Walnut Grove – Deputies have suspended their search for a man who travelled from India to Northern California to attend his daughter's wedding celebration and went missing during the reception.

The Sacramento Sheriff's Department said on Tuesday they have indefinitely suspended their search for 55-year-old Prasad Moparti, who disappeared on Saturday.

It says deputies searched by ground and air and in the water in the area around the event hall in the Sacramento Delta where the reception was held.

Authorities say family members reported Moparti missing after he left on foot from the reception and never returned.

They say Moparti had arrived in the United States in January and is not familiar with the area.

Family members told authorities Moparti suffered from depression and had seemed depressed leading up to the wedding.

The Sheriff's Department says there is no evidence of foul play.
