The family was driving down to San Jose in Southern California from Portland, Oregon.

They were reported missing on April 8 when they failed to show up for a visit at their relatives place in San Jose.

Bodies of two members of a family - which went missing in the United States last week while travelling from OR to California - have been found inside their SUV, which was submerged in Eel River.

The search and rescue teams in the United States recovered the bodies of two more members of the Indian American family that had gone missing while travelling from OR to California about 10 days ago.

"Searchers subsequently recovered the bodies of Sandeep Thottapilly and Saachi Thottapilly from inside the vehicle", the Sheriff Office said adding that the autopsies are expected to be performed this week as part of the coroner's investigation into the incident.

A team of more than 20 searchers discovered the auto lying submerged between 4 and 6 feet of water and found the bodies inside the vehicle, the sheriff's office said.

This is a boost from Cisco Systems's previous quarterly dividend of $0.29. (NASDAQ: CSCO ) could be one that ticks all the boxes. The company's shares were given away at $45.37 per share worth to an income of some $550,157 on account of Burns M Michele .

On Sunday, 70 searchers using Jet Skis, boats and kayaks worked along the river in an ongoing effort to find the vehicle and family.

Soumya Thottapilly was found in an area previously covered with water from the storm-swollen river. The family was last heard from in the town of Klamath, Del Norte County, on April 5.

The Mendocino County Sheriff's Office said the initial discovery was made on Sunday, as searchers were scouring the Eel River in Legget, California.

Soon thereafter, search divers entered the water and were able to feel what they believed to be a person inside of the vehicle.

The Klamath River and a string of state and federal redwood parks lie along USA 101, north of where motorists saw the vehicle fall into the Eel River. Authorities said they found "various personal items consistent with a family traveling on vacation" during the course of the two-day search.

Farther south, authorities were still looking for the missing members of a different family whose SUV plunged off a towering ocean bluff along the Pacific Coast Highway last month. In that case, Jennifer and Sarah Hart and three of their six children were found dead at the scene and three other children remain missing.
