The 18-year-old was last seen when he left the bar of the Cheeky Monkey & # 39; s city at around 11 p.m. on May 31
The manager of the Byron Bay nightclub where the Belgian backpacker Theo Hayez was last seen, has spoken for the first time.
Cheeky Monkey & # 39; s manager Colm Brennan said that Theo, 18, had been in the tourist bar for a few hours and had only two drinks before being asked to leave.
& # 39; He sat down, he talked, he danced and that was it, & # 39; said Mr. Brennan.
& # 39; He left OK, he just walked down the street. & # 39;
Mr. Brennan, himself a former backpacker, said Theo's & # 39; s disappearance from the vacation hotspot was & # 39; very sad & # 39;
& # 39; He was just starting – only 18 – and has disappeared. & # 39;
Theo was last seen on leaving Cheeky Monkey & # 39; s around 11 p.m. on May 31.
A few hours later his phone gave his last signal at the Cape Byron lighthouse.
The Belgian police cooperated with the Australian detectives in Theo's hometown to help merge the last 18-year-old movements.
They will now travel to the suburbs of the coast to breathe new life into the search and it is predicted that they have met the locals who were looking for Theo since he was first feared of missing, 10Daily reported.

Theo & # 39; s mother Vinciane Delforge has also arrived in the country to help find her son, and will join his father Laurent Hayez and dozens of locals who refuse to give up the search.
Hayez promised not to return before he found his son.
The police suspended the three-week search for the teenager over the weekend after admitting that they had been confused by the case and had struggled to find new evidence that could shed light on his disappearance.
Hayez argued last Monday for an emotional plea for help, begging the encrypted chat service WhatsApp to give police access to his son's latest known conversations
Byron Bay residents have refused to give up Theo and are actively looking for him, despite the fact that the police have suspended the official search
No decision has been made whether the search will be definitively canceled, the NSW police confirming that they will review the situation every day.
But Detective Inspector Matt Kehoe said he would not give up and said he was & # 39; strengthened to continue our efforts to find the teenager & # 39; after spending time with Theo & # 39; s family.
Local Christos Tsesmetzis, who has been assisting with the search since day one, said they want to get in touch with absent homeowners whose properties in the region are empty.
They want to search backyards and gardens for anything that may be useful when searching, including the hat he was wearing or his cell phone.

The company provided what information they could but could not access the content of the messages.
Mrs. Delforge has had to speak since she arrived in Australia, but has told a local news center in Belgium that she & # 39; would like to believe he just met a girl and had an affair & # 39 ;.
& # 39; But he just isn't, that's not his style. & # 39;
She said her son was a & # 39; meticulous planner & # 39; was who had thoroughly investigated his gap year to Australia in the months prior to leaving his hometown.
& # 39; He is a conscientious, organized, responsible, and observant boy & # 39 ;, she said.
More than $ 70,000 was raised through a GoFundMe family page, part of which was used to help Mr. Hayez fly to Australia.
