A missing teen’s body has been discovered six weeks after she shared a frightening farewell video and left without a trace. Let’s see why did Tea Wright-Finger commit suicide and all about the TikToker’s death in detail.
Who was Tea Wright-Finger?
Tea Wright-Finger, a 19-year-old teen, went missing on October 16 after being taken off by a friend in a remote rural town in Australia.
It has been discovered that a youngster who vanished had shared a terrifying video of her injured face and revealed details of her troubled past. Tea Wright-Finger, 19, vanished on October 16 in Richmond, Far North Queensland, when a friend left her off close to her Toyota Prado 4WD.
Despite a desperate search by her family, the police, search helicopters, and members of the public, she hasn’t been found. Now, police found her body. A TikTok video of Miss Wright-Finger crying into the camera while her face is cut and battered has now shared by everyone.
Tea Wright-body Finger’s was discovered six weeks after she went missing. On the teenager’s TikTok page, the teenager’s grieving friends paid tribute to her. “Rest in peace, beautiful girl,” one person said.
Another wrote: “I prayed everyday you would let someone know you’re okay and resurface. Rest In Peace Tea.”
Since she vanished, she hasn’t used her bank card. To locate Miss Wright-Finger “safe and healthy,” Queensland Police said earlier when they were searching through “difficult terrain” and dense riverbank vegetation.
How did Tea Wright Finger die?
The 19-year-old was discovered in secluded woodland in Richmond, Queensland. In an effort to find Tea, authorities started a massive search effort. They used helicopters, off-road buggies, and local specialists to assist them travel through the secluded terrain.
After nine days of searching, there was no sign of Tea, therefore the search of Richmond, Queensland, was called off. However, a helicopter spotted a blue Toyota Prado in connection to her disappearance that was reported stolen on Thursday morning.
The search crews finally found her body in remote bushland – 600 meters away from her vehicle.
The teenager’s mother Tracy Wright thanked people who had helped in the search for her daughter.
“Richmond police just phoned – they got a ping off Téa’s phone on Tuesday and it was still in the Richmond area,” she wrote on Facebook on Saturday. “It was not until Wednesday morning that it started going straight to message bank.
“Because of this they have two helicopters up again today searching and driving all the roads again. They have had quite a bit of rain so the gravel roads are very wet. They have pinged her phone so if she turns it on or uses it, we can get an idea where she is.”
“Police have talked to Tea’s family, and we send our sincere sympathies to her family and loved ones,” the Queensland Police stated. Her death is not being treated as suspicious, as per the police and they will prepare a report for the coroner.
What happened to the TikToker?
The 19-year-old had been dropped off by a close friend close to where the automobile was parked. In a tragic twist of fate, Tea posted a haunting video less than two weeks prior to going missing in which she professed her love for the isolated outback area where she vanished.
She added a number of pictures of herself enjoying the outdoors and captioned one of them, “I don’t feel so good, I want to go home,” before adding that it was where she felt “at home.”
In another TikTok video posted on her 19th birthday, she told her followers “it’s okay to feel lost sometimes”, caption reads. “Always take risks in life, you never know when it’s going to end, You always have to work hard to get what you want, no one is going to hand it to you. If people want you in their life, they will make time for you.”, she said.
Why did she commit suicide?
On Wednesday, Queensland Police released dramatic video showing the moment that police located the blue Toyota that had been stolen. Tea earlier shared a video where her face is injured and she cried. She had a terrific past and it is believed that she ended her life.
A gloved hand unlocks the front passenger door of the automobile as officers approach it on the video, revealing an open glove box with a pink package inside. On October 14, two days before Tea vanished, the Toyota, which was located 700 kilometres away in Proserpine, was reported stolen.
Previously, police had looked into the possibility that she had visited the Northern Territory, where she had worked as a farmhand. Last month, police released CCTV footage of Tea at a petrol station in Richmond moments before she disappeared. The video shows girl wearing a light pink and purple dress and sandals as she pays for a bottle of juice.
Tea posted her frightening farewell video in her page and left without a trace. She disappeared in the unexplored terrain of Northern Territory. Later, she was found dead in Northern Territory’s isolated area.
Police report says, “Investigators would like to thank the State Emergency Service (SES), local property owners and the community for their assistance and information provided during the search for Tea.”
“Sadly police have located the body of a woman, believed to be Tea Wright-Finger, in bushland near Richmond. For help, members of the public are encouraged to contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 or visit www.lifeline.com.au or Beyond Blue on 1300 22 4636 or at www.beyondblue.org.au.”
