A summary from the police presser on 7 November 2015.
* No confirmed sightings since 8:10am when Tiah was dropped off to school, when she was dropped off to school by her "carer".
* Cause of death undetermined at this time.
* Public appeals for anyone saw Tiah on 30/10/2015 to come forward. Anyone who drove on Chambers Flat Road and Muchow Road who may have a GoPro in their vehicle. Anyone who lives on those roads with CCTV pointing towards the footpath. Anyone who has been near the Pimpama Bridge within the last 7 days, even if they didn't see anything--police are attempting to establish a timeline.
* Police have and will continue to seek information from Tiah's peers, but also asked parents with children attending her school to speak to them about Tiah and if they knew of any plans she might have had for 30/10/2015.
* No reason provided about the delay in issuing the missing person's information through the media. It was stated that ongoing efforts had been made to find Tiah prior to the media release.
* Tiah's family background not relevant. Lots of nosying from reporters around Tiah's family situation but further discussion was shut down with a reminder about legislation.Any opinions I post here are my own and not those of Websleuths.

The girl whose body was found in a Queensland river a week after she went missing was in foster care and had often run away from home, a former carer says.
As police stepped up their investigation into whether Tiahleigh Palmer, 12, was murdered, details of the girl’s troubled have emerged, including that her mother was hoping to regain custody after spending years in and out of prison.
Her former foster carer Julie Pemberton says the girls’ mother Cyndi Palmer, 30, was preparing for a custody hearing as she believed she finally ‘had her life on track’ after struggling as a teen mum and spending years in and out of prison.Any opinions I post here are my own and not those of Websleuths.
