A body was discovered during the search for missing California girl Kiely Rodni, 16. A volunteer dive group says it is her.

From Adventures with Purpose:

Car is upside down in only 14′ of water.
We have CONFIRMED Kiely is inside.

Law Enforcement on their way.

Adventurers with Purpose, which specializes in searching bodies of water for missing people, has helped solve cases in the past. If what they say is correct, this is a tragic end in the search for Rodni, who went missing after going to a massive party.

“We are aware of this information and have additional staff enroute to meet with Adventures With Purpose,” the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office said on Facebook. “We will provide additional information when it becomes available.”

The Placer County Sheriff’s Office later said they have yet to confirm the person’s identity.

“This is a developing situation, and we will provide updates when we can,” they wrote.

Rodni was reported missing Aug. 6. About 200 to 300 people went to the party at the Prosser Family Campground in Nevada County. Her phone has been out of service since the party, deputies said.

Authorities were also looking for her vehicle, a 2013 silver Honda CRV with the California license plate 8YUR127.

“We just want her home,” Kiely’s mother Lindsey Rodni-Nieman said in a video published Aug. 7. “We’re so scared, and we miss her so much. And we love her so much. And Kiely, we love you, and if you see this, please just come home. I want nothing more than to hug you.”
