Madalyn Davis, 21 a young British model who fell to her death from a cliff at a popular selfie spot in Sydney Australia has been mourned by devastated friends.
Madalyn Davis, 21, arrived in Australia late last year from Lincoln, England, and was planning on starting a new life there before her death on Sunday morning.
The young tourist was at a party in Vaucluse on Saturday night and went to the nearby 30-meter (100ft) Diamond Bay cliffs with seven friends about 6.30 am.
They are believed to have climbed over a fence to sit on the edge of the cliff to watch the sunrise before she fell.
The Diamond Bay cliffs are a notorious magnet for tourists taking Instagram shots dangerously close to the edge, with a 27-year-old woman falling in August.
Ms. Davis was mourned in dozens of tributes by shattered friends online, remembered as a ‘free spirit’ who was ‘beautiful inside and out’.
Her mother Rebecca Smith desperately tried to get hold of her on Sunday afternoon and begged friends to help track her down.
‘Anyone has seen Maddie? Not being able to get hold of her please get in touch if you were out with her last night,’ she said online.
However, by Monday morning her family confirmed Ms. Davis had died and thanked her friends for their kind words.
‘Thank you for all your beautiful condolences for Madalyn Davis and her family – it is an absolute tragedy to which nothing has been confirmed,’ another family member wrote.
Heartbroken friends in Britain and Australia posted tributes to Ms. Davis on social media on Monday morning as new of her death spread.
‘I really don’t know how to process this Maddie, last time we saw each other was three years ago and now you are gone,’ one wrote.
‘I will never ever forget the times we shared together the giggle fits we had in town. I will forever miss you, angel.’
Another friend wrote: ‘You were an incredibly beautiful model and talented artist giving so much color to the world.
‘You were so fun to be with that so many people have so many great stories and memories they tell about you, you will be so very sorely missed.
‘I hope all the koalas and kangaroos are looking after you.’
A third added: ‘It was a pleasure knowing you Maddie, you were beautiful inside as well as outside.’ Read Here
