duo who had been missing from the Nethravati bridge here since February 16 have been found washed ashore at Mattu beach at Katapady in Udupi district, police said.
It was a case of suicide.
The bodies, in a decomposed state, were identified by relatives who were informed by the police on Friday.
Mumbai-based hotelier Gopalakrishna Rai (45), a native of Bantwal in Dakshina Kannada district, and his six- year-old son Aneesh Rai had gone missing from their house since the early hours of February 16.
Their car was later found abandoned near the Nethravati bridge and a note was recovered from the vehicle, saying they were jumping into the river.
Police had made intensive search operations in the river for five days which yielded no result.
Rais family had come from Mumbai to attend a religious ceremony and the two had left the place early in the morning when the function was still on.
Rais wife Ashwini did not accompany them.
The bodies are now kept at the Ajjarkad government hospital mortuary, the police said.
