A spooky message sent to a friend became even more spooky after the Australian who sent it went missing in Mexico.

Tahnee Shanks, 32, was in the resort town of Cancun when she texted her friend to remember a man’s name, before saying: “Just in case anything happens to me, they can track him.”

Police have since opened a missing persons investigation for Ms. Shanks and the husband, Ms. Shanks’ partner, after Tahnee’s two-year-old toddler was found abandoned at a church in Cancun.

In the text, she said: “I know this sounds weird but keep (his) name. Jorge Luis Aguirre Astudillo! Just in case anything happens to me, they can track him.

“Not that anything will happen! But I just want to keep that as a backup.” reported Daily Mail.

Footage showed Ms Shanks and Mr Astudillo exiting the hotel together before passing through a tollbooth out of town.

After passing through the checkpoint, they turned around and headed back to Cancun eight hours before toddler Adelynn was found in a church on the evening of May 2.

Mr Shanks said: “It takes eight hours for them to go through that tollbooth and get Adelynn dropped off at that church in Cancun.

“Then her phone stopped pinging pretty soon.

It is believed that the couple must have taken a different route to return to Cancun.

Her distraught brother has offered a one million pesos (AUD$70,000) reward for information about his sister’s disappearance and said he received a single message of his sister’s disappearance.

He continued: “All the authorities said I was going to be flooded and it was a bad idea.

“We need closure…if she’s dead, we need a body.

“I just can’t keep it like this because all I can think about is that something worse happened than being murdered like she was traded.

“It’s in my nightmares … that if she’s alive, she’s not in a very nice place and what (the authorities) are doing about it? Nothing.

“That’s why we need answers.”

Toddler Adelynn was brought back to Australia by her grandmother and uncle earlier this month.

Police are considering whether the couple were attacked by criminals in a random attack.

Mr Shanks also said that Australian authorities had to issue a request for information about the ongoing investigation because he had received no news from Mexican police.
