“We want to leave no stone unturned,” announced Musallam. “We take this case, just like any other missing persons case, extremely seriously. Kiely is considered to be highly at risk right now because she is a minor and she is missing”

Kiely went missing after attending a party at the Prosser Family Campground on Friday, August 5. Rodni’s cell phone died just after midnight Saturday morning and became she became untraceable.

The police are treating the investigation as an abduction despite there not being any precise evidence of an abduction yet. Due to this, officers have not been able to issue an Amber Alert as that is one of the four requirements.

Police are urging others who attended the party to come forward with any information they may have, ensuring to the public that anyone who calls the office’s tip line may remain anonymous.
