ABOUT 100 people have turned out in Burleigh Heads to help spread awareness for the search for missing boy William Tyrrell.
The local Walk 4 William coincided with others across the country, to mark one year since the then-three-year-old disappeared from his grandmother’s house in Kendall, on the NSW north coast.
Earlier: FOR ONE agonising year, an Australian family has searched for answers to find their missing little boy.
Three-year-old William Tyrrell disappeared from his grandmother’s house in Kendall, on the NSW north coast, on September 12 last year.
To mark the one year anniversary, people are gathering in Kendall and across Australia to Walk 4 William.
The events will launch the Where’s William week, which aims to raise awareness of his disappearance and promote child safety in general.
Gold Coasters are being encouraged to head to Justins Park in Burleigh Heads to be involved.
The local 2km Walk 4 William will begin at Burleigh Heads beach at 10.30am, with participants to gather at 10am.
Red and blue balloons and ribbons will decorate the walk. You can also come dressed as Spider-man, William’s favourite superhero and the costume he was wearing when he disappeared.
