The grieving family of Seesha Dack who went missing in North Shields have paid tribute to the ‘bubbly and humble’ teenager.
The 15-year-old was reported missing on August 30, after last being seen by friends in the Fish Quay area.
An extensive police investigation was launched to locate her, with her image being shared far and wide on social media with concerned members of the public taking to the streets in search parties in a bid to bring her home safely.
Sadly, however, on Tuesday evening officers found the body of a female near Tanners Bank, North Shields. The body has since been formally identified as Seesha.
Officers are continuing to support Seesha’s family during this difficult time and her family have released a tribute to their much loved daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece and friend.
In a family statement they said: “We are beyond devastated by the loss of our daughter and sister Seesha.
“Seesha was a loving, funny, bubbly and humble girl with a smile that could light up any room. Her personality was precious and can never be replaced.
“She always went out of her way for other people, even going so far as to take food from home to give to a homeless man that she saw regularly.
“Even though it wasn’t the news that we were hoping for, we would like to thank everyone from the community and beyond for all their help while we were looking for her.
“We, as a family, request privacy in order for us to grieve and remember Seesha.”
Following the investigation, officers do not believe there to be any third party involvement and a report has now been prepared for the coroner.
