Police have cordoned off a semi-rural property in Bonny Hills, as the search for missing toddler William Tyrell continues. 

William, 3, went missing from his grandmother’s home on September 12 last year while playing a game of hide and seek.

A 10 kilometre search of the surrounding area failed to find any trace of him.

This lack of evidence has been the main stumbling block in the toddler’s disappearance, with Superintendent Paul Fehon saying late last year “We are open to any possibility, including human intervention.”

The police’s main priority over the last few months has been to sort through and prioritise the “hundreds of CrimeStoppers reports which have been received from the public.”

On Tuesday night, police searched a pawn shop in Laurieton, seizing items including a computer and a mattress. Two people were questioned, however they were released without charge.

Excavation crews then arrived at the shop owner’s home early this morning, with Fairfax reporting that police are planning on draining a septic tank and grease trap on the property.

The property’s residents are believed to be an elderly couple that have custody of at least three of their grandchildren. According to neighbours, the couple have been renting for the last few years.

While William’s parents are unable to speak publicly about the disappearance, Superintendent Fehon expressed that the last few months have been “extremely difficult” for them, particularly having to endure “Christmas without young William”.

We can’t even begin to imagine what William’s family is going through, and we would like to extend our thoughts and prayers to them at this incredibly difficult time.

  • What is happening with this case? Haven’t heard anything at all – I’m from Melbourne. My little guy is about the same age and we play hide and seek all the time. Very scary.

  • WHY DID IT TAKE SO LONG FOR THE POLICE TO START LOOKING FOR HIM WHY DID THEY JUST SIT AND WAIT FOR OTHERS THERE WAS LOTS OF TALK IN TOWN AND WHEN YOU LIVE IN A TOWN YOU KNOW WHO YOU CAN AND WHO YOU CANNOT TRUST BUT NO CITY COPS DO NOT KNOW COUNTRY PEOPLE

  • This is just heartbreaking, to lose a child is unthinkable but to have no idea of what has happened or where he is would tear you apart, I hope they have a breakthrough soon so that the family can have some closure on this, no matter what the outcome, and lets hope that it is a happy outcome. I also feel for anyone who may be innocent and become involved through no fault of their own as this would be devastating as well, my thoughts and prayers are with all, including the emergency services people who have worked tirelessly for months.
