The choreographer had long concealed the fact of her pregnancy

The family was officially reported as missing to the San Jose Police Department on April 8.

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.

Kathua rape/murder case: SC asks J&K govt to protect victim's family, lawyer
Immediately after the brief hearing in the sessions court, the seven accused were shifted back to jail under heavy security. Among the accused in the Kathua rape murder case, there is a juvenile against whom a separate charge sheet was filed.

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

The family members were travelling from Portland, Oregon, to their home in the Los Angeles suburb of Santa Clarita.

The Klamath River and a string of parks lie along Highway 101, north of where motorists saw the SUV fall into the river.

A powerful storm dropped 2 to 5 inches (5 to 13 centimetres) of rain the day the family went missing. Authorities later confirmed that the auto did belong to the family.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is reportedly contributing to the search operations launched to locate the Indian family that has been missing for over a week in California. The crash killed a married couple, Jennifer Jean Hart and Sarah Margaret Hart, both 38, and at least three of their six children. Investigators said that vehicle may have been intentionally driven off the cliff.

The captain noted that the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office Coroner's Division identified on April 15 the body it had found two days earlier as Soumya Somanath Thottapilly.
