Young NSW woman body found in thick bushland.
Abbey Lamont-Salter had been missing for three days before the police discovered her body on Tuesday evening in the Illawarra area, south of Sydney.
Officers say the 24-year-old ‘s car was discovered at about 3 pm in Helensburgh.
Several hours later, at 7.30pm, her body was discovered.
Her sister, Casey Knight, had made an urgent plea for details just hours before the grim discovery.
“I need to find my sister,” she had written on Facebook.
Since news of Abbey ‘s death was made public, the post has since been filled with tributes and messages of condolences.
‘When she walked into a room people would just gravitate towards her’ “Abbey you were so beautiful and kind-hearted!” one person said.
“Sending my condolences to family and friends.”
Another said: “RIP Abbey, such a beautiful soul gone too soon.
“Thoughts are with your family.”
The family has not yet addressed the passing of Abbey publicly, but Casey told The Daily Telegraph that her sister had had a “rough year.”
“She was so funny, just so funny. When she walked into a room people would just gravitate towards her,” Knight said.
“She would light up the room. I think it just showed that by how the post about her missing went viral.”
Police also confirmed that the death was not treated as suspicious.
