Search area revisited after Tiahleigh Palmer's shoe found

A SHOE belonging to Queensland schoolgirl Tiahleigh Palmer has been found at the same Gold Coast river where her body was located.

Detective Inspector Dave Hutchinson said the mud-covered shoe was found on Sunday, prompting State Emergency Service volunteers and police divers to search the Pimpama River again today.

The shoe was found about 100 metres from where Tiahleigh's body was discovered and on the opposite bank of the river.

Police yesterday released a video of Tiahleigh taken several days before her disappearance to provide a more accurate picture of her appearance.
