A search team on a boat smelled gasoline about a half-mile (1 kilometer) downstream from where the crash was reported and found the Honda Pilot underwater, authorities said. Two days earlier, the body of 38-year-old Soumya Thottapilly was pulled from the river. Crews partially removed the auto with a tow truck and recovered the bodies, the sheriff's office said.

Five members of the family were found dead at the bottom of the cliff-married couple Jennifer and Sarah Hart and three adopted children, Markis, 19, Jeremiah, 14, and Abigail, 14-after a motorist saw the remains of the SUV on March 26 in Northern California.

Inside were the bodies of Sandeep Thottapilly, 41, and 9-year-old Saachi Thottapilly.

The office says 70 searchers combed the area, including more than 20 crew members searching the water in Jet Skis, boats and kayaks.

On April 6, witnesses reported seeing a similar-looking vehicle falling off a steep embankment and into the Eel River off U.S. Route 101 near Leggett, a small camping and hiking destination in Northern California, authorities said.

They had been traveling from Portland, Ore., and were supposed to meet with relatives in San Jose the following day before going back to their home in Santa Clarita, Calif., just outside Los Angeles.

"Search divers entered the water and were able to feel what they believed to be a person inside of the vehicle", the sheriff's department said in a press release.

Investigators have found and identified the bodies of three family members who vanished while on a road trip from OR to California.

Sandeep was a Vice-President at Union Bank, while Soumya was a stay-at-home parent. They were reported missing when they failed to arrive at a relative's home in San Jose for a Friday stopover.

Jennifer Hart, who was driving the SUV that careened off a California cliff killing herself, her wife and six kids in a tragedy that police now believe was intentional, was drunk, according to toxicology reports.

On April 9, a body of a girl was discovered near the wreckage that could be one of the two missing girls from the crash.
