Adventures with Purpose investigator Doug Bishop and diver Nick Rinn joined ‘America’s Newsroom’ to discuss how the team was able to locate the body officials say is likely to be 16-year-old Kiely Rodni.
Georgia teen Kaylee Jones disappeared three months ago from her Georgia home and hasn’t been seen since.
The now-17-year-old was 16 when her parents believe she left her family’s Carrollton home by climbing out of her second-story bedroom window on June 14 without her computer or phone, which had recently been confiscated after her parents said they found out she had been in communication with strangers online. 
“There have been numerous tips called/emailed in to Carroll County Sheriff’s Office but none have been substantiated,” the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office said in a Wednesday Facebook post. “The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office has since day one been committed to locating Kaylee and have a team of dedicated Investigators working this case and tirelessly following every lead and working in conjunction with many law enforcement agencies throughout the state and the country.
Authorities are asking anyone who sees Kaylee to call 911 immediately. The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office is also encouraging anyone with “a tip on Kaylee, no matter how small you may think it is,” to reach out to law enforcement.

MISSING KAYLEE JONES: 16-YEAR-OLD’S PARENTS FACE ONLINE HARASSMENT 1 MONTH INTO DAUGHTER’S DISAPPEARANCE
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation, FBI, the Secret Service, the U.S. Marshal Service and local law enforcement are now assisting in the search for the missing 17-year-old girl, who has special needs and has now gone two months without her prescribed medication.
Jones’ parents previously explained to Fox News Digital that two days prior to their daughter’s disappearance, they confiscated her phone in an effort to discipline her, at which point the 16-year-old turned to her laptop and began communicating with strangers on chatrooms like Omegle — a website that allows users to anonymously send direct messages or video-chat with one another.
