Placer County Sheriff’s Detective Josh Barnhart said that after this week, the agencies working on the case would form a task force to share any new information. The agencies would switch off investigating tips rather than having multiple people working on the case on an ongoing basis.
Police said there has been no sign of Kiely or her silver 2013 Honda CRV after her phone was last on at 12:33 a.m. Aug. 6. The phone registered near the water but investigators said that does not mean she was last near or in the water.
The investigation included multiple searches at Prosser Reservoir in the water, air and on foot by hundreds of law enforcement agents, including the FBI. Volunteers have also been searching Prosser and nearby Boca and Stampede reservoirs.
He encouraged people to look around for anything that could lead to information about the missing honors student, who graduated from a Truckee charter high school in June. Even volunteers searching areas that law enforcement checked could yield different results, he said.
