I just want to find him so that we can have a funeral and closure. Lee Hall Bereft mother: Lee Hall, mother of missing man, Brett Hall, with his photo. As the mother of missing man Brett Hall prepares for Christmas with- out her son she says that she will never give up hope of finding him. Brett Hall was reported missing on Tuesday, May 31 having last been seen on his remote lifestyle block off the River Rd, Whanganui, and police are treating his disap- pearance as a homicide. He would have turned 48 on December 4 and with Christmas just around the corner it is a tough time for Mr Hall's family. I wished him Happy Birthday, but it's very hard because we don't even have a grave site to go to where we can take flowers and have a chat with him,'' said Mr Hall's mother Lee. Lee Hall has had her share of tragedy, losing her husband 10 years ago in a work-related acci- dent, and her 19-year-old grandson five years ago in a car accident. In May, Brett Hall went missing then in October this year Lee's mother died. No Christmas decorations will be going up in her home this year. Instead the cards Lee was sent when her son went missing are on display along with a yellow ribbon from a friend that is pinned to the front door. The cards and the ribbon will stay until Brett is found. I just can't take them down. None of us actually want Christmas this year apart from the children. After my hus- band was killed it took about four years before I could even put a dec- oration up; the same after my grandson. I'm just hurting. I just want to find him so that we can have a funeral and closure.'' Lee has just one message this Christmas. Just tell us where you've buried him, that's all, even anonymously. For God's sake let us have closure, put our minds at rest, because until we get closure I don't think I will be at rest or at peace again; not until we've found him.'' Six staff at Whanganui Police continue to work on the disappear- ance of Brett Hall. The extensive searching of his property has been reviewed and further searches have not been ruled out. Detective Senior Sergeant Dave Kirby said: It is a trying and upsetting time for Mr Hall's family leading into Christmas, not having a family member to be part of Christmas. I want to get some clos- ure for the family and we are deter- mined as a team to do that. It is a complex investigation, mainly due to the remoteness of the areainwhichhewaslastseen. . . There is no doubt in our mind that he has been the subject of foul play.''
