Detective Senior Sergeant Grant Ralston, Officer in Charge of Logan Child Protection and Investigation Unit said that just one phone call with one piece of information could be all it would take to find Tiffany’s body and bring the family some answers.

“From the outset of this investigation we are grateful for the support the public has provided to police and Crime Stoppers,” Detective Sergeant Ralston said.

“What might seem small or insignificant to you could in fact hold vital information for police.

“If you haven’t previously contacted us, I urge you to do so now.”

Tiffany’s white Samsung smartphone is yet to be recovered and may have discarded in the Fernvale, Bundamba or Riverview areas.

EARLIER @ 7.15am: Police are expected to give an update this morning on the suspected murder of Logan teenager Tiffany Taylor.

The 16-year-old was last seen at a motel in Logan on 12 July 2015.

Rodney Wayne Williams was charged with murdering her in 2015, however her body has never been found.

It’s believed Taylor, who was five months pregnant at the time, was offering sexual services online in an attempt to earn money to support her unborn child.

Police allege this is where Williams first started talking to the teen, before they organised to meet.

At their first meeting, Taylor got into Williams car, and it’s believed they traveled about 15 kilometers to an industrial estate at Larapinta, then a further 40km to the Brisbane Valley.

Detective Senior Sergeant Grant Ralston from the Logan Child Protection and Investigation Unit will appeal for further information at 11.30am.
