Savannah Payne, who’s legal name is Tara Payne, went missing in the early morning hours of Tuesday, March 23. She was out with friends celebrating her birthday at bars in Canton Square.

She was seen leaving a bar called Southern Provisions around 1:30 a.m. She was last spotted by the Canton Waterfront, near the Moorings community, around 3:30 a.m.

Her car was still where she parked it earlier in the night, according to her aunt, and her purse was found along Boston Street.

Several agencies, including the Baltimore Police Marine Unit and the Natural Resources Police, searched the water in the area over two days.

They found her remains Thursday afternoon just off the waters in the 1200 block of Dockside Circle.

Residents in the area say they heard commotion around the time of her disappearance, but police have not confirmed whether it’s related to the case.

On Monday, police reported her death was ruled accidental.

Payne grew up in Anne Arundel County and went to Winter Mills High School in Carroll County.

She worked at McGarvey’s Saloon and Oyster Bar in Annapolis and spent summers working at Macky’s Bayside Bar and Grill in Ocean City, Maryland, her father said.

Her father said she loves the beach, her brother and their family dog, Taco.

Savannah’s dad told WJZ his daughter was a good person with lots of friends and a loving family.

“Everyone loved her and she loved everyone,” Jimmy Payne said.

Jimmy Payne said going to the beach will never be the same.

“It’ll be much better,” he said. “Because I know she’s at peace and she’s at the beach.”

The family continues to look for answers.

“As far as the investigation, I don’t feel it’s wrapped up,” Jimmy Payne said. “We’re glad that Savannah was brought home to us, we’re thankful for the community for the outpouring of people from Canton, in the city.”

Payne’s remains were the medical examiner’s office to determine the official cause of her death. On Monday, they announced her death was ruled accidental.
