Where is 16-year-old Kiely Rodni? That’s the million-dollar question that the Placer County Sheriff’s Office is trying to answer now that they’ve considered her disappearance as a potential abduction.
Truckee, Calif., resident Kiely Rodni vanished after telling her family she was going to head home from a high school graduation sendoff early Saturday, prompting a search effort on Tuesday, according to the Placer Country Sheriff’s Office. Neither she nor her vehicle has been accounted for since Saturday. Detectives are currently following up on leads and a Falcon 30 helicopter has been dispatched to assist the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office with the search for Rodni.
