Kiely Rodni missing - live: Boyfriend reveals his last words to teen before Truckee campground party
·25 min read

The desperate search for missing teen Kiely Rodni who disappeared after a party at a California campground has entered its fifth day.

Kiely, 16, was last seen around 12.30am on 6 August near the Prosser Family Campground in Truckee, where she attended an allegedly alcohol-fuelled gathering of more than 200 teens and young adults.

An investigation was launched by the Placer County Sheriff’s Office the next morning after Kiely failed to show up for a hike with friends.

The case is being treated as an abduction because Kiely’s car is unaccounted for. More than 260 personnel have been canvassing the area on the ground and in the air.

Investigators say they don’t have any new leads, but still suspect someone in the community knows more.

“We believe that someone knows,” Nevada County Sheriff’s Office captain Sam Brown told a Wednesday press conference. “Someone saw her but they’re not coming forward.”

Meanwhile Kiely’s boyfriend revealed some of his final words to her: “Be safe. Don’t like, do anything stupid.”

A teen-to-teen meet-up will be held at local high school Incline Village High on Thursday afternoon as young people who attended the party are urged to share any information that could help in the search for Kiely Rodni.

The meetup will run from 5pm to 7.30pm local time.

According to the website FindKiely.com, set up by her loved ones in the search for the missing teen, the event is a “safe space” and will be teen-led with parents and law enforcement officers not present for the meeting.

“This is a space for anyone at the party who wants to come and share anything they remember. Any information is helpful,” the website states.

“This is a teen-led event & safe space for students to share Information from the Prosser party. Parents and LEO will not be inside for the gathering.”

Law enforcement officials have called on all teenagers who attended the party to come forward with any information no matter how big or small, reassuring them that they are not interested in investigating underage drinking or partying and just want to bring the missing teen home safe.

Kiely’s friend, Samantha, said that they had been drinking at the party and Kiely was evidently intoxicated.

“She was in no state to drive and she wouldn’t have made it far or would have crashed,” Samantha told The Independent on Monday.

She also told ABC that she had shared all drinks with Kiely.

“She was having fun at the party, just being a teenager,” she told the outlet. “Everything she drank, I drank out of.”

“This was right about when I left when we had the last contact.”

Jagger said he went on to complain about his day and a few hours later she replied: “Oh, I’m sorry that you’re going through that.”

Police have no new leads on missing California teen as hunt continues

03:50 , Josh Marcus

Northern California police don’t have any new evidence about the mysterious weekend disappearance of teen Kiely Rodni, but they believe “someone knows” what happened to the 16-year-old, even as cadaver dogs have joined the search.

“We believe that someone knows,” Nevada County Sheriff’s Office captain Sam Brown said during a press conference on Wednesday. “Someone saw her but they’re not coming forward.”

Officials said they were dismayed that their hunt for Kiely—which has now roped in multiple police departments, nearly 50 FBI agents, cadaver dogs, helicopters, search-and-rescue divers, and helicopter sweeps—still hasn’t yielded any new information.

“We do not have any new leads, and that I can tell you is very frustrating for us,” Josh Barnhart of the Placer County Sheriff’s Office said during the briefing.

As Kiely Rodni investigation continues, Gabby Petito story does too

Thursday 11 August 2022 00:50 , Josh Marcus

Before Kiely Rodni disappeared over the weekend in Northern California, another missings person case involving a young woman in a rural area got the nation’s attention.

After a nationwide manhunt, Gabby Petito’s remains were found near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming last September, the victim of a strangling from her boyfriend Brian Laundrie, who later took his own life.

But the sad story of Petito does not end there.

The vlogger’s family recently filed a $50m wrongul wrongful death lawsuit against police in Moab, Utah, accusing them of negligence that led to the the 22-year-old’s death.

The lawsuit accuses the police department, three Moab police officers and 10 other unnamed individuals of “negligent failure” during an investigation into an alleged assault by Brian Laundrie of the 22-year-old a few weeks before her death.
