Kiely Rodni - latest: Mother speaks out as search for missing Truckee teen is scaled back

California officials discuss search for Kiely Rodni

Kiely Rodni’s mother has spoken out after investigators announced that they are scaling back the search to find her missing daughter.

Lindsey Rodni-Nieman told The Independent on Tuesday that she “understands the reasons” behind the search moving into a “more limited” phase but vowed to “never give up hope” that she will find the 16-year-old.

Kiely was last seen at around 12.30am on 6 August at a party – attended by around 200 to 300 teens and young adults – at the Prosser Family Campground in Truckee, California.

Her cellphone last pinged next to Prosser Lake around that time and has not been in service since. Police have released images of two sweatshirts associated with Kiely – the first which she was leant and another which she was spotted on video wearing at the campground party.

Now 12 days on, officials said the case will be transitioning into a more “background, investigative” phase from next week.

Ms Rodni-Nieman urged people to continue to come forward with any information. “There’s no photo that’s too small, no piece of information too mundane,” she said.

Dog the Bounty Hunter claims fans are urging him to join search

Dog the Bounty Hunter has claimed that he has been sent a slew of tips about the disappearance of Kiely Rodni – almost one year after he controversially weighed into the investigation around Gabby Petito and Brian Laundrie.

The reality TV star – real name Duane Chapman – has been receiving vague clues from some tipsters while fans are also emailing him urging him to get involved in the search for the missing teen, TMZ reported.

But – despite the apparent demand – his rep told the outlet that he will not get involved unless he is personally invited to do so either by Kiely’s family or by law enforcement or if it reaches a point where 21 days has passed since the teen was declared missing.

The 21-day timescale is when Dog claims that missing persons cases typically go cold.

Thursday marks the 13th day of the search for Kiely, who vanished without a trace from the Prosser Family Campground in Truckee, California.

Kiely Rodni’s mother says she’ll ‘never give up hope’ of finding her

Kiely Rodni’s mother has said she will “never give up hope” of finding her daughter as investigators scale back the search for the missing teenager.

Lindsey Rodni-Nieman spoke to The Independent on Tuesday on what marked the 11th day since the 16-year-old vanished without a trace from a party at the Prosser Family Campground in Truckee, California.

“I don’t think I will ever give up hope that she’ll come back safely back to us,” she said.

“The mind reels. That doesn’t stop. But I do have people coming forward and sharing stories of their loved ones who went missing and then came back days, weeks and months later.”

Kiely Rodni’s mother says she ‘understands’ why search is being scaled back

Kiely Rodni’s mother said she “understands the reasons” why the search is being scaled back to find her missing daughter.

On Monday, investigators announced that they are planning to scale back the search after finding no clues as to her whereabouts.

The search will become “more limited” and move into more of a “background investigative” phase from next week, Captain Sam Brown of the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office said in a press conference.

Law enforcement personnel assigned to the case has already drastically reduced in the last few days, with over 200 on the case on Monday and just 82 on Wednesday.

Kiely’s mother Lindsey Rodni-Nieman told The Independent: “I understand the reasons behind their decisions and I support their effort. It’s because the area where they would have reasonably found her or her vehicle has been so thoroughly searched.

“The reason they’re doing that is that they’ve exhausted that area.”

She insisted she isn’t frustrated by the decision and praised law enforcement for being “very transparent” with the family about the strategy for finding her daughter.

“We’re confident that they’ve looked in every area that there is,” she said.

Dog the Bounty Hunter says he is getting tips

Dog the Bounty Hunter has claimed he has been sent a slew of tips about the disappearance of Kiely Rodni.

The TV personality – real name Duane Chapman – has been receiving vague clues from some tipsters while others are urging him to get involved in the search to find the missing teen, TMZ reported.

But his rep told the outlet that he will not get involved unless he is either invited to do so by Kiely’s family or law enforcement or until 21 days has passed since she was declared missing.

His reluctance comes after he faced a backlash when he famously launched his own search for answers following the disappearance of Gabby Petito. Petito was murdered by her boyfriend Brian Laundrie, who then killed himself.

Woman and ex-boyfriend disappeared one day after Kiely Rodni from nearby area

A California woman and her ex-boyfriend disappeared around the same time and from the same area as Kiely Rodni – after going to a car show that the missing teenager had also attended just days before her disappearance.

Janette “JJ” Pantoja, 29, and Juan Almanza Zavala, 36, had gone to the Hot August Nights car show in Reno, Nevada, together on the night of 6 August, according to authorities.

The pair, who had dated for eight years and remained good friends after their split, told their family members they were heading home to Yuba City, California, after the event.

When they failed to return home, Ms Pantoja’s family reported her missing to the Nevada County Sheriff’s Department and Mr Zavala’s family reported him missing to the Yuba City Police Department on 7 August. They have not been seen since.

ICYMI: Last cellphone ping places Kiely Rodni near lake on night she vanished

The last ping from Kiely Rodni’s cellphone has placed the missing teenager at the edge of a lake at the campground where she was last seen more than one week ago.

Captain Sam Brown of the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office revealed at a press conference on Sunday that the last known location from Kiely’s cellphone was at around 12.30am close to Prosser Lake – the constructed reservoir that goes around the Prosser Family Campground.

He said that it is difficult to get an “exact pinpoint” for the cellphone location data and that it is also possible that the cellphone did continue to ping after that time.

“Just because it was last pinged there, that doesn’t mean that’s where the phone stopped pinging,” he said.

“The ping for the data points was near the water. It’s hard to tell an exact pinpoint.”

Divers have been searching the lake for any signs of the missing 16-year-old but have recovered nothing to date.

Police to scale back search for missing teen

Investigators are planning to scale back the search for missing teenager Kiely Rodni as 11 days have gone by since she was last seen at a campground party in Truckee, California – and there is still no sign of the 16-year-old or her missing car.

Captain Sam Brown of the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office announced in a press conference on Monday that the search will move to a “limited” phase next week.

“We are moving into a more limited but continuous search and rescue effort, we’ve pulled in a tonne of resources towards that goal and to date we’ve had over 9,000 man hours into searching, which is pretty astronomical,” he said.

“Our biggest problem is where do we go and how do we keep sustaining this. We do have some plans that have continued… but we are going to have to switch modes and kind of focus on the investigative end and try to figure out where we do we go from there?”
