The scuba group Adventures With Purpose has found the body of missing 16-year-old California girl Kiely Rodni.
The American scuba group Adventures With Purpose (AWP) has solved another missing person case. This time the searchers, operating on a non-profit basis, found the body of missing 16-year-old Kiely Rodni. The girl went missing on August 6, 2022 after attending a high school graduation party. It was there that she was last seen.
The graduation celebration was a big event with about 200-300 people and was held at the Prosser Lake campground. At 00:36, when everything was winding down, Kiely called a friend and asked if she needed a ride home. This conversation was the last contact anyone had with the girl before she went missing.
The search for Kiely Rodni was a large-scale operation and covered an area with a radius of 100 kilometers. Local police and the sheriff’s office provided AWP divers with information on search locations.
The group began their work by scanning the waters of Posser Lake, using their sonar-equipped boat. The volunteers quite quickly came across an object that piqued their interest and decided to check the site by going underwater. At a depth of about 4 meters, they found the upside-down wreck of a Honda Civic car. This was the exact car Kiley Rodni was driving when she went missing. The divers brought the license plate to the surface to confirm that the found car belonged to the teenager.
The divers then notified the family and the police of their discovery. Further work allowed the police to find the woman’s body located in the wreckage of the sunken Honda.
This is another successful action by the Adventures With Purpose group, which operates in the US. Volunteer divers help families searching for missing loved ones. They scour rivers and lakes free of charge, and document and share all their activities on their YouTube channel and website.
