Death of Kiely Rodni, the California teen found in a lake, is ruled an accident

The 16-year-old was last seen at a party on Aug. 6 and was found two weeks later in her vehicle, which was submerged in a lake.

The death of Kiely Rodni, the California teenager whose disappearance in August sparked a two-week search, has been ruled accidental.

A pathologist determined Rodni, 16, of Truckee, drowned, and there was no information to suggest foul play, the Nevada County Sheriff's Office said Thursday.

“As always, our office will continue to work with the family by evaluating any additional information related to this investigation,” it said in a statement.

The coroner’s division of the sheriff’s office ruled the death was accidental, the statement said.

Rodni disappeared after she left a party Aug. 6 at Prosser Family Campground in Truckee, which is in the Sierra Nevada mountains north of Lake Tahoe.

Her body was found around two weeks later, on Aug. 21, in her car submerged in Prosser Lake, which is near where the party was held, officials have said.
