A frantic search is underway for a missing 16-year-old California girl who authorities fear was abducted from a graduation ceremony over the weekend.
Kiely Rodni was last seen at the party near the Prosser family’s campground in Truckee, north of Lake Tahoe, around 12:30 a.m. Saturday, the Placer County Sheriff’s Office said.
The teen’s silver 2013 Honda CRV is also missing and her cell phone has been dead since the party, authorities said.
Kiely attended the graduation celebrations with more than 100 young people and young adults.
Authorities believe she may have been abducted on her way home because they couldn’t locate her vehicle, ABC10 reported.
Her mother, Lindsey Rodni-Nieman, desperately pleaded for the public’s help on Sunday, saying her family “just wants their home.”
“We are so scared and we miss her so much and we love her so much,” Rodni-Nieman said in a video message released by the sheriff’s office.
“If anyone else is out there, if you know where she is, if you know anything about where she might be… please come forward and share.”
Kiely is described as 5’7 with blonde hair and hazel eyes. She was last seen in green Dickies pants, a black tank top and jewellery.
The teenager also has numerous piercings, including a nose ring.
Authorities have set up an anonymous hotline to help with the search.
