I've apologised to everyone. Yeah I've made a big mess' he said speaking to the media after he was found when he waved a boat down just after midday

Finally, late on Thursday, the highway patrol said there had been no sign of the missing people, but the recovered objects - the vehicle parts and personal items - were confirmed by family members as belonging to the Thottapillys.

Authorities said that a vehicle, which witnesses identified as possibly a Honda Pilot SUV, vanished after falling into the rain-swollen Eel River in Mendocino County around 1 p.m. Friday.

Sandeep Thottapilly, his wife Soumya and two children - Siddhanth and Saachi - were on a road trip in a maroon Honda Pilot from Portloand in OR to San Jose in Southern California when a storm made its landfall in Northern California, CBS reported.

The incident happened on US Highway 101 at the Eel River, near mile post marker 95, he said, a couple of miles north of Leggett.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, weather conditions in the area improved enough for a search team to enter the river on inflatable boats and use poles to probe the water.

A family of four is missing in California, and authorities concern they may have pushed into the Eel River whereas on a road journey.

Personal belongings of a missing Santa Clarita family have been found along a Northern California river where it is believed they may have been swept away in heavy rains.

"The Mendocino County Sheriff's Office has been in contact with numerous other county dive teams and technical rescue responders that can be called upon, when the vehicle is located, to assist with recovery of the vehicle", the office said.

The family was traveling in a Maroon Honda Pilot. "Some of these items were consistent with a Honda vehicle".

The California Highway Patrol received a report around 1:10 p.m. last Friday that a auto went over a steep embankment on U.S. Highway 101 south of Dora Creek just north of Leggett.

"The teams were unsuccessful in locating the vehicle or any occupants from the vehicle", Wunderlich wrote in his update.

Once the vehicle is recovered, the California Highway Patrol will conduct a complete mechanical inspection of the vehicle as part of the accident investigation.

The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office also assisted, using a sonar system. The family was scheduled to arrive to visit a friend in the San Jose area on April 6, but never showed up, authorities said.

Farther south alongside the Mendocino County coast, authorities proceed to seek for members of the Hart family, missing since an SUV made a deadly and presumably intentional plunge off a towering ocean bluff alongside the Pacific Coast Freeway closing month.

Sheriff's authorities initially stated that the body belonged to a child, but then later corrected their initial report, stating that the body was in fact that of an adult female.
