weather storm which brought heavy rain to the area. The search teams were able to cover approximately 12 miles of river bank by foot and 60 miles by helicopter. They used an underwater probe to see if the vehicle or anything metallic could be located. The items found from the river have identified positive by the family members.

Searchers also found items described as consistent with a family traveling on vacation and unspecified personal items that allowed officials to confirm that the vehicle seen plunging into the river was the Thottapilly's SUV.

"Some of these items were consistent with a Honda vehicle".

Preliminary toxicology tests found Jennifer Hart had an alcohol level of 0.102, said California Patrol Capt. Bruce Carpenter.

Sandeep, originally from Kerala, grew up in Surat city in Gujarat and settled down in the United States over 15 years ago.
