Mum seeking answers on son's death

11:40 am on 30 December 2011

The mother of a teenager whose death a year ago remains a mystery, will return to Coromandel in a bid to find answers.

The body of Cem Erbay, 19, was discovered near Duck Pond Reserve in Matarangi on 3 January. He had been missing for three days.

Sharon Harvey has posted fliers around Coromandel hoping someone's memory will be jogged and they will come forward with information about her son's movements a year ago.

Police have concluded he had fallen down a bluff and died, but Dr Harvey says eyewitness accounts of her son's movements contradict that.

She will be at Duck Pond Reserve on New Year's Day from 9am - 2pm.
