Divers look for missing California teen Kiely Rodni and find a body and a car that has been turned over
Police said Monday that the 'astronomical' search for missing California teen Kiely Rodni will be scaled back next week.
Captain Sam Brown of the Nevada County Sheriff's Office told the news. This happened 10 days after Rodni, who was 16, went missing from a party at a campground near the Prosser Family Campground in Truckee.
“We are moving into a more limited but continuous search and rescue effort,” Brown said during a press conference.
“We’ve pulled in a ton of resources towards that goal and I think to date we’ve [put] over like 9,000 man hours into searching, which is astronomical.”
Officials said on Monday that after searching by air, on land, and under water for the missing teen in the area north of Lake Tahoe, police would start looking into what happened.
Around 12:30 a.m. on August 6, Rodni was last seen at a big party with more than 100 teens and young adults. Officials say that her silver 2013 Honda CRV hasn't been found and that her phone hasn't had a signal since that morning.
The police said that they are still looking for witnesses and going over party video. At the press conference, it came out that some partygoers had been told by adults not to talk to police, even though no one has kept information from them.
“If you have not come forward, if you were there and you saw something please come forward and let us know,” said Placer County Sheriff’s Office Lieutenant John Barnhart.
On Monday, the police said they had tried more than 1,200 leads in the case, but none of them led anywhere.
