Kiely Rodni’s search team finds a body and a car in the lake

A search party looking for Kiely Rodni, 16, found a body and a car in a lake. Rodni has been missing for over two weeks.

According Adventures with Purpose Facebook post, the car believed to be Rodni’s was found upside down and 14 feet from Prosser Lake. A body believed to be Rodni was found inside.

Adventure with Purpose has notified law enforcement but the identity of the body is yet to be confirmed.

The Nevada County Sheriff’s Office confirms that they are aware of Adventure with Purpose’s findings and that personnel are heading to Prosser Lake.

“We will provide additional information as it becomes available,” the sheriff’s office said Sunday.

Rodni was last seen near the Prosser Family Campground in Truckee, Calif., shortly after midnight on August 6. It is believed that she was attending a party with over 100 minors and young adults.

On August 7, Rodni’s disappearance was treated as a possible kidnapping since his car, a 2013 Honda CRV, was also missing.

More than 14 agencies, including the California Highway Patrol, FBI, Homeland Security, Truckee Police Department and Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, have joined the Placer County Sheriff’s Office and the Nevada County to help locate Rodni.

The agencies used different search methods, including aerial searches from helicopters, motorcycles, ATVs, K9s and even boats, to search for nearby bodies of water.

A $50,000 reward was offered for any information leading to Rodni’s whereabouts.
