A nightmare in paradise in Nine’s special investigation on 60 Minutes

NIGHTMARE IN PARADISE

In all likelihood Théo Hayez from Belgium is the most well-known backpacker to travel to Australia in a long time. But his fame is for all the wrong reasons. Three years ago, Théo vanished in Byron Bay. His disappearance was completely out of character – one minute he was seen leaving a local bar, the next minute, nothing. Speculation about what might have happened to the young tourist has been intense, but so far an endless number of theories have led nowhere.

In a special edition of 60 MINUTES, Tara Brown and former homicide detective Gary Jubelin retrace 18-year-old Théo’s last known steps using critical GPS data collected from his mobile phone. Brown also travels to Belgium to meet Théo’s distraught family. Speaking publicly for the first time, Vinciane Delforge makes a heartfelt plea for more information about the baffling disappearance of her beautiful and precious son.
