In light of the fact that an 11-day search for missing Truckee teen Kiely Rodni near Prosser Reservoir has come to a standstill due to a lack of fresh information, it will be scaled back.
Josh Barnhart, a detective with the Placer County Sheriff’s Office, said that after this week, the organisations involved in the investigation will set up a task force to exchange any fresh information. As opposed to having many persons work on the investigation continuously, the agencies would alternate between investigating tips.
After attending a party at the Prosser Family Campgrounds near the mountain town of Truckee, located 35 miles west of Reno, Kiely, 16, vanished early on the morning of August 6th.
When her phone was last turned on at 12:33 a.m. on August 6, police stated there had been no evidence of Kiely or her silver 2013 Honda CRV. The phone showed a nearby water location, but authorities noted that does not necessarily indicate that she was last close or in the water.
Numerous searches were conducted throughout the investigation at Prosser Reservoir by hundreds of law enforcement personnel, including the FBI. Additionally, Prosser and the adjoining Boca and Stampede reservoirs have been searched by volunteers.
In Reno and the area of Lake Tahoe, hundreds of missing posters have been up in both English and Spanish.
According to Captain Sam Brown of the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office, “Our search continues, and we are doing all we can to move things in a good direction.”
Finding Kiely Rodni has always been our main objective, according to Brown.
He exhorted everyone to search the area for anything that could provide details to the missing honours student, who graduated from a Truckee charter high school in June. According to him, volunteers looking in places where law enforcement has looked may find something different.
In addition to stating that law officers searched in the areas near the party, Brown said investigators aren’t giving specifics on where they searched.
The man claimed, “We don’t have a direction or notion of where to go anyway.
Police are frustrated that there aren’t many good leads and that just a few of the 200–300 partygoers are coming forward with information.
New developments in the search:
- Following a $25,000 anonymous gift, the reward for information leading to Kiely’s capture rose from $50,000 to $75,000 in value.
- The new sweater Kiely was wearing in a fresh video they obtained from the campground party was seen in an image that was published by the Placer County Sheriff’s Office. Along with another sweater she borrowed at the gathering, Kiely was also seen wearing a black body suit with thin straps in a shop security camera image.
- According to law enforcement, releasing images from the party or images of Kiely there might affect the investigation.
- Last weekend, a dog was discovered in a little cemetery not far from Prosser Reservoir. Immediately after the burial was discovered, law authorities said that it was unrelated to the missing adolescent and immediately blocked off the area.
