The SUV was pulled from the water near the campground where Rodni vanished from about two weeks ago. It is unclear if the vehicle – which was removed from Prosser Creek Reservoir – belonged to Rodni.

Authorities spent weeks searching wooded areas near Prosser Family Campground in Tahoe National Forest that locals call “The Campground,” where Rodni was last seen around 12:30 a.m. on Aug. 6 at an estimated 300-person party that began on the night of Aug. 5.
Authorities believe she may have been abducted and are treating their investigation as an abduction. After her disappearance, Placer County officials activated the CodeRed Alert System, which sends alerts to the some-100,000-person Placer County population.
