Police confirm body not missing backpacker
POLICE have confirmed a body discovered in Byron Bay bushland is not missing backpacker Theo Hayez.
Emergency services were called to the scene around 3.30pm Sunday, and are not treating the death as suspicious.
It comes six months after the Belgian teen was last seen leaving a Byron Bay bar.
A police theory which believes Theo wandered towards the coastline and fell into the water has been rejected by the Hayez family.
Volunteers continue to search the area.
