Her son is missing. Faye Leveson has been forced to accept that Matthew will not be coming home.

He's a beautiful boy, he wouldn't harm a fly. He's got lovely friends, his work is missing him, Please, if you know something, heard something that night, that morning, please come to the police and tell them. It's been almost six weeks since the 20-year-old disappeared, his car found in a park near his Cronulla unit.

His male partner of 15 months has told police they went to sleep on Sunday morning. Matt was gone when he woke up. His brother Peter had seen the couple the night before at one of Mr Leveson's favourite Darlinghurst nightspots. That's where he last saw Matthew alive. Happy, happy, just dancing around the place. Security cameras here at Arc Nightclub have given investigators valuable images

of the last night that Matt Leveson was out with friends. They're now almost certain he was murdered, but they won't say exactly how they're sure he met with foul play. The circumstances of the disappearance are highly unusual. We don't believe that he's chosen to go missing. His family today appealed for help from the public. They don't believe he would have taken his own life. Baffling, baffling.

he was looking at term deposits for investments, he was looking at buying a new car. Miranda police will accept anonymous calls from anyone who has information about this disappearance. Please come forward, I want my son back. Evan Batten, Ten News. A moving farewell today for Dean Shillingsworth, the little boy found dead in a suitcase in a Sydney pond.

His body has been laid to rest in the family's home town of Brewarrina, in the State's north-west. Ten Reporter James Boyce is among hundreds of people there for the service. Well, it been a very private but sombre ceremony for Dean Shillingsworth, the 2-year-old boy who was found only two weeks ago by children just playing around an Ambarvale pond, his body found in a suitcase.

Now, he's been buried here today in Brewarrina

following a very simple ceremony and service in the township

in their community hall. Around 500 people attened here today, mostly from his family on his father's side and local community members. Now, they didn't invite the media inside. They wanted to be able to just have their moment in privacy and peace. As they sang some songs, said some prayers and had a moment of reflection on Dean's life,

one of his great aunts, Rita Wright, was one of the ones to get up and speak to the congregation. One of the things she did mention to them was just the fragility of life and how it really shows with Dean's passing how much you have to cherish your children. Now, after the service, he was taken away in the hearse and it followed by a huge number of cars for what is seen as a bit of a traditional thing here in Brewarrina. They take the hearse and the congregation followed down the main drag of 'Bre',

as the locals call it. Here was taken here to the ceremony where the locals gathered around his burial site Here, they released hundreds of balloons into the air before saying some final prayers and their final goodbyes to the boy who, back in Ambarvale, has been nicknamed the little Lake Angel from where he was found. Here the cemetary is known as the place angels rest. Back to you.

The world's biggest cancer study has just been released and its findings are disturbing. Among the revelations, one-third of cancers are related to what we eat. The evidence is overwhelming - the fatter we are, the greater the risk of cancer. What we eat and drink, our weight and lack of exercise can increase the risk of getting at least six types of the disease. It's just not a question of simply being fat. The evidence that's accumulated is that it is best to be as lean as possible. A 5-year review of 7,000 studies with input from 500,000 scientists found obesity will soon rival smoking as a cancer risk. So we should try to be thin without being underweight. Lack of exercise is a major factor - aim to do at least 30 minutes a day.

Diet, of course, is very important too. It says toss out bacon products and hot dogs,

eat less meat, drink less wine and sugary drinks. On the plus side, young mothers can reduce the threat of breast cancer by breastfeeding. But every kilogram you've put on after age 21 increases risk of cancer. Most people say it makes trying to lead a healthy lifestyle

too confusing. Apparently everything causes cancer these days. Next week they'll bring something else out to say you can eat them. I think everyone needs to cut back, I know I do.

OK, so here's the good news, particularly for those who love a good steak - another recent report says red meat is actually a vital part of our diet. of iron, it's our most important source of zinc, it's our most important source of vitamin B12, of omega-3s. They say we are not eating enough. Red meat is not part of the problem here, red meat is part of the solution. Frank Coletta, Ten News. Tim Webster with sport and Willie Mason's days as a Bulldog could well be over.

Yes, Mason wants out of the club, but it's now shaping as a bigger revolt. Adam Hawse joins us, and it's an all-out fight between the club boss and its biggest player?

Back home, the sobering reality of a potential contempt of court was dismissed by his lawyers. I haven't even considered the point, but I'm absolutely certain my client is not in contempt of court. The AFL has distanced itself from the latest saga, saying, while it's concerned for his health and welfare, as far as football's concerned, he's off the radar. It would be very, very difficult in the foreseeable future

to see him return to football, given his issues with his health and welfare. While the Players Association says he could make an unlikely comeback, any potential opponents aren't too concerned.

I would rather have no charge at all, but when you can't afford it, you can't afford it. Some of the funds will go towards a new national development program

which will be highlighted by the introduction of a national youth league, a national women's league,

an Australia-wide and improved coaching. A further component will be a compulsory move away from large pitches for children under 12 years of age to small-sided games. Hopefully it will lead to a better, more positive experience for the kids coming into the game.

The benefits of the program are only expected to be reaped in the long-term.

The impact at the very junior level won't occur for maybe 10-15 years, but we have to start now to achieve that in that time period. Fitting into that time frame is Australia's bid to host the 2018 World Cup finals, Frank Lowy hoping for a Socceroo-Brazil final on Australian soil.

It is a big ask of ourselves, but if you don't dream, you don't get there. Neil Cordy, Ten News. The only surprise from Australian cricket selectors is the size of the team they've announced for next week's first Test against Sri Lanka. It's a 13-man squad. Phil Jaques won the vacant opener's spot, while six bowlers will fight it out for four Test caps at the Gabba. Phil Jaques has waited a lifetime for the phone call he got at 1:30 this afternoon.

Mike Hussey knows what that's like. Nervous wait. for a bit, but no. It was exciting, mate. Jaques has been there before, twice called up to cover injury. This time he'll be given an extended run. It feels so much more special this time around. You know, getting your first one is really special, but you know to know that there's a spot there I can make my own, it is a special feeling

and, you know, I just can't wait for it, it's gonna be great.

I think he really deserves his spot. than jaquesy has. No-one's made more runs Jaques to fill the void left by Justin Langer's retirement. As expected Queensland quick Mitchell Johnson is in line to replace Glenn McGrath.

It'd be a home ground Test debut. I'll have friends and family there, obviously and hopefully all Brisbane, well, Queensland will be behind me so it'll be very exciting for me.

but he's no guarantee to play. Shaun Tait also included in the squad. For now selectors have delayed their decision on the most contentious spot in the side, the spinner role, We're really just going to assess the conditions up there and think who - they're both very different, obviously, and we'll see how they're both going in the lead-up to the game.

Stranded on 198 Test wickets for the past 18 months, MacGill is eyeing off a milestone at the Gabba. I sort of think I've only got two wickets to get there and if I get a game I'll think two minutes isn't enough, really. I think it'll be a case of like, "Yep, got that, now move on." The squad assembles in Brisbane on Sunday. Mate, I'll see you on Sunday anyway. Paul Cocharne, Ten News.
