Following a gathering at a campground in Northern California, 16-year-old Kiely Rodni vanished, prompting a search effort by friends, family, and law enforcement.
According to the Placer County Sheriff’s Office, Kiely was at the Prosser Family Campground on Friday night and vanished somewhere around 12:30 a.m. on Saturday.
Because we haven’t been able to find her vehicle, we are currently considering her absence as an abduction, according to sheriff’s spokesperson Angela Musallam.
Authorities are searching for Kiely’s silver 2013 Honda CRV and claim that since the party, her phone has not worked. White, 5′ 7″, and weighing around 118 pounds, Kiely. She has a nose ring, hazel eyes, and blonde hair. A black tank top and slacks from the Dickies brand were the last things seen on Kiely.
At the party, which was held in a wooded area, there were 200–300 children, according to Musallam, who added that “someone knows something.”
We are begging and appealing with everybody who attended that party to come forward, she said.
How no one saw the teen depart is a mystery to Kiely’s loved ones, according to CNN affiliate KCRA.
“It’s just unbelievable. People were everywhere around this location, including seated in automobiles, so there must have been just one person there “Sammi Smith, a friend of Kiely’s, told KCRA.
The grounds are located 36 miles from Reno, Nevada, and roughly 17 miles from Lake Tahoe.
A total of 150 law enforcement personnel, including the FBI, search and rescue teams, canines, and more than 100 volunteers, are searching the vicinity of the last known whereabouts of Rodni.
According to Placer County Sheriff Troy Sander on Tuesday, “there is no evidence that supports an abduction, but we are not ruling anything out.” “Nothing will be ruled out. This is a search and rescue situation involving missing people.”
The Placer County Sheriff’s Office conducted a search helicopter flight over the region on Monday.
Kiely and her vehicle are still missing despite the extensive use of our resources, according to the sheriff’s office. As we continue our search for Kiely, we are now cooperating with the California Highway Patrol, Truckee Police, FBI, and Nevada County Sheriff’s Office.
Lindsey Rodni-Nieman, Kiely’s mother, said the wait has been trying.
“I’m afraid and my head is spinning all over the place. Bad ideas may be incredibly powerful and difficult to overcome “KCRA was told by Rodni-Nieman. But I’m trying to maintain optimism that we’ll find her and that she’ll return home.
FindKiely.com was created by friends and family to aid in the hunt. A GoFundMe page has also been set up to fund a reward for information leading to Kiely’s safe return.
