Relatives of missing backpacker Theo Hayez will descend on Byron Bay next month with high hopes of solving the mystery of his disappearance.

The 18-year-old from Belgium was last seen leaving the Cheeky Monkeys nightclub in the coastal northern NSW town on May 31, 2019 at about 11pm. He was never seen again.

A two-week inquest will begin on November 29th to determine the likely events immediately before and after Theo's disappearance.

Theo's mother, father, brother and grandmother have all been given approval to enter Australia to attend the inquest. They're expected to arrive on November 24, and will likely avoid Australia's mandatory quarantine program which will come to an end on November 1.

Theo Hayez in 2019 was a 19-year old Belgian man who had been visiting Australia on a working holiday visa--these people are commonly referred to as backpackers in Australia. After visiting with some family in Australia, he was on his way south to fly back home to Belgium. Of note, he looked several times at his phone for directions back to the hostel as he went toward the beach but never took those directions. He also sent several messages, including to family back home, throughout the night. Theo also played a small part of a YouTube comedy video he enjoyed from back home.

Interstate relatives, including Theo's cousins and godfather, will also travel to Byron Bay, but there are concerns about how they'll afford the accommodation during peak travel periods.

The inquest will also coincide with Schoolies - driving up prices further and limiting the accommodation options available to the family.

Byron Shire Mayor Michael Lyon admitted the town's accommodation was fully-booked until April 2022 with holidayers eager to escape Sydney after lockdown.

'Traveling in Australia just as flights and borders have opened up, coupled with finding accommodation during a peak tourist period after two dreadful years of searching for Theo is presenting some difficulties,' Theo's godfather Jean-Philippe Pector said.

Theo Hayez , a Belgian national, had spent almost a year traveling around Australia. He had reportedly been apprehensive about the trip initially, wondering whether it was worth delaying his engineering studies for. However, he ultimately decided he wanted to go visit various friends and family around Cheeky Monkey’s has a bad reputation around town. In the early 2000’s, it was ranked as one of the most violent bars in Australia and every Byron local you meet seems to have a strong opinion about Cheeky Monkey’s. More recently, it was purchased by a reputable company that runs multiples bars

Theo Hayez 's family have not given up hope on finding the missing teenager as the one year anniversary of his disappearance approaches. The Belgian backpacker vanished on May 31 last year after leaving Cheeky Monkey's bar in Byron Bay, northern New South Wales. 'We know that many people are struggling at the moment and we are so grateful for all the different ways that people continue to show their support and their love.' Theo 's parents, Vinciane Delforge and Laurent Hayez , released their own statement on Monday saying they 'missed their son very much'.

The family are concerned the chaos and stress of trying to plan where to stay will detract from the important task of getting the closure they need to move on with their lives.

'If any of you know of accommodation available locally that is not currently rented to Schoolies or others that could be made available at an affordable rate, we would be so grateful to hear from you,' Mr Pector said in a public call out to the local community.

He was inundated with offers to assist.

One woman offered her four-bedroom farmhouse for the duration of the inquest and however long after the family plan to stay in Byron Bay completely free of charge.

She said she and her husband will move in with relatives for the period to give the Hayez family space.

Several other residences were also offered up if there was not enough room at the initial place.

The desperate parents had vowed to continue the search with the help of local volunteers, but made the decision to return to home this week to be with Theo 's little brother. Mr Hayez issued an emotional statement on Wednesday, saying they are now dedicating their time to their youngest son who 'needs us as much as we need him.'

Other businesses have also offered their assistance by way of free meals, linen and groceries.

Byron Bay locals went above and beyond to help find Theo in the days after he was reported missing.

Mr Pector described the kindness of the community as 'a shining light through the dark times'.

Google Maps data pulled from Theo's phone on the night he disappeared revealed instead of returning to his hostel in the centre of town he headed towards Tallow Beach and the Cape Byron lighthouse.

Police have always held the working theory that Theo likely fell from the jagged cliff face and was swept away by the sea, with one of the largest missing person's investigations in Australian history finding nothing but his baseball cap.

But private investigators working with his family, along with an army of internet sleuths, believe something more sinister happened to the talented science and mathematics student, pointing to a 'WiFi handshake' with another mobile device as proof he was not alone.

Earlier this year, 25-year-old Jackson Stacker, became the latest traveller to vanish without a trace while touring Australia in a van gifted by his grandparents.

His parents, who live in Melbourne, didn't realise he was missing until August 24. It wasn't unusual for him to be 'off the grid' while travelling.

A day after they lodged a missing person report, Mr Stacker's remains were found in farmland not too far from his abandoned van.

After his father's initial plea for information relating to Mr Stacker's whereabouts, there were concerns among locals that his disappearance might've been linked to Hayez or Thea Liddle.

Ms Liddle's remains were found on Byron Bay's Tallow Beach Road July 2020.

Ms Liddle, a 42-year-old former microbiologist who became homeless, went missing five months after Hayez.

Like Hayez' parents, Mr Stacker's family feel there won't be any closure until they know exactly what happened to their son.

'Because his body had been in the elements so long, the autopsy wasn't able to reveal a cause of death so we don't know whether the death was self-inflicted, accidental or foul play,' Mr Stacker's father said.

'Systemic deficiencies' within NSW Police caused unnecessary trauma for families of missing persons, coroner finds

  'Systemic deficiencies' within NSW Police caused unnecessary trauma for families of missing persons, coroner finds It's been 34 years since Ursula Barwick went missing; the Sydney teenager's body unclaimed in a morgue mix up. Her family says they feel "justified" after a coroner ruled NSW Police's investigation was "inadequate".Coroner Derek Lee described "systemic deficiencies" which persisted for more than three decades within NSW Police, leaving Ursula's family without the answers they desperately sought.

He hopes that by sharing his son's tragic end publicly, it might jog the memory of someone in the area who saw Mr Stacker in the days leading to his death.

It's understood Mr Stacker's body was found lying under a tree in the field. His car keys were still in the ignition.

His parents only realised he was missing when they received a phone call from a woman hoping to buy the 25-year-old's van.

It had been parked on the side of the road at the Sleepy Hollow rest area in Pottsville for a month by the time the woman called.

'I had tried ringing Jackson a couple of times before that just to touch base with him but just got voicemail, I wasn't too concerned because it wasn't unusual for him to go out of contact sometimes,' his father Ian said.

'When we realised the van was at this roadside stop for a month, we put out a missing person search for him.'

Mr Stacker's remains were found the next day.

'This is really scary, Theo, Thea and now this young boy, really, really sad. I hope they figure this out,' one local said.

Tragic deaths and disappearances in and around Byron Bay

Theo Hayez

Theo, an 18-year-old Belgian backpacker, disappeared after a night out at the Cheeky Monkeys nightclub in May 2019.

He was not reported missing for five days.

In June last year, Hayez's cousin Lisa revealed that Google data had tracked Theo walking through thick bushland on the night of his disappearance, and suggested he could not have done so alone.

The strongest theory for Hayez's disappearance remains that the backpacker fell from cliffs and was washed out to sea.

UK probe rejects submarine link to French trawler sinking .
A British coroner on Friday concluded that the 2004 sinking of a French fishing trawler in UK waters, which killed five people, was an accident, rejecting claims it had been dragged down by a submarine. The inquest was held to re-examine the circumstances in which the Bugaled Breizh sank suddenly off Cornwall, southwest England, despite good weather. Lawyers for the French victims' families had argued that a submarine on exercises in the area at the time could have become tangled with the boat's nets and pulled it down.But after hearing weeks of evidence at the High Court in London, Judge Nigel Lickley ruled: "The Bugaled Breizh sank...
