Parents of missing toddler William Tyrrell release heartbreaking Christmas poem

The parents of missing New South Wales toddler William Tyrrell have written a heartbreaking Christmas poem to their little boy.

William, 3, suddenly vanished while playing outside his grandmother’s home at Kendall on the NSW mid-north coast on September 12 last year.

He has not been seen or heard from since, with police believing he was abducted.


In a poem released today and posted online by the ABC, the toddlers parents have said that they hope their son is safe and happy.

“We wish that you are safe.

“That you are happy, that you are being loved. But most of all, we wish that you were here with us.

“It’s Christmas time. It’s a time when stockings are hung by shimmering trees and happy little ones make their wishes.

“It’s a time when mummys and daddys tuck children into bed with love and kisses only to be awakened by squeals of excitement because Santa has visited.

“Christmas is a time for happiness. It’s a time when families come together and hold each other tight, but not our family and not this Christmas night while our beautiful little boy William is still missing, absent from our sight.”

This is the second Christmas the Tyrrell’s have spent without their son.

Anyone with information into the disappearance of the toddler is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
