Having teenagers, especially a teen girl, there is no way 100s of kids were hanging out at a party and there’s no video/ photo evidence, have it be Instagram, Snapchat or Tik Toks. ESPECIALLY if some of these kids were leaving for college soon. I find it highly unusual that we don’t have any other visual evidence of KR at the party that night, either direct photos with others or unknowingly in the background. My daughters phone does not leave her hand, whether she has service or not doesn’t matter. She will be snapping selfies and uploading stories left and right if she were to attend an event with her peers, and most kids do these days.
I have to say that is the strangest thing about this situation that stands out to me.
That and the fact that she was close enough friends to drive people to the party and borrow a hoodie but no one is speaking out to say anything about her being there, what her condition was, who she was talking to, etc.

Edited for sp
They definitely could have this as evidence but will not release to media due to majority being underage.

Also- it sounds like her phone was dying (according to SS) because they went back to her vehicle to charge their phones. I assume her phone ended up dying as soon as she got off the phone w SS because she charged it about an hour before and if it was already low, then maybe that will only give her an hr worth of charge? She wasn’t back in the car when she called SS (based on what SS said) — she mentioned loud background noise and assumed she was still at the party when she made the final call.

she’s held captive or body dumped with car hidden in garage or storage.
SBM.

Yes, this is likely. When I first read of Kiely's disappearance, it reminded me of 18 year old Naomi Irion. She was kidnapped while she sat in her car in the dark at a quiet Walmart parking lot at 5am. Her car was dumped and she was taken, fatally shot and buried in rural Nevada.
It's possible something similar could've happened to Kiely too. It's not outside the realm of possibility.

MOO.

Have other vehicles in the past been retrieved from the lake, and was it a quick process? I read that the reservoir has a depth of 73 feet. Prosser Creek Reservoir (CA) nautical chart and water depth map

I live near rivers, and people and vehicles can take months to locate, if ever. (Admittedly, rivers are much different than a reservoir due to current).

In fact, a 15-foot high B-25 medium bomber went missing in 1956 in our Monongahela River, which is only 20-foot deep, and was never found. (And yes, there are conspiracy theories.)

This is the CCTV footage LE has released which was from 8/5, at a local business.

Observations/questions:
- Are those the same clothes as described in the missing posters? The posters say green Dickies jeans, but they look blue. Is that just the camera color being bad or a subtle shade that can't be seen well (lke 'light green' or ''forest green')
- Location seems to be a gift shop. Or maybe a gifts aisle/area of a convenience store?
- Have her movements before the party documented at all? Where does this image fit into the timeline?

All observations are MOO.
 
It is hard to tell from the Google Satellite image, but the party location is up on a small ridge. The dirt road coming in is in a very slight valley so noise and headlights would not really be noticed from our neighborhood, Lakeside Campground, or the Prosser Family Campground. It has only been the last couple of years I have noticed groups of kids camping there... so I think "The Sanctuary" has only recently become a hang out spot for teenagers.

Previously random "pickup truck" type guys would hang there drinking whiskey.... or last summer I remember a hippie type couple was living in their tent there for maybe 10 days.

Anyhow, it is a little more off the beaten path and in a spot that can be accessed quietly.
Thanks again. Particularly for the info on exact site of party group! Looks like you can go straight out to route 89.
 
I’ve been to prosser lake before a while ago and as I remeber it got deep really quick off the ramp. Did some looking and found the nautical chart **Here**Like I said it has been a long time since i have been, but I think if she was driving, with her windows down and hit the water at 30+mph she could have knocked herself out and been at the bottom of the reservoir in a matter of minutes and no one looked for hours. The bottom being 60 feet deep or more.

*edit from prosper lake to prosser
Wow, haven’t seen this until now. That map is very helpful. Up to 73 feet at its deepest though that’s not by the boat launch that lake is still *much* deeper than I would have expected.
 
Sadly I think many missing people who disappear with their car don’t meet some mysterious end but are stuck in bodies of water or other obscure land locations.

I hope for her family/friends sake they get a resolution soon. This waiting game must be utterly horrendous.
 
Right. I understand...but aside from texts and a couple of witnesses...are there any photos , any video of her there?
Did anyone actually speak to her on the phone during the party, or was everything done by text?

I don't know...just throwing out other possible scenarios.

Her last phone ping was a the camp site

Most likely a gas station, the question was asked in the presser and LE said that due to ongoing investigation they were not revealing the exact business but that it was a local business in Truckee.
- Have her movements before the party documented at all? Where does this image fit into the timeline?
This is the only piece of evidence LE says they have. It was before the party in Truckee, assumingly on her way to the party.

8/5/2221:45Kiely arrives to partySamantha Smith reportedThe Independent
8/5/22Attends Party“We have been close friends since before, so we ended up meeting up with each other, sort of screaming to each other ‘Hi!’ For the rest of the party we pretty much stuck to each other,” Samantha told The Independent. But as the gathering grew bigger, the teenagers went separate ways while continuing to see each other sporadically throughout the party.

“I knew it was a big party but it was supposed to be just the community …The party started to grow past the [number] of people that were supposed to be there,” Samantha said.

“There were college kids and people from the Bay area coming and I got a bad feeling about it but didn’t really think much of it.”
The Independent
Witnesses and law enforcement say there were anywhere from 200 to 250 teenagers and young adults in attendance.KCRA
There were 200-300 juveniles at the party, which was in a wooded area, Musallam said in a news conference Tuesday, and "someone knows something."CNN
Smith, 18, said that there were plenty of attendees whom she had not previously met but none who seemed suspicious, gave unwanted attention or followed the pair around.

She said she didn’t notice anyone much older and that the party consisted mainly of teens, recent graduates and some college students from the surrounding areas. Some came from as far away as San Francisco, she said, but that was not unusual because the area is a summer vacation town.
"We met a few strangers together," she said. "We both tended to trust people. I say ‘tended to’ because now I don’t think I will continue to trust people. But she’ll give anyone the benefit of the doubt."

Rodni had enough drinks to become drunk, according to her friend and another recent graduate, Sami Smith, who added that she did not believe the teen would have driven under the circumstances.

"At the point when I left, I thought she was going to stay there," said Smith, who departed the campground just a few minutes before Rodni was last seen. "Everybody was camping. It was late enough that she should have stayed. She’s not the type to go and drunk drive or anything."

"For the amount of drinks we both had together, she’s not that dumb," she added. "I remember we were partying together. She was having fun. She seemed really happy — she was like normal, just on an adrenaline rush. Saying ‘Hi’ to everybody.

Smith said Kiely had been planning to spend the night at the campground, according to the Associated Press.Reno Gazette Journal
Rodni’s friend Magdalene Larson who is one of the organizers said the oldest of two was not in the right stage to drive herself that day.

“We know there’s no way she could have gotten herself out of there if she was drunk,” she said. “The roads in and out are too hard. With how drunk she was she wouldn’t have been able to navigate them.”

I know that she wasn't in the right mindset or state to drive. And if she were to have driven, she wouldn't have made it far, Smith said. "So my concern is that somebody might have offered to drive her home and then didn't take her home."CBS Sacramento
There are a flurry of online rumors but scant real clues in the case. Friends say Kiely intended to stay at the campground overnight, but they lost track of her in the large party. At least one witness says Kiely was too intoxicated to drive.SFGATE

CA - CA - Kiely Rodni, 16, missing from a large party @ Prosser Family Campground, car not found, Truckee, 6 Aug 2022
Thank you @megs1477 ...great timeline and synopsis!
 
How did Kiely get so “messed up” when she and SS were drinking the same thing? What were they drinking?

It doesn’t seem to be a secret that local teens would gather to drink, party, etc at the campground.

Maybe a few parents were in the dark about where their teen was - and that’s the reason they aren’t speaking up - but it wasn’t a gathering of 20 people, it was 200-300!

Something is off here. JMO
 
Anyone remember this case from last year?
After an extensive week long search, and while knowing which road this couple travelled, the wrecked car was only found by a local guy using a drone.
Vehicle crash down a ravine could be very hard to locate, depending on vegetation and geology.


May have happened here....it's a very extensive area.

There has been a lot of speculation about shrooms being eaten and hitting late. Typically shrooms can hit 90-150 minutes after ingestion. Kiely made a comment about getting "f'd up" that night which may indicate more than just drinking. Shrooms are more and more popular with this generation, especially in this area.

Also consumption of alcohol is different for everyone. 2-3 drinks can really have different results for each person, not to mention if they were drinking the same thing but mixing it themselves one could pour more than someone else. We just don’t know at this time. Tolerance level and amount ingested would be nice to know, but we just don’t :(

They are very popular in NC and Fl. now also. I can’t speak for other states.
