After a vast two-week search effort by multiple organizations, a volunteer team of divers on Sunday said it had located the vehicle and presumed body of Kiely Rodni, a Northern California teen who had been missing since early August and was last seen at a large party near Truckee.

“Car is upside down in only 14 (feet) of water” at Prosser Reservoir, Adventures with Purpose announced in a Facebook post just after 2:30 p.m. “We have CONFIRMED Kiely is inside.

“Family Notified. Law Enforcement on their way.”

The Nevada County Sheriff’s Office in a social media post shortly after 3:30 p.m. said it was “aware of this information” and that deputies were “en route to meet with Adventures With Purpose.”

“We will provide additional information when it becomes available,” sheriff’s officials wrote.

Kiely disappeared around 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 6 after attending a party of between 200 and 300 teens and young adults at Prosser Family Campground, located within Tahoe National Forest, according to Placer County Sheriff’s Office and Nevada County Sheriff’s Office.

Search parties including volunteers and law enforcement officials over the past two weeks have undertaken massive search efforts for her and her vehicle, a silver Honda CR-V, which also had not been seen since the night of the party. Earlier Sunday, the Sheriff’s Office in a social media post said personnel had combined for nearly 20,000 hours of search time.

Adventures with Purpose is an “underwater sonar search and recovery dive team helping families locate missing loved ones underwater,” according to its verified Facebook page. Its YouTube page has more than 2 million subscribers.

Law enforcement officials as of 3:30 p.m. had not confirmed the dive team’s discovery.

“We will be on scene the rest of the day, will have a live stream tomorrow, and will make an announcement as to what time later this afternoon,” Adventures with Purpose’s Facebook post continued.

Placer sheriff’s officials on Aug. 7, the day after her disappearance, posted a video showing Kiely’s mother tearfully pleading for the community’s help, and for her daughter to come home.

Detectives investigated the possibility Kiely had been abducted. Placer County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Angela Musallam said this was part of the agency’s protocol because her vehicle was also missing.

From local sheriff’s offices to the FBI, authorities received more than 1,800 citizen tips regarding Kiely’s disappearance, according to a Sunday morning update from Placer authorities.
