California officials discuss search for Kiely Rodni

The mother of Kiely Rodni has said an Amber Alert should have been “been issued immediately” as the desperate search to find her missing 16-year-old daughter entered the sixth day.

Kiely 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. Meer as 260 personnel have been canvassing the area on the ground and in the air and more than 500 tips have been received from the public.

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

Kiely’s mother Lindsey Rodni-Nieman urged anyone at the party who has information to speak up.

“We are desperate for any other teens to come out and share the last pieces of the story that nobody seems to be able to piece together," sy het vertel Die Onafhanklike.

“She has since she was a little girl. She loves — of course, being a teenager — she loves being with her friends. She’s so interested in science and in medicine and in cooking,” Rodni’s mother said.

“She taught herself how to make chocolate cakes from scratch when she was young, and they’re actually good.”

Kiely Rodni’s mother reveals she almost didn’t go to camp party

The mother of Kiely Rodni has revealed that her daughter almost didn’t go to the campground party the night she disappeared as she issued a gut-wrenching plea to local teenagers to help “piece together” what happened.

Lindsey Rodni-Nieman spoke to Die Onafhanklike on Thursday as the search for her missing 16-year-old daughter entered its fifth day and investigators are no closer to getting answers as to her whereabouts.

She said that Kiely had planned to go to a car show in Reno with her mother on Friday night but texted her during the day to say that she was going to go to a party at the Prosser Family Campground instead.

Ms Rodni-Nieman said she wishes Kiely had never gone to the party that night and had joined her at the car show that night. But she said thinking like that is “not helpful”.

Friend recounts final call before her disappearance

A friend of missing teen Kiely Rodni has spoken about the pair’s final phone call before her friend vanished from a campground party in California.

Samantha Smith, 18, vertel Die Onafhanklike on Monday she was the last person to speak with 16-year-old Kiely after midnight on Saturday.

“Om 12:36 het sy my gebel … en dit is die laaste oproep wat iemand met haar gehad het. Ons het gesê 'lief vir jou, goeie nag. Kom veilig by die huis,' en dit is die laaste ding wat ons van haar gehoor het,” Samantha said on Monday.

Kiely was at a party at the Prosser Family Campground in Truckee, the Placer County Sheriff’s Office said. Because her vehicle, a silver 2013 Honda CRV, is missing, authorities are treating the incident as a possible abduction.

Investigators release new images in search for the missing teen

Op Woensdag, investigators released two new photos to the public: one of Kiely’s missing silver 2013 Honda CRV and one of a hoodie she is believed to have borrowed at the party.

The black hoodie features the eerie Lana del Ray lyrics: “You don’t want to be forgotten. You want to disappear.”

“We don’t know whether Kiely was wearing that hoodie when she disappeared, but we believe it was still in her possession,” Placer County Sheriff’s Office said.

Kiely had reportedly planned to drive herself and her friend Samantha Smith home from the party in her vehicle.

Ms Smith previously told The Independent that Kiely was drinking at the party and wouldn’t have been able to drive so they both told each other to “get home safe”.

Kiely’s car has not been found during the five-day search which has centred on the area around the campground where she was last seen.

Kiely’s mother ‘knew something was wrong’

Kiely’s mother said she “knew something was wrong” when she learned her daughter hadn’t come home on Friday night – as it was so out of character for her.

Lindsey Rodni-Nieman told Die Onafhanklike that she asked her daughter to wake her to let her know she was back home safe.

The teen had texted her at 11.30pm to say she was leaving the party soon.

“The thing I regret most is not waiting for her to get home,” she sobbed.

“I fell asleep. I asked her to wake me when she got home… but I didn’t notice until 8am the next morning.

“When I woke up and noticed she hadn’t woken me I first thought maybe my husband was still awake when she got back and so she didn’t wake me.

“But I jumped up and checked her car and it wasn’t there. I went to her room and she wasn’t there.”

Ms Rodni-Nieman checked her cellphone location data and found her cellphone was last at the campground where the party took place at 12.03am. She has since learned that Snapchat data shows her cellphone at the same location at around 12.30am.

“There was no question that this is so out of character that we needed to get a search going right away," sy het gese.

Campground was popular for teenage parties

The Prosser Family Campground is a popular hangout spot for local teenagers and is seen as a “safe space” for young people, Kiely’s mother’s Lindsey Rodni-Nieman has revealed.

Teenagers have partied and hung out at the campground going back decades and Kiely had been to several parties there before Friday.

“It feels like a safe place. Like a neighbourhood backyard,” said Ms Rodni-Nieman.

“It’s a couple of miles out of town and is just this open space with reservoirs and camping and dirt roads. Lots of people go riding dirt bikes or hiking and it’s a community space.”

What was different that night was that the party was “very large” with teens from different schools all over the region descending there.

“There’s not generally so many people there. That’s what made it unusual,” said Kiely’s mother.

Officials have said that around 200 aan 300 teenagers and young adults gathered for the party that night.
