The mother of murdered NSW man Matthew Leveson has made a passionate plea to her son’s former lover to man up “and show us exactly where you buried my beautiful son” as a renewed search continues into a second week.
Diggers were back at work in dense bushland at the Royal National Park, south of Sydney, on Monday after a five-day search last week failed to uncover any trace of the 20-year-old’s body.
His parents – Mark and Faye Leveson – who’ve never given up hope of finding their son’s body after he went missing in 2007 – were back at the site first thing in the morning.
It’s expected they’ll be there again on Tuesday morning when the search resumes.
NSW Forensic Services officers were called on Monday when material of interest was uncovered.
But after an examination, it was determined to be from an echidna, a detective told an AAP photographer at the Royal National Park.
A NSW Police spokesman later confirmed there was no result on Monday and crews would return on Tuesday, weather permitting.
The search is the third in the past six months after police combed the site in November and January but failed to find any trace of Matthew.
