Last week, an 18-year-old Belgian tourist disappeared in Australia. The Australian police announced the disappearance of Theo Hayez, a Belgian “backpacker”. Certainly, he was last seen eleven days ago in the town of Byron Bay, in the east of Australia.
The police agents said in a statement that the young man would have gone last May 31 to a pub in the tourist city, which is 965 kilometers from Sydney.
On the other hand, the security forces were not alerted to Hayez’s disappearance until Thursday, June 13. It was strange that he did not return to his hostel as planned. During the investigation, the police found his passport in his personal belongings.
In addition, the inspector Matthew Kehoe has explained that Hayez has not carried out any financial transactions or used his mobile phone. For this reason, there are serious questions about his well-being and physical integrity.
Finally, the agents, local volunteers, and other people have started a search operation near the town and in the nearby areas.
Certainly, the young man planned to leave the hostel and travel to Melbourne before returning to Belgium last week.
