Daughter of Tahnee Shanks, Australian woman missing in Mexico, safe with family as search for mum continues
The daughter of missing Australian woman Tahnee Shanks has met her cousins in North Queensland for the first time after her uncle and grandmother flew to Mexico to rescue her.
Two weeks ago Ms Shanks was reported missing after her daughter Adelynn was found alone outside a church in Cancun, hours from home.
In a statement, the family said now Adelynn was home they could focus fully on the investigation into the disappearance of her mother.
"We will not give up hope or looking for you Tahnee," they said.
"After seeing first hand what [the police] are doing over there in Mexico, we are more than happy they are throwing every resource at this case.
The Shanks family thanked the Mexican government, the police and Australian embassy staff for their tireless work on the case and for facilitating the quick return of Adelynn to her family.
The family also thanked the "overwhelming" generosity of those who had donated to a GoFundMe page, which has raised more than $32,000.
Ms Shanks' disappearance is being investigated under Mexico's Alba Protocol.
It was established in 2003 to locate missing women and girls and to protect personal freedoms and liberty.
The search is being carried out with the cooperation of three levels of government as well as the general public, media, and other organisations.
