Authorities have been probing for Kiely Rodni, 16, for approximately two weeks after she disappeared from a gathering on August 6 from Tahoe National Forest. To its latest development, an autonomous dive search group has claimed to have found Kiely’s dead body.
On August 15, the group said that they would assist with Rodni’s case. The group typically accepts cold cases, not on-going inquiries.
The group wrote on Facebook that Kiely’s car is upside down in water and that they have established that she is inside. Though, law enforcement is yet to openly approve the news. The dive group said that the license plate of the vehicle matches what was earlier released by cops.
WE JUST FOUND KIELY RODNI… 🙏🏻😭 ==== Car is upside down in only 14' of water. We have CONFIRMED Kiely is inside….Posted by Adventures With Purpose on Sunday, 21 August 2022
Kiely was last seen on Aug. 6, 2022, nearby the Prosser Family Campground in Truckee around 12:30 AM and her car was also testified missing.
Cops faced a tough time in receiving info from attendees at a party Kiely joined since there were more than 100 juveniles. Several were worried they could get charged over unlawful action and they would be taken out of college and this will destroy their future.
This afternoon, we were notified by volunteer search group Adventures with Purpose they have found a car and a body in the Prosser Reservoir. @NevadaCountySheriff,#PCSO, FBI, and other allied agencies are at the scene to investigate the findings.

There was a reward of $50,000 being offered to anyone with information that could help find Kiely. The family created a website and GoFundMe page to help find her and to raise funds for their search efforts.
