Locals will join family members of missing Belgian backpacker Théo Hayez for a sunset gathering to bring awareness to his disappearance on September 15.
With the teenager’s father Laurent Hayez arriving back in the Byron Shire on Fathers’ Day, the event has been organised to support him and Theo’s other loved ones.
‘Our hopeful intentions will be ignited by an Indigenous fire ceremony, alongside music and poetry,’ one of the organisers of the event Jaclyn Scott said.
‘We will also be joined by Loren O’Keeffe, Founder and CEO of the Missing Persons Advocacy Network (MPAN) who will highlight the importance of community collaboration in Missing Persons cases.
‘Please come along to this beautiful family- friendly event to surround Théo’s family with the love and support Byron Bay is renowned for.’
This event will be held on Clarke’s beach, beginning at 5pm sharp.
Attendees are asked to bring a candle.
