Missing estate agent Chelsie Dack wrote a haunting message on Facebook about her struggles with life in lockdown before she went missing.
Chelsie, 23, said life was getting ‘scarier by the day’ and that she had ‘really underestimated this current situation’.
The search for Chelsie was called off after CCTV footage showed her walking towards the pier at Gorleston-on-Sea and her cellphone was found on the pier.
Chelsie’s family said they thought she had taken her own life one day after she was reported missing.
Chelsie’s mother shared a post by the administrator of the Find Chelsea Dack Facebook page that said: ‘It’s with a very deep heart that we need to let you all know that is strongly believed Chelsie has taken her own life.’

On March 28, Chelsie wrote on social media: ‘I really underestimated this current situation, and I never really make a Facebook post but I wanted too tonight.
‘I don’t watch the news because I think it makes me feel worse but I see things and read about them online and it gets scarier by the day.
‘I think everyone is going through something at the moment even if it means just being lonely for a second.
‘I hope all of my friends and family are safe, and I hope everyone is keeping well.
‘I am only a message away if anyone ever wants a chat, these times only make you think about what is important.’
Chelsie’s mother, Dawn Howell, commented on the post that she should move home if she felt lonely.
Dawn wrote: ‘Don’t be lonely, see if someone will have your cat and come here
‘I worry about you.’
But Chelsie replied: ‘I’m not lonely! I just meant if anyone is.’
Another friend wrote: ‘Aww you’re so cute Chel, we love you loads. Yours and Liv’s videos are keeping us all going on our chat.’
After Chelsie was reported missing her mother said: ‘I cannot get my head around this.
‘It’s very out of the ordinary as she is the most bubbliest person.
‘She really is so happy and cheerful. I’ve got no idea at all why she might have gone missing. We were texting last night and she seemed absolutely fine.
‘Hopefully someone will find her safe and well as I just want her back.’
