TRUCKEE, California– The body and car of Kiely Rodni, the 16-year-old girl who was reported missing after a party near a California campground, are said to have been found Sunday, according to a search and rescue group.
Adventures With Purpose posted on Facebook that they found Rodni’s car in Prosser Lake.
“Remains were found inside which are believed to be those of missing 16-year-old teenager Kiely Rodni,” the Post reads.
According to the Facebook post, the car was found 14 feet in the water, just a few hundred yards from the campsite where the teen was last seen on August 6.
The Nevada County Sheriff’s Department in the Truckee area of California confirmed to ABC News that their teams are now on the ground with Adventures With Purpose. They know there is a vehicle underwater, but the sheriff’s team has not yet confirmed that it is Rodni’s vehicle or that her body is inside.
Placer County directed the search for Rodni, but the reservoir and lake area is across the border north of Truckee, Nevada County.
Adventures With Purpose is a dive team dedicated to helping families of missing loved ones.
This is an evolving story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
