Body of missing teen found in Queensland
Last week, the body of a woman, believed to missing Queensland teenager Tea Wright-Finger, was found in bushland more than one month after she vanished, police confirmed last Thursday.
The 19-year-old was last seen in Richmond — almost 500km west of Townsville — on October 16 when she was dropped at her blue Toyota Prado 4WD by a friend. A thorough land and air search followed.
The vehicle — which was reportedly stolen two days before the teen vanished — was found in bushland last Wednesday, and the teen's body was found just over 600m away on Thursday.
Queensland Police said the teen's body was located by a helicopter at around 10:30 am. The death is not being treated as suspicious. A report will be submitted to the coroner.
