“Happy Tuesday! Hello,” Callum said in the message she posted on her Instagram Story, Australian newspaper 7 News reported.

“It’s 11:11 and I’m just thinking about you. I just wanted to send you a quick message and say hello, baby.

“I hope you start your day phenomenally. I feel a big smile on your face for some reason today. I hope you are full of positivity and smiles.

“Good job, baby. I miss you.”

Horwath wrote that she will “play this on repeat” in the caption.

“This man changed my life in ways I can’t even express in words,” she wrote in another post along with a photo of her arms around Callum.

“I don’t yet understand a world without him and his energy. I feel so grateful that I loved it.

“Tell your people you love them,” she continued. “Live your life to the fullest every day, be kind to others, laugh uncontrollably. Don’t let the little things bother you. lead with positivity. and live like Cal.

The three friends were last seen alive on April 27 in the city of Ensenada.

Mexican authorities initially said the three men were victims of a violent carjacking. However, the Post has learned they may have been killed by cartel members looking for a rival gang as Baja California is in the midst of a war on drugs.

Three people — Jesús Gerardo Garcia Cota, his partner Ari Gisel García Cota and his brother Cristian Alejandro Garcia — have been arrested in connection with the disappearance of the three surfers, but at this point they have not been charged with murder.

Prosecutors say the trio targeted the surfers for their car tires before a confrontation turned violent. They then hid their bodies in a well about six kilometers away.

But that story doesn’t seem to hold water, a source who works in private security in Mexico told the Post.

Instead, he believes the surfers were misidentified as a rival criminal organization and murdered by the cartel.

“Given the deep and widespread corruption within Mexico’s police force, it is difficult to rule out the possibility of a cover-up that could deflect responsibility from a powerful drug cartel. This would certainly align with the Mexican government’s efforts to downplay the severity of cartel violence in Mexico,” the source said.

Prosecutors said a fourth body was also found at the bottom of the well. These are probably the remains of a breeder who owned the property and disappeared two weeks earlier.
