The site for Kiely states how the FBI is involved. That's good they're involved so early.
The data might not be that great if the towers are far and few between, though. The distance between Truckee and Prosser might only be served by one tower?I definitely take this to mean that Samantha was riding home with a friend. She said previously that Kiely was going to give her a ride home, but Samantha changed her mind when she saw her condition.
Law enforcement would have a good idea of at least the general location where Kiely was when she called Samantha, based on cell tower data.
Point being to search the area, which it appears they areBBM...Merely running a magnet along the boat ramp area may not find a car in the lake. I am sure some of you remember back to 1994, when a South Carolina woman, Susan Smith, rolled her car off a boat ramp, into John D Long Lake in Union, SC, with her 2 small children inside. It took 9 days to find her car, partly because it was missed when the lake was first searched. LE assumed the car would be within 30 feet of the bank, and it was over 100 feet out into the lake. JMO
Thanks for your insight and personal knowledge of the area. Any particular roads / trails that would be harder to navigate if one was under the influence as some have observed Kiely was? Her friend Samantha indicated (per SMS interview) that Kiely knew the area well, had been to the party location on several occasions, etc...would it be be easy to take the wrong turn, etc. driving from the party location to the family lodge?I live less than 1/2 mile from the site of the party. I’ve lived in this neighborhood for 20 years and have run or mountain biked thru the trails and where the kids were partying hundreds it not 1000s of times. I just got back from a run and there were a ton of official Orange Search and Rescue teams out there, helicopters over head and tons of other people on the shores of Prosser either on foot, 4x4s or on the water on paddle boards. Where the party was, is fairly shallow and the water level is rapidly decreasing day by day. I run by this spot 4x week.
My own daughters are just a couple years older and went to these parties all the time in the summer, especially during Covid. Although their parties were 30max kids. They would circle the cars up, turn on headlights, play music and hang… booze and pot were the norm. Never any fires. They would all sleep in their cars… my daughters had a beat up Subie Outback and then come home in the AM.
Anyhow, the immediate terrain around is definitely being gone over with a fine toothed comb. I’ll probably grab my Mtn bike a cruise around on some the less obvious terrain later today when it gets cooler.
Either way, this hits way too close to home…
AT&T service is "ok" in the area.... Verizon less so. Not sure about others. Where the kids were... they would have had AT&T service for sure.The data might not be that great if the towers are far and few between, though. The distance between Truckee and Prosser might only be served by one tower?
There is one paved road in and out of this area and no other dirt roads to get out easily... especially with just a Honda CRV. Once you get on 89... and if she were to turn north, then the dirt roads out there are endless. I've been out there exploring a ton on my dual sport.... beautiful remote areas. Tonight I was planning on hit mostly the area confined by the reservoirThanks for your insight and personal knowledge of the area.

Here is an article quoting her mother's timeline. Although I am not really sure of how credible the news source is. I have not really read anything else from them. So I defer to members more in the know regarding source material.
