The 16-year-old was last seen on Saturday and her dissappearance is now being treated as a possible abduction.
The mother of a missing 16-year-old has shared the final text message her daughter sent before going missing from a party at a campground.
Lindsey Rodni-Nieman's daughter Kiely Rodni was last seen at 12:30 a.m on August 6. Investigators from the Placer County Sheriff's Office are handing Kiely's disappearance as a possible abduction, reports PEOPLE. Kiely was one among "more than 100 juveniles and young adults" who attended a party near the Prosser Family Campground, roughly 10 miles north of Truckee, on Friday night.
Kiely's phone hasn't been turned on since she left the party, and authorities haven't found her silver 2013 Honda CRV, which has California license plate 8YUR127.
With no trace of Rodni or her car, detectives are not ruling out a possible abduction, Angela Musallam, public information officer for the Placer County Sheriff's Office had said.
According to the FBI Missing Persons report, she wore a black spaghetti-strap bodysuit, green Dickies brand slacks with a black grommet belt, and black Vans brand sneakers. She was wearing a dark gray Lana Del Ray hoodie.
Her mom Lindsey told ABC News that she got a text from Kiely late at night on Friday that said that Kiely would leave the party in 45 minutes and would be coming, "straight home." She added, "I told her to be safe and that I loved her. And she said, 'OK, mom, I love you, too. She never came home."
When Rodni's mother woke up the next morning to discover her daughter was still missing and her car was not there in their driveway, she panicked. She described her horror, "I called her and sent her texts, too, and she didn't answer. That's when I knew something was wrong."

She claims she doesn't believe her daughter ran away because all of her clothes and things are still at home, and it's "already so out of character" for her not to return calls or texts. Sami Smith, Kiely's friend, told the newspaper that she was the last person to interact with Smith during the gathering.
Smith said, "She was having a fun time at a party, just being a teenager. Everything she drank, I drank out of, and there was nothing that seemed off about her." She added, "I never expected this to happen ever. Nobody in this town did."
Kiely's mother said in a Facebook video shared by the Placer County Sheriff's Office, "We just want her home. We're so scared, and we miss her so much, and we love her so much. Kiely we love you, and if you see this, please just come home. I want nothing more than to hug you."

The Placer County Sheriff's Office has asked anybody who saw her that night to contact them, and detectives have gotten more than 200 tips so far, according to Placer County Sgt. Scott Alford. He told the outlet, "Right now we don't have any evidence that supports an abduction. We're considering everything."
"This is a missing person's case, this is a search-and-rescue effort."
The California Highway Patrol and the Placer County Sheriff's Office continued their helicopter searches for the adolescent and her car on Tuesday. Authorities and Kiely's family are requesting anybody who attended the party to help with the inquiry. Investigators are especially looking for any images or videos from that night to assist them to piece together a timeline. A reward of $50,000 is being offered for information leading to her safe return.
