Police have refocused the search for missing Belgian backpacker Theo Hayez on the cliffs around the Byron Bay lighthouse.

In what is being reported as among the last physical searches for the 18-year-old by police, specialist abseilers have been searching the cliffs on either side of the lighthouse.

Three police observers from Belgium are also believed to be in attendance.

The last ‘ping’ from Theo’s phone came from the area around the lighthouse, around 12 hours after he was asked to leave Cheeky Monkeys bar in the Byron CBD at around 11pm on May 31.

The community search which had been put on hold last week due to bad weather has also resumed, with volunteers meeting this morning at the Tallow Beach car park.

‘The community volunteer search group is on the ground daily, weather permitting,’ one of the volunteers, Jacalyn Scott said.
