Queensland mayor Lawrence Springborg’s daughter found dead in Tasmania

The body of a Queensland mayor’s daughter has been found just days after she was reported missing.

Megan Springborg was last seen in Hobart on July 28, but she wasn’t reported missing until several days later after her family raised the alarm.

The 27-year-old’s father, Lawrence Springborg, who is the mayor of border town Goondiwindi in Queensland, was among several family members concerned for her well being when they couldn’t contact her.

Tasmanian Police confirmed there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding her death. 

Mr Springborg told Daily News there was ‘no way to prepare’ for the loss of his daughter. 

‘We’re very, very grateful for the time we had with Megan, and we hope those memories will sustain us into the future,’ Mr Springborg said.

‘We just want to thank so many members of the community that have reached out to offer their support, we’re very grateful for that.’

James Lister, a close friend of the family and member for Southern Downs said he heard of Megan’s ‘dreadful’ passing on Saturday night.

Her body was found earlier on Saturday. 

‘I’ve heard the news, and I’m sure I speak for everyone in wishing Linda, Lawrence, and their family our sincerest condolences for this tragedy,’ Mr Lister said.

Megan leaves behind her partner, Kai, and siblings Jens, Laura, and Thomas.
