WATERFORD West teenager Tiffany Taylor was remembered by her family today as a gregarious, outgoing girl who taught them a lot about life.
Tiffany, who was pregnant at the time, disappeared almost exactly two years ago this week and her family is still seeking answers about her suspected murder.
Detective Inspector Mark White of the Logan district police renewed the call for information on the case, which has been ongoing since Tiffany’s disappearance from Waterford West.
“It was around 10am on Sunday the 12th of July, 2015 that Tiffany was seen leaving a motel on Loganlea Road,” he said.
A 60-year-old Annerley man stands accused of the 16-year-old's murder, but searches around Lowood and Fernvale in the Somerset region failed to find the girl's body.
Police are continuing their appeal for information about a champagne-coloured 1995 Hyundai XL which was last seen in the Larapinta area of Logan City on the same day as Tiffany’s disappearance.
The vehicle was also seen in the vicinity of the Brisbane Valley Highway between Fernvale and Blacksoil on the that day.
Investigators allege the Logan girl met her accused killer at a Waterford West motel where she had been living with her boyfriend on July 12, 2015.
On that day, her Samsung Galaxy mobile phone gave out a signal for the last time, somewhere between Blacksoil, north of Ipswich, and Wivenhoe Dam, leading police to believe her body had been dumped in that area.
Police are appealing for anyone who may have found the white-coloured Samsung Galaxy S5.
Lost and missing her
“Tiffany’s missed out on too much in our family,” her sister Chloe told the media this week.
“We would really like to have some closure, bring Tiffany to our family again instead of feeling lost and missing her.
“Any answers will put our hearts at ease. It’s harder than it seems.
“I don’t want anyone to forget Tiffany. She shouldn’t be forgotten.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
