Australian surfer Callum Robinson has left his girlfriend a heartbreaking final voicemail.

The girlfriend of one of the tourists killed while traveling in Mexico has shared her heartbreaking final voicemail with him.

Australian Callum Robinson was visiting Baja California in Mexico with his brother Jake Robinson, 30, as well as their American friend, Jack Carter Rhoad, 30.

All three members of the group were found dead at the bottom of a 50-foot-deep well in Baja, California.

The tourists were reportedly last seen alive in the city of Ensenada on April 27, before failing to check into their pre-booked accommodation.

Mexican authorities initially said they believed they had been victims of a violent robbery in an attempt to “steal their tires.”

As CBS reported, the state’s chief prosecutor, Maria Elena Andrade Ramirez, said during a press conference: “They approached with the intention of stealing their vehicle and taking the tires and other parts to put on the older model pickup they were driving. »

Callum, 33, left his girlfriend, Emily Horwath, a voicemail contacting her, which would become the last message he sent her.

Horwath posted the last touching message she received from him on her Instagram page, Australian newspaper 7 News reported.

In the post, Callum said: “Happy Tuesday! Good morning.

“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.”

In a caption to the post, she also paid tribute to her late partner, writing: “This man changed my life in ways I can’t even express in words. »

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

She added: “Tell your people you love them. “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 men’s deaths have raised fears about the safety of tourists traveling to Mexico.

Responding to these concerns, Baja California Governor Marina del Pilar Ávila said: “Baja California is and will continue to be a state with safe tourism for the thousands of people who visit us from the rest of the country and of the world.

“I send my condolences and solidarity to the families during this difficult time.”

The three men were found with gunshot wounds, CBS reports.

Mexican and American authorities are currently investigating the tragedy and three people have been arrested in Mexico in connection with the killings.
