Niamh is always with us in spirit and we will always honour the 18 years she filled us with her brightness.Brian Maye
No one has ever been charged in connection with her disappearance.
The man who last saw her alive, fellow fruit picker Jason Nicholson, committed suicide in Brisbane after being arrested for rape in 2004.
Despite extensive investigations over the years, including another publicised push in 2015, no trace of Niamh has ever been found.
Police inquiries were hindered with the suicide of Nicholson, a person of interest in her disappearance.
Riverina Police District are continuing investigations, together with the State Crime Command's Unsolved Homicide Unit and Missing Persons Registry, under Strike Force Yola.
The investigation is currently being formally reviewed under the new unsolved homicide framework.
Niamh Maye's father, Brian Maye, remembered his daughter as a happy and creative young woman with a great sense of humour.
"Niamh is always with us in spirit and we will always honour the 18 years she filled us with her brightness," Mr Maye said.
"Not a day goes by we don't think of Niamh and the life she would have lived. We miss our beautiful, loving, cheeky, fun daughter, sister and aunt.
As a family, we have never given up hope that we might be able to find Niamh and give her a proper resting place.Anne Maye
"On behalf of our family, we would like to thank the local community for their support and police for their dedication to finding Niamh - we hope one day we can bring her home," Mr Maye said.
Her mother Anne Maye, said her daughter was a devoted and much-loved sister and aunt to her six siblings and one niece.
"As a family, we have never given up hope that we might be able to find Niamh and give her a proper resting place," Mrs Maye said.
"Niamh's memory lives on with us - including eleven new nieces and nephews, two of whom carry her name as their middle name, in honour of the aunt they never had the opportunity to meet.
"After 18 years of unanswered questions, we're asking anyone in the community who may have information to please come forward," Mrs Maye said.
