Police renew calls for information on William Tyrrell’s 10th birthday

Detectives have renewed their calls for information into the disappearance of NSW boy William Tyrrell as they marked his 10th birthday.

The boy was just three-years-old when he disappeared while playing in the yard of his grandmother’s home in Kendall on the morning of September 12, 2014.

It sparked a frantic search involving hundreds of local residents and emergency service workers but he was never found.


Police believe his disappearance was the result of human intervention.

Despite several coordinated searches and a $1 million reward for information, the search for William continues.

Homicide Squad Commander, Detective Superintendent Danny Doherty, acknowledged the continued strength and courage of William Tyrrell’s families today on what would have been his 10th birthday.

“The NSW Police Force remains committed to finding William Tyrrell with the Homicide Squad’s Strike Force Rosann continuing to conduct investigations into the circumstances surrounding his disappearance,” Det Supt Doherty said.

“Detectives are reviewing all evidence obtained since William’s disappearance and have recently sought the assistance of numerous experts to ensure no stone is left unturned.

“Whilst the coronial inquest is yet to be finalised, the investigation is ongoing, and the strike force team is actively engaged with the Deputy State Coroner to ensure answers are provided to William’s loved ones.

“We acknowledge that today marks another important milestone without answers for the families and as such, our focus remains on the investigation to find out what happened to William.

“As our inquiries continue, we encourage anyone in the community with information – no matter how big or small – to come forward, so we may provide answers to his families,” Det Supt Doherty.
