Teen's Body Found In CA Lake After Massive Search

Law enforcement officials believe the body found in a submerged vehicle Sunday is "more than likely" that of Kiely Rodni, the missing 16-year-old last seen almost three weeks ago at a campground party in Northern California, CNN reports. Rodni was at the Prosser Family Campground on August 5 and was last seen around 12:30 a.m. August 6, the Placer County Sheriff's Office said. Her disappearance was treated as a possible abduction, which police explained was because they "had nothing to go on."

Nevada County Sheriff Shannan Moon said the body "was located within a search zone that we have been searching since the very beginning of our operation." The vehicle was located by volunteer dive group Adventures with Purpose, who often join underwater searches, Moon said. It was found upside down about 14 feet beneath the lake's surface, which has dropped about 3 feet since the teen first disappeared. ,Multiple agencies contributed to the search over the last two weeks, including dive teams and swimmers who also scanned the lake with side-scan sonar. There were up to 300 juveniles at the party, which was in a wooded area 17 miles north of Lake Tahoe and 36 miles from Reno, Nv.
