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

The body of a 12-year-old boy was found in a California river, 6 miles away from where the rest of his family was found dead.

Searchers have found the bodies of a missing Valencia father and daughter in a flooded Northern California river, sheriff's officials announced Monday.

Search crews from multiple local law enforcement agencies have been trying to retrieve the vehicle, including the Southern Humboldt Technical Rescue; the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office Boat Team; the California Highway Patrol Helicopter based in Redding, California; the Piercy Fire Department; the Leggett Valley Fire Department; the Swift Water Component Teams; the Little Lake Fire Department, the Ukiah Valley Fire Department, and the Hopland Fire Department. The searchers began to probe the water and located a vehicle submerged approximately 4-6 feet beneath the water, according to van Patten. Once recovered the body was identified by family members.

It was encased in sediment from the river current, but divers were able to feel a person inside.

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.

Dozens of searchers had been combing the river with Jet Skis, boats and kayaks, along with dive teams. The family was last heard from in the town of Klamath, Del Norte County, on April 5.

The family was traveling from Portland to their home in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Clarita. He grew up in Surat, Gujarat, and settled down in the U.S. over 15 years ago, a relative said.

The Klamath River and a string of state and federal redwood parks lie along U.S. 101, north of where motorists saw the vehicle fall into the Eel River.

The External Affairs Ministry of India said on April 12 that Indian Consulate in San Franscisco is trying its best to trace the missing family. Authorities later confirmed that the vehicle did belong to the family.

Sarah and Jennifer Hart and their six adopted children were believed to be in the SUV at the time. Investigators said that vehicle may have been intentionally driven off the cliff. A body was pulled from the surf April 7 but has not been identified.
