Toyah’s sister in desperate plea to mystery family

THE sister of Toyah Cordingley says a mystery family could hold the key to solving the 24-year-old's brutal murder last week.

Leynah Gardiner said detectives were trying to speak to a family who was at Wangetti Beach around the time Toyah was last seen on October 21.

In an emotional post on Facebook, she begged the family to come forward and speak to police.

"To the family who was seen at Wangetti Beach and is yet to contact police, put yourself in the place of my family," Leynah wrote.

"Imagine if it had been one of your children, you would be doing whatever you can, getting whatever information you could, no matter how small it may seem.

"So I'm asking, if you do see this post PLEASE call the police and tell them what you know/saw. It might just be what they're looking for.

 

Police have also released an image of the 2009 blue Mitsubishi Lancer sedan driven by Toyah Cordingley, which was parked in the southern car park at Wangetti Beach on Sunday afternoon.

"And to everyone else, every bit of information helps so please report anything you know to assist the police in doing their jobs."

Police yesterday renewed calls for people to come forward with information, no matter how small.

"We will leave no stone unturned," Detective Inspector Sonia Smith said.

"It is an open investigation, we do have an open mind and we will follow all lines of inquiry until we get answers for Toyah and her family.

"It's important that people understand that no piece of information is too big or too small."
