New focus in Tyrrell search case

- EVIN PRIEST

POLICE have confirmed new informatio­n has come to light about the 2014 disappeara­nce of threeyear-old William Tyrrell as strikeforc­e detectives revisited the location where he was last seen.

On Sunday, Strike Force Rosann marked the seven-year anniversar­y of the disappeara­nce of William by revisiting his foster grandmothe­r’s home at Kendall on the NSW mid-north coast.

“Further informatio­n has since come to light as part of our ongoing review of the materials gathered by investigat­ors since the moment William went missing seven years ago,” strike force leader David Laidlaw said.

Police did not comment further as to what the new informatio­n was, but last week it was reported detectives had renewed inquiries into a person of interest who had previously been dismissed.

Shortly before 10.30am on Friday, September 12, 2014, William was playing in the yard of his grandmothe­r’s home on Benaroon Dr, Kendall, when he vanished without a trace.

Emergency service workers, hundreds of residents and volunteers searched homes, forests, creeks and paddocks throughout rural Kendall but the boy could not be found.

A $1m reward for informatio­n that leads to the recovery of William remains in place.
