Kiely Rodni missing: Couple who went missing same day as Kiely Rodni found dead - Kiely Rodni Death
A California woman and her ex-boyfriend have been found dead after they disappeared the same day that teen Kiely Rodni went missing from a campsite, police said.

The bodies of Janette “JJ” Pantoja, 29, and her ex-boyfriend Juan Almanza Zavala, 36, were found Wednesday outside a vehicle that crashed down an embankment in Nevada County, the sheriff’s department said. 

The former couple, who broke up years ago but remained friends, was last heard from on their way home from the Hot August Nights car show in Reno, Nevada.

Pantoja texted her current boyfriend that she would be home in 30 minutes around 11 p.m. Aug. 6. Shortly after that, her phone stopped sharing its location.

“She just never communicated anything other than that,” sister Alejandra Pantoja said. “She’s not like that.”
An initial search of the area where the duo’s cellphones were last pinged turned up no evidence. Their bodies were eventually discovered when a 911 caller alerted police to a vehicle down an embankment near Highway 20 and Poker Flats Road in Penn Valley. The accident was not visible from the road.

The crash site is about 70 miles from the Prosser Family Campground in Tahoe National Forest, where 16-year-old Kiely Rodni was last seen at a party shortly after midnight Aug. 6.

Although police said there is no evidence that the cases are connected, Pantoja’s sister expressed frustration at the disparity in law enforcement attention to the two cases.

While Rodni’s disappearance sparked at least 10 days of extensive searches — including almost 16,000 man-hours by land, air and water — Alejandra Pantoja claimed she was struggling to get a call back from police.

“I thought the police were pretty rude,” she told Fox 6 NOW. “I called them … because I wanted to know about my sister, and they were like, ‘We can’t keep in contact with you every day.’”
