Indian Father Disappears During Daughter's Wedding Reception

Newlyweds Durga Moparti and Rajesh Gutta have spent the past three days frantically searching for the bride's father. He vanished from the wedding reception on Saturday.

Prasad Moparti, 55, was last seen by family members walking down a road outside the Grand Island Mansion in Walnut Grove where the wedding was held. He traveled to California from India last month to walk his daughter down the aisle. His family says he was feeling depressed and homesick.

He was last seen around 4 p.m. Saturday, walking at a fast pace towards a nearby bridge. He has not been seen or heard from since. The family hopes he will be found alive.

The newlyweds have postponed their honeymoon to San Francisco to search for Prasad. The Sacramento Sheriff's Department also scoured the Sacramento River by boat. In addition, a dive team and cadaver dogs are
being used to help find him.

Mr. Moparti is described as being 5'10" and weighing 180 pounds. He was also wearing traditional Indian dress in a brown/gold colored top with a cream-colored undergarment.
