CTN NEWS – Kiely Rodni, 16, was last seen attending a campground party in northern California almost three weeks ago, and authorities believe the submerged vehicle on Sunday is her body.
Kiely was at the Prosser Family Campground on August 5 and was last seen around 12:30 a.m. on August 6, according to the Placer County Sheriff’s Office.
Law enforcement initially treated her disappearance as a possible abduction because they “had nothing to go on.”
