California SUV crash victim said her moms were 'racist'

Opelousas family loses home in early morning storms

Dive teams have found auto parts and personal items belonging to a missing Valencia family whose vehicle fell into a North California river, the California Highway Patrol said Thursday. Also located were various personal items that were consistent with a family traveling on vacation.

Berkowitz attempted to go down the embankment 15 to 20 feet and recalls saying, "And so I'm yelling, 'hello, hello, anyone there?'" Authorities say the SUV matches the description of the vehicle the Thottapilly family was traveling in, which was a maroon/burgundy 2016 Honda Pilot with California license plate 7MMX138.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, rescue teams pressed on with a search along the river bank, the highway patrol's local branch in Garberville said. "Last known location is around Klamath - Redwood National Park Area" in Northern California near the OR border.

A family of four is missing in California, and authorities fear they may have driven into the Eel River while on a road trip.

A family of four from Santa Clarita (Los Angeles County) had been reported missing and their travel plans - from Klamath, near the border between California and OR, to San Jose - lined up with where the auto was found, Taylor said.

The family was traveling as a strong storm dumped rain on Northern California.

Crews have not yet actually located the vehicle or its occupants.

Trump now less likely to sit for Mueller interview
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham warned in January that if Trump tries to fire Mueller, "it would be the end of his presidency". Trump could fire him as well and repeat the process through the line of succession until someone does as he says.

The personal belongings of a Santa Clarita family of four missing since last week have been found in a Northern California river, authorities said. Because of the high swift waters, no recovery of the vehicle was possible and authorities judged that rescue operations would not be safe.

According to the highway patrol, the teams accessed the river in inflatable boats and on "River Boards", a small floatation device created to allow full access under overhanging trees or tight areas not accessible by boat.

They were expected to get to a family member's home in San Jose on April 6, but did not show up.

The family didn't arrive for a scheduled stopover at a relative's house in San Jose April 6. "They were able to locate numerous items that appeared to have come from a vehicle body and interior", reported Mendocino County Sheriff Office Lt. Sharon Barney April 12. On their return on April 5, they spoke of plans to stop and visit relatives in San Jose the following day, the San Jose Police Department said in a statement. The California Highway Patrol said this week that a submerged vehicle had been spotted but then lost in the current.

Meanwhile, Sandeep Thottapilly's father, Babu Subramaniam Thottapilly, who lives in Surat, Gujarat, has taken to Twitter to plead for help from Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj. They "suddenly stopped communicating with family in Valencia" last Thursday, and a notice of the family's absence was posted Monday on Facebook as a "Missing" poster.

Sandeep Thottapilly is a vice president at Union Bank in Los Angeles, Calif.
