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

On Sunday, 70 searchers using Jet Skis, boats and kayaks worked along the river in an ongoing effort to find the vehicle and family. The searchers began to probe the water and located a vehicle submerged approximately 4-6 feet beneath the water, according to van Patten.

Several items have been positively identified by family members as belonging to the Thottapilly family, the sheriff's statement said, adding that the items are of a personal nature and will not be described at this time. While searching the vehicle, they felt what they believed to be a person. Their last known location was near Klamath near the OR border.

Investigators said that vehicle may have been intentionally driven off the cliff.
