We believe we?ve found Christian

By SAMANTHA TURNBULL

HOPES of finding pregnant former Mullumbimby woman Moi Vogel have diminished after the body of her husband Christian Nott was believed to have been found in a makeshift morgue in Phuket.

Moi's brother, Peter Vogel, a former Mullumbimby High student, returned to Australia with three of his old schoolmates yesterday.

"It's not easy to go home not knowing where Moi is," Peter said.

"We believe we've found Christian. There were some personal things that were theirs with a body. But we have to wait for DNA tests to be sure."

Peter and Moi's mother, Joy Vogel, of Mullumbimby, were yesterday unable to comment on the discovery.

A friend of Joy's said Christian's passport had been found, but she had received no official word on the identity of the body.

Christian's sister, Fiona, said her family was also waiting for confirmation the body found was her brother.

Moi and Christian, of Pymble, were on their honeymoon north of Phuket when the tsunami struck.
