A second search for the body of missing Cronulla man Matthew Leveson has failed to find anything.

It comes just two months after police called off the initial search in the Royal National Park at Waterfall.

The new area being searched this week is believed to be close to the previous site.

Homicide detectives were led to the initial site by Mr Leveson's former boyfriend Michael Atkins, who had previously been acquitted of murder by a jury.

Mr Atkins, struck a deal last week with NSW Attorney-General Gabrielle Upton that granted him immunity from prosecution for perjury or contempt of court in exchange for leading police to Mr Leveson's body.

Mr Leveson, 20, was last seen leaving the popular ARQ nightclub in Sydney's Taylor Square with Mr Atkins, then 44, in the early hours of September 23, 2007.

In a Facebook post, Mrs Leveson said the family had been at the site for the past three days.

‘’It has been heart wrenching to say the least. No words can ever describe how we are feeling at the moment,’’ she wrote.

The inquest into Matthew’s disappearance will resume at Glebe Coroner’s Court in March.
