Friend of William Tyrrell’s grandmother questioned by police over the disappearance of the missing toddler.

Police have interviewed a fifth person over the case of missing toddler William Tyrrell, who vanished from his grandmother’s backyard nearly two years ago.

Detectives questioned Kim Loweke, best friends with William’s grandmother Natalie Collins, over her whereabouts on the day the three-year-old went missing, reports Daily Mail.

According to Nine’s ACA, police became interested when the two women applied to the Department of Housing for a three-bedroom home in western Sydney.

Ms Loweke also has personal links with Tony Jones and William Spedding – two convicted paedophiles that were both named as persons of interest in the case.

Ms Loweke admitted that the set of coincidences were strange, but denied having anything to do with William Tyrrell’s disappearance.

‘I was thinking about how the situation is so weird, it is weird. I can’t work it out, me minds going a hundred miles an hour going what’s going on,’ she told ACA.

I don’t know why my name’s come up in the situation I seriously don’t know,’ she said, trailing off with laughter.

Ms Loweke owns an old silver Holden VX Commodore – similar in shape and colour to the description of one of the cars that was parked outside William’s grandmother’s home in Kendall, NSW, when he went missing on September 12, 2014.

The cars – described as a dark grey old-model, medium-size sedan and an old white station wagon – became the focus of police inquiries early on in the case.

Detectives reportedly took photos of Ms Loweke’s car.

Ms Collins said it was ‘disgusting’ that police had questioned her best friend and cast doubt over the pair’s intentions with requesting a new home.

‘That’s just disgusting, I’m sorry, because like I wouldn’t hide him. Like Kim said it would be good if we could find him, we would hand him over anyway,’ she said.

In a statement released to ACA, NSW Police said it would not be appropriate to comment on who was being questioned by police as it was an ‘ongoing investigation.’

William’s family have stated, “Our lives changed forever on the morning of the 12th of September 2014, when somebody abducted our little boy. The air was still. There wasn’t a sound. Not a bird. Not a voice. Not William’s voice when we called to him, ‘Where are you?’ There was nothing…

“From the moment we realised William was taken, the grief we felt was indescribable. We couldn’t understand how the sun could still shine, how there could be laughter in the world while our little boy was not with us.

“Every passing day we keep hope in our hearts that the ‘somebody’ who knows where William is will come forward so our beautiful little boy can come home to us where he belongs.” William’s Mummy and Daddy.

Somebody knows something. Somebody saw something. Somebody can help bring William home. Is that somebody you? Call Crime Stoppers now on 1800 333 000 or contact their online reporting page nsw.crimestoppers.com.au.

  • My heart breaks every time i hear his name. Someone knows something about what has happened. I just pray he comes home. His poor parents would be going crazy not knowing.


  • I just hope that this little boy is ok.


  • I hope somebody comes forward soon and helps get him back to his parents where he belongs. It’s heartbreaking what they have gone through missing this little boy. Come home soon William


  • Somebody, please somebody come forward. My heart breaks for his family. It’s the not knowing. Come on, please bring him home or lead someone to him.


  • Hope and pray this leads really to William being found !! Wishing strength and blessings to the family


  • I think about William a lot. I hope he is found safe. I can’t imagine what his family is going through


  • I think about little William often, I really hope they get some answers soon, and hopefully find him safe!!!!


  • It would be wonderful if this new lead actually leads somewhere. Saw this reported on ACA – amazing the close connections of those mentioned.


  • im sorry but that woman is lying. and if shes acquainted in any way to pedophiles who were questioned then she needs to be kept under a close close watch by the police. her comments and the way she said them were very concerning in my personal view.


  • I am wondering why this woman wasn’t questioned previously. It may not have been her in the car. It may have one of her associates.


  • This little darling has been missing for far too long. As the headline says, someone somewhere knows something. I can only imagine the grief and suffering of his family


  • I really really hope this family gets answers.


  • I have never forgotten about William, the not knowing what happened to him is the worst. I hope this new lead helps in some way….
