Police have confirmed that Kiley Rodney’s body is in the reservoir

Nevada County law enforcement recently released a statement regarding the disappearance of California teenager Kelly Rodney.

They confirmed that Rodney’s body was found in a submerged car in Prosser Lake over the weekend.

The Placer County Sheriff’s Office took to Facebook to update the public on the case.

“The Nevada County Sheriff-Coroner has identified the deceased as Kelly Rodney, 16, of Truck,” they wrote.

He added, ‘The Placer County Sheriff’s Office and the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office are communicating with Kelley’s family. Our deepest condolences go out to them at this very difficult time.’

The announcement came after Adventures With Purpose, a specialty dive team, found the submerged vehicle in Prosser Creek Reservoir near Truckee.

The volunteer group is a popular search and rescue group that helps families find their missing loved ones.

Nevada County Sheriff’s Capt. Sam Brown noted that the car was overturned and about 14 feet below the lake’s surface.

He also added that the police had previously searched the reservoir and devoted ‘more than 15,000 man hours’ to the investigation.

More on Kelly Rodney’s disappearance and eventual death

Kiley Rodney disappeared from a campground party in Prosser three weeks ago on August 16. The party was held to celebrate a high school graduation and included over 100 guests.

Rodney last texted her mother around 12:30 p.m., letting her know that she was returning home in the truck.

Meanwhile, Rodney’s family released a statement on Monday thanking everyone for their cooperation during the search.

He shared, ‘We have weathered a storm of unfathomable strength and it is entirely thanks to an army of warriors, matriarchs, healers and helpers that we are still standing today.’

The statement further noted, ‘As we embrace this sadness of being shadowed by death, the rising sun shines upon us, reminding us not to mourn our loss, but to celebrate Keeley’s spirit and the gift we received from knowing her. Even if we don’t get her back, Keeley will definitely stay with us.’

However, the sheriff’s office has not yet released Rodney’s cause of death. He claimed that the investigation is still on.
