The Mendocino County Sheriff's Office says that search crews found the body of the last missing family member at around 4PM on Monday - that of 12-year-old Siddhant Thottapilly. Siddhant's body was found submerged in the Eel River about 6 miles (9.6 kilometers) downstream from where the family auto reportedly crashed, Mendocino County Sheriff's Office Capt. Gregory L. Van Patten said in a statement.

The boy's mother, Soumya Thottapilly, 38, was found on Friday some way from the crash site in an area previously covered with water from the storm-swollen river. Numerous personal items were recovered by search personnel and with the help of family members, it was confirmed those recovered items belonged to members of the missing Thottapilly family. He was the last to be found, ABC-owned TV station KABC cited the authorities as saying. The Thottapillys were on a road trip to OR and were returning to their home in California, when the tragedy struck. They, however, failed to show up at the friend's place on April 6 and were officially declared as missing on April 8.
