Body, car found in Prosser Lake near where Kiely Rodni went missing

Date:

A body and car have been found in a Truckee lake where authorities and diving teams have spent the past two weeks searching for 16-year-old missing teenager Kiely Rodni. Footage from LiveCopter 3 shows the car being pulled from the Prosser Creek Reservoir Sunday evening and tarpaulins pulled out to cover the vehicle. Police have not confirmed that the remains belong to Rodni. The Placer County Sheriff’s Office said it was on site to investigate the diving team’s findings, along with officials from the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office, the FBI and other agencies. There will be a press conference at 11 a.m. Monday in the Truckee-Donner Recreation and Park District. A representative of Rodni’s family told KCRA 3 that the family had nothing to say until they were notified by the police. The special search and recovery dive team called Adventures With Purpose (AWP) began searching for the teen on Friday. They confirmed to KCRA 3 that a matching vehicle description with human remains was found at Prosser Creek Reservoir. Rodni was last seen on Aug. 6 at a large party with hundreds of teens the same age at the Prosser Family Campground in Truckee, which is located next to the lake. The teenager apparently disappeared without a trace. Authorities said the last known ping from Rodni’s mobile was made near the lake around 12:30 p.m. the same night. Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Adventures With Purpose posted on Facebook about its findings. By 4:50 p.m., KCRA 3 arrived at the scene and saw law enforcement activity there. The vehicle was recovered from the water around 7:49 PM. Adventures With Purpose told KCRA 3 that their team uses sonar, which is probably why they found the car in the same location that agencies searched with their boats. Hours earlier on Sunday morning, the Placer County Sheriff’s Office said seven staff members had been assigned to Rodni’s case. That was less than 73 staff on Friday. Seven helicopters searched an 80-mile radius from where Kiely was last seen. About 2,000 tips from the community have been sent to authorities. The FBI had also added Rodni to their missing persons database.| Video below | Friend of Kiely Rodni hopeful in finding missing teen Who are the Adventures With Purpose team?
