Théo Hayez is an 18-year old Belgian man who disappeared in the Cape Byron area. He was last sighted leaving Cheeky Monkey’ s bar in Byron Bay at approximately 11:00 pm on 31 May 2019. Hayez arrived in Australia in late 2018 on a working holiday visa.

A two-week coronial inquest will begin in Byron Bay on Monday with opening statements and a site visit to several key locations.

Theo Hayez DIDN'T drown: Belgian backpacker' s family rubbish police theory the 19-year-old stumbled to the Byron Bay lighthouse and plunged off a cliff into the ocean. Theo Hayez was last seen leaving the Cheeky Monkey' s bar in Byron Bay in May. Data from his phone tracked him near Cape Byron before his signal shut 'We believe that scenario is not likely, especially the fact that Theo would have been alone, without meeting anyone,' Mr Pector said. Mr Pector said the family still have many more unanswered questions about Theo ' s disappearance and have yet to hear anything from the coroner.

Mr Leonard' s disappearance came after compatriot Theo Hayez , 18, disappeared . Mr Hayez was last seen leaving a bar in Byron Bay at about 11pm on May 31. A Belgian backpacker who went missing in Sydney has been found after five days - as his family pray it will help in the search for compatriot Theo Hayez . Dorian Leonard was staying at Sydney Central Backpackers in Potts Point where he was last seen on Saturday. The 22-year-old was reported missing at Kings Cross Police Station and his family issued an urgent appeal to help find him.

"Our concern remains that only one scenario seems to have been the focus of the police investigation, using all of the limited time and resources of the local police, instead of allocating police time and energy to other paths of investigation," the family said in a statement.

"We believe this new review of Theo's disappearance should be under the guidance of specialised missing person investigators and the NSW Police Missing Persons Registry, which was established with its new structure just a few months after Theo went missing."

The family said it was their strong belief that Theo was not alone when he left Cheeky Monkeys.

"We believe someone from that night knows something about his disappearance," they said.

"We also hope a reward will be offered by the NSW government to encourage anyone with helpful information to come forward."

Happy ending 'not an option'

Theo's godfather Jean-Philippe Pector told the ABC he and the Hayez family had come to accept that there would be no happy ending to their ordeal.

The Disappearance of Theo Hayez . Byron Bay is one of the ultimate tourist destinations in Australia, with almost 2 million visitors descending upon this tiny town every year.

"Knowing Theo, there is no way he would disappear without giving any sign of life like that," he said.

"Realistically we know that the really happy ending is not an option.

"But it's really important to have some kind of release and to know really what happened.

"Not knowing is really the worst."

Community group Looking For Theo leader Renee Scott said members were doing all they could to support the Hayez family.

"We've organised all the cooking and accommodation, just practical things to reduce the cost of them being here," Ms Scott said.

"It's about making sure they know that they're supported and that the community does care."

Ms Scott said the group would be following the inquest closely.

"We'll be happy if we know that every avenue has been looked at," she said.

"Any steps that can be put in place to avoid this happening again would be of benefit to the community."

The inquest will begin on Monday in the Byron Bay courthouse before the state coroner Magistrate Teresa O'Sullivan.
