The disappearance of teen Kiely Rodni remains a mystery
From California 16-year-old Kiely Rodni has been missing for 10 days after she failed to return from a large “senior send-off” party at a campground close to Lake Tahoe.
A video recording from the night Rodni vanished has been obtained, according to the Placer County Sheriff’s Office. According to them, it depicts her wearing different attire than what was originally thought to be on her.
Last week, according to detectives, Kiely borrowed a hoodie with a song lyric on the front . The new video has provided them with the latest information.
An photograph of a pink and white hoodie reading “odd future” was published by authorities. A video allegedly showing Rodni wearing one of them was shot on August 5.
They have not stopped hunting for details regarding the hours that followed.
Lt. Josh Barnhart of the Placer County Sheriff’s Office said during a press conference on Monday, “If anyone has more video, no information is too small.” They are also looking for further accounts from witnesses at the party.
On the morning of August 6th, around 12:30 AM, Rodni was last seen at the Prosser Family Campground, where a large group of young people (about 200-300) were having a party.
Searchers found what they thought was a dog burial site near the campground on Friday.
Rodni’s phone was last seen near the lake, but neither she nor her 2013 Honda CR-V have been located despite extensive search efforts. After 10 days of looking, authorities have announced plans to reduce their efforts.
Captain Sam Brown of the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office put the amount of manpower spent thus far at “something like 9,000 manhours… which is astronomical.”
Daniel Rodni, Rodni’s father, expresses his appreciation for the search efforts and the $25,000 gift to the reward fund
According to him, the past 10 days have been nothing but agony.
“Every day is a roller coaster. Emotions are out of control,” Daniel Rodni said.
The teen’s mother, Lindsey Rodni-Nieman, has issued an impassioned plea for anyone who witnessed the incident to come forward.
“It’s hard to be courageous. It’s OK to be scared. We promise you that you won’t get in any trouble,” Lindsey Rodni-Nieman said.
