The search for the little boy in the Spiderman suit will today return to where the mystery first began in 2014.
Since William Tyrell’s 2014 disappearance, there has been no trace of the then three-year-old, but police are hoping to change that with a new operation announced yesterday.
An extensive, large-scale forensic search will begin today in Kendall on the NSW mid north-coast where William went missing from his foster grandmother’s front yard.
It is unclear what triggered the new search.
The ABC reports that police are not expecting a major breakthrough or a body.
Instead, police indicated the difference between this search and the initial search when William disappeared is a mindset.
“The initial search, while extensive, was focused only on finding William — a little boy who was lost — and not with a view of deliberate human intervention,” police said in a statement.
The four week investigation will take a different view with hopes of finding something they may have previously missed.
His foster family have never given up hope of finding William, and on Wednesday morning posted a message to social media.
“Today marks 1370 heartbreaking days since William disappeared. William’s loved ones are, and will forever be indebted to the tremendous ongoing commitment of NSW Police; in particular, Strike Force Rosann who have been absolutely relentless in their ongoing investigation in the search for William. Since that tragic day on Friday 12 September 2014, hearts across Australia have been broken, but we have and will continue to maintain unwavering faith in NSW Police and carry hope in our hearts that William will be found. He is in our hearts always… Always…”
