Fans of a top Instagram model have grown concerned after she abruptly stopped posting over a year go.
Jessica Stein, an Australian social media star, offered followers a glimpse of her glamorous life and made a living with sponsored content.
The 38-year-old, from Sydney, started the Tuula Vintage blog in 2010 and shared travel and fashion posts from across the globe.
Her last Instagram post was on January 4, 2020, in which she pleaded with her two million followers to donate to organisations tackling Australia’s wildfires.
Before then, Jessica would regularly share pictures of her three-year-old daughter Rumi, who was diagnosed with Mosaic Trisomy 2.
There are just 10 known instances of the rare chromosome disorder.
Jessica’s bio reads: "Wanderer in a past life Mum to the strongest, happiest human."
She regularly shared pictures of the pair together, and the last photo of them was uploaded on July 16, 2019.
In it, Jessica beams as he holds up her smiling daughter on a family "getaway".

Jessica wrote: "One of our biggest hopes for 2019 was to spend as much time at home as possible, but we’ve somehow spent nearly 5 months of it living in hospital.
"This little getaway was so that I could finally work and shoot my collection with spell, and a much-needed change of scenery for us all.
"We had barely checked in to saltatshoalbay before realising a beautiful family that we know from hospital were also staying there with the same idea!
"It was surreal being able to get to know each other in the outside world, spontaneously popping champagne to celebrate our daughters."
In recent weeks, a number of fans have started leaving messages on Jessica’s feed and wishing her well.
One said: "It’s been a long time since you’ve connected to IG, actually hope that you and your fam are ok."

Another commented: "Hope you are ok, you’ve been missed sending you prayers you and your family."
A third added: "Thought of you and your family out of the blue. Hoping all is well!"
In 2017, Jessica set up a GoFundme page to raise money for Rumi’s medical bills – and raised $235,804 [£169,421].
She and partner Patrick Cooper put the funds towards private healthcare including physiotherapy, speech therapy and medical equipment.
At the time, Jessica said: "Unfortunately, all of our savings are long gone. We have already borrowed a few thousand from family to tide us over, but rent is due yet again and we currently have $202 between us.
"Pat and I haven’t been able to work due to caring for Ru around the clock."
