THE boyfriend of a missing pregnant teenager says he had no idea she was offering sexual services for money on internet dating sites.

Tiffany Taylor, 16, was five months pregnant when she was last seen leaving the motel she was living in to meet Rodney Wayne Williams, 60.

Police believe Williams killed her on the day she got into his car, July 12, but her body is yet to be found.

Ms Taylor's boyfriend Greg Hill told the Seven Network that she had been acting suspiciously but he did not know why.

The pair had been dating for four years and living at a Waterford West hotel, south of Brisbane, where Williams picked her up from.

"She told me she was meeting her uncle to get money all the time and having coffees and coming home," he said.

"But sometimes she was gone for a long time but I had my suspicions but I never really knew.

"I cared for Tiffany and loved her. She was special to me."

Search for remains of murdered, pregnant teen called off

THE search for the body of a missing pregnant teenager, in scrub northwest of Ipswich has been called off.

Tiffany Taylor, 16, was last seen leaving a Logan motel on July 12 with Rodney Wayne Williams, a 60-year-old man she had met on an internet dating site.

Williams was charged with her murder on Thursday.

Police and State Emergency Service crews scoured bushland off the Brisbane Valley Hwy between the Warrego Hwy and Fernvale, but were not successful.

About 40 SES crew members and 20 police, including on trail bike and horseback, were involved.

The search was called off about 3pm on Saturday and didn't resume yesterday.

Logan CIB Detective Senior Sergeant Tony Bristow said Williams had provided "a number of versions" of events to police which they were still investigating.

Det Sen Sgt Bristow said the terrain they searched on Saturday was thick bushland with some pastoral areas and pockets of thick land and various water courses.

He said Williams was understood to know the area well.

Tiffany's white Samsung smartphone has not been recovered and police believe it was dumped around the suburbs of Bundamba and Riverview.
