Bride's Missing Dad Is Found Dead
Prasad Moparti   (Sacramento County Sheriff's Department)

A sad ending to the story about a father who went missing on his daughter's wedding day: The body of 55-year-old Prasad Moparti has been found in a river a few miles from the wedding site in Walnut Grove, Calif., reports the Los Angeles Times. Foul play isn't suspected, reports the Sacramento Bee. Moparti suffered from depression and he'd been seen walking away from the wedding on Feb. 13. Family members didn't think much of it at the time because Moparti—who lives in India but had been visiting his daughter in the US since January—was also an avid walker. (More father stories.)
