The cops confirmed that the body of Kiely Rodni was found in a reservoir
Nevada County law enforcement recently released a statement regarding the disappearance of young Californian Kiely Rodni.
They confirmed that Rodni’s body was recovered from the submerged car in Prosser Lake over the weekend.
The Placer County Sheriff’s Office took to Facebook to update people on the case.
They wrote, “The Nevada County Sheriff-Coroner has identified the decedent as 16-year-old Kiely Rodni, of Truckee.”
They also added, ‘The Placer County Sheriff’s Office and the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office are in communication with Kiely’s family. We offer them our deepest condolences at this extremely difficult time.’
The announcement comes after the Adventures With Purpose specialty dive team discovered a sunken vehicle in Prosser Creek Reservoir near Truckee.
The volunteer group is a popular search and rescue dive team that helps families locate their missing loved ones.
Nevada County Sheriff’s Capt. Sam Brown said the car overturned and was nearly 14 feet below the surface of the pond.
He also added that the cops had searched the reservoir before and gave more than ‘15,000 hours of work’ in the investigation.
More on the disappearance and eventual death of Kiely Rodni
Kiely Rodni appears to have disappeared from a camping party in Prosser about three weeks ago on August 16th. The party was held to celebrate the high school graduation and included more than 100 guests.
Rodni last texted her mother around 12:30 in the morning informing her that she was on her way back home to Truckee.
Meanwhile, Rodni’s family released a statement on Monday to thank everyone for their support during the search.
They shared, ‘We faced a storm of incomprehensible force, and it is purely thanks to the army of warriors, matriarchs, healers, and helpers that is keeping us standing today.’
The statement went on to mention, ‘While we accept this sadness cast under the shadow of death, the rising sun shines light on us, reminding us not to mourn our loss, but to celebrate the spirit of Kiely and the gift we all received in knowing her. Kiely will definitely stay with us even though we won’t get her back.’
Despite this, the sheriff’s office has yet to reveal the reason behind Rodni’s death. They claimed that the investigation is still ongoing.
