DE­TEC­TIVES in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mur­der of Toyah Cord­ing­ley at Wangetti Beach are ap­peal­ing for mo­torists trav­el­ling near Clifton Beach to come for­ward.

Queens­land Po­lice have re­leased a two-minute CCTV video which iden­ti­fies nearly 70 ve­hi­cles trav­el­ling south on the Cap­tain Cook High­way be­tween 5:02pm and 5:07pm at Clifton Beach on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 21.

“We be­lieve these driv­ers may hold in­for­ma­tion which is vi­tal to keep the in­ves­ti­ga­tion mov­ing for­ward,” De­tec­tive In­spec­tor So­nia Smith said.

“This in­for­ma­tion is im­por­tant to us and we en­cour­age peo­ple to come for­ward and talk to po­lice.

“If you recog­nise your ve­hi­cle please call Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 888 or Po­licelink on 131444.”

Po­lice have in­ter­viewed hun­dreds of mo­torists but they haven’t spo­ken to a num­ber of the driv­ers in that five-minute win­dow on Sun­day af­ter­noon.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors also con­tinue to ap­peal for in­for­ma­tion from any­one who saw any­thing sus­pi­cious in the Lake Placid or Car­avon­ica area.

A to­tal of 1100 calls from the pub­lic have been made to Crime Stop­pers.

“We are en­cour­aged by the con­tin­ued sup­port by the com­mu­nity.

“Ev­ery­where you go you see the Toyah bumper stick­ers which keeps Toyah’s mem­ory in the minds of the com­mu­nity,” Insp Smith said.

“We’re re­ally mo­tived by the sup­port. I thank the com­mu­nity for ev­ery­thing they’ve done.”

Ms Cord­ing­ley was re­ported miss­ing on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 21. her body was found the fol­low­ing morn­ing at Wangetti Beach, south of Port Douglas.
