A dad who found his daughter's body partly buried on a beach has penned a heart-wrenching tribute on the two-year anniversary of her death.

Toyah Cordingley, 24, was walking her dogs on Wangetti Beach, Queensland, Australia on October 20, 2018 when she disappeared.

Her naked body, which was hidden in sand dunes, had “visible and violent injuries” when Troy Cordingley spotted her.

A tribute to Toyah was shared by her father Troy who described his heartbreak over the past two years.

He wrote on Facebook: “Two years … it seems like yesterday … it seems like one hundred years.

“I had a million things to say, but now I don’t seem to be able to.

“I miss you more than life itself, I would trade places with you in an instant.

“I am now half the person I used to be, you are my world. You are all the love, joy and happiness I have ever known, you taught me to be a better person.

“Without you everything seems pointless.”

Police investigating Toyah's suspected murder have named just one person of interest in the case.

The Cairns Post revealed a father-of-three, Rajwinder Singh, was identified as a key person of interest by police but he reportedly flew to India the day Ms Cordingley’s body was found.

Despite collecting DNA evidence, CCTV footage and using mobile phone signals to narrow down on a suspect, Australian police have not released any major details to the public.

A statement released this week by Australian Police said: “Police have faced a number of challenges due to the complex nature of the investigation, however remain committed to maintaining the integrity of the rigorous process.

“Toyah’s family remain in our thoughts and detectives continue to liaise with them and provide regular updates on the investigation’s progress.

“Whilst police acknowledge public interest in the case, our primary focus is ensuring Toyah’s killer is brought to justice without compromising the investigation.”

Police have again appealed for anybody with information in relation to Toyah’s death to come forward.
