Personal items of a missing Valencia family and part of a vehicle have been found in a flooded Northern California river Thursday.

Crews are currently searching the swollen Eel River, going 12 miles without finding the red Honda Pilot that the family were last seen in. Eventually, parts of the vehicle were found along with personal belongings.

The family, Sandeep Thottapilly, his wife Soumya, 38, and the couple’s two children, 12-year-old Siddhant and his 9-year-old sister Saachi, began a trip to Portland, Oregon from their Valencia home on March 30.

However, the family never made it to Oregon, and were reported missing. Police believe that their vehicle went over the edge of Highway 101.
