Online investigators who focused on the Gabby Petito case have gotten involved in the search for missing adolescent Kiely Rodni.
As authorities shift to a “more limited search-and-rescue effort” 11 days after Kiely, 16, went missing, Reddit users are assisting in the search for her.
On August 6 in Truckee, California, close to the Prosser Family Campground, Kiely vanished around 2:30 a.m.
The VanLife subreddit, which was inspired by Gabby Petito’s disappearance when she and fiancé Brian Laundrie were on a “dream” road trip, issued a call to arms.
On Monday, a user asked all VanLife users to check their dashcam footage if they were close to the campground when Kiely vanished.
A flyer containing images of Kiely, her 2013 Honda CRV, and a sticker on the car was distributed.
After finishing his conversation with the person about the missing youngster over the phone, the Reddit member stated that he intended to share the post with a larger audience.
Additionally, a KielyRodni subreddit was established, and its 2,500 users are currently discussing the most recent details on the case.
This comes after Nevada County Sheriffs acknowledged on Monday that they are still lacking concrete information about Kiely’s whereabouts.
Capt. Sam Brown stated that the search and rescue effort would become more constrained yet ongoing.
We’ll have to shift gears and sort of concentrate on the investigative end to try to determine where we go from there.
Since Kiely’s Honda CRV is also missing, police initially thought the case involved a possible kidnapping; however, they now know it is a case of a missing person.
The teen is 118 pounds and has a height of five feet, seven inches.
According to her relatives, Kiely has blonde hair, hazel eyes, and a tattoo on her ribs.
She wore black tank top, green Dickies pants, and jewellery when she was last seen.
