A mother who was found dead with her child at the bottom of a lookout in a suspected murder-suicide south of Sydney has been identified.
Emergency services were called to the location, near Wollongong, on Tuesday afternoon where they found the bodies in dense bushland below a lookout.
They were retrieved about 7pm on Tuesday night.
According to the Daily Telegraph, the bodies of Tanya Ludwig and her two-year-old daughter, Tilly, were found after police responded to a concern for welfare.
A number of people believed to be family members were seen at the scene on Tuesday, 9 News Sydney reported.
In one of her final posts to Facebook back in December, Ludwig shared a list of suicide prevention and counselling services.
“It’s okay to not be okay,” she wrote in the caption ahead of Christmas. “We all need support sometimes.”
