Homicide detectives investigating the death of Toyah Cordingley say they have fresh leads after searching a Cairns suburb on the weekend.
Police investigating the slaying of Queensland woman Toyah Cordingley say they have fresh leads after searching a Cairns suburb.
The young pharmacy worker was last seen at Rusty's Markets in the holiday city on October 21 before she drove to Wangetti Beach about 2pm to take her dog for a Sunday afternoon walk.
The 24-year-old's body was discovered by her father, Troy Cordingley, in sand dunes at the isolated beach the following morning during a coordinated search.
Detective Inspector Sonia Smith says the search of the Caravonica and Lake Placid area, in north Cairns, on Sunday, yielded a number of items of interest, but would not detail what had been found.
Police are now appealing for people who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area on the day Ms Cordingley went missing to come forward.
Det Insp Smith also called for women who've been approached by men acting inappropriately or aggressively between the northern beaches of Cairns and Cardwell during the past two years to come forward.
She also appealed for dashcam footage from drivers who travelled between Wangetti and Clifton beaches on the Captain Cook Highway on October 21 between 4.30 pm and 5.30 pm.
Ms Cordingley's mother, Vanessa Gardiner, urged anyone who knows what happened to her daughter to contact police.
"You can help our broken family by bringing hope and justice for Toyah's senseless death," she said in a statement.
"A message from Toyah to everyone, especially all the young women in the world - never give up!"
