William Tyrrell’s parents have released a Christmas poem to their son, who disappeared from a home on the New South Wales mid-north coast over a year ago.

Detective Chief Inspector Gary Jubelin from the Homicide Squad said police would continue working on the case throughout the holiday period.

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, William’s parents revealed his sister was struggling with his disappearance, as the family worked hard to protect her from publicity surrounding the case.

“It’s just huge and really unfair that she is has been forced into this situation by a person who thought at the time (and still thinks it’s OK) to steal a child away from his family,”

“As she gets older and grasps the concept and is able to understand the situation in more detail, she will need to deal and manage what people say and share with others is going to be really tough for her,” her dad added.

Our Christmas Wish for William – From Mum & Dad

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 mummy’s and daddy’s 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.

We love you, our darling boy.

You are never far from our thoughts.

We remember everything about you.

Your amazing laugh,

Your kindness and the love you share with your sister,

Your complete adoration of your Daddy,

Your funny faces for Mummy,

Your kisses,

Your hugs and your tears…

We remember your first words, your first steps, your first fears.

We miss everything about you our beautiful little boy.

We miss your laughter,

Your smell.

Your giggles,

Your singing, and your little cry.

We miss you running through the house.

We miss you playing with your sister and your friends.

We miss you running up to Daddy when he comes home from work.

We miss you jumping into our bed when you’d wake us up for cuddles and kisses.

We miss you cuddling Little Tara and Monkey and playing with Fireman Sam,

You racing Daddy on your bike and the big smile on your face when you’d look up at us while we held your little hand.

We miss you every single minute of every single day, our special little man.

It’s Christmas time again, our second Christmas without you. But wherever you may be;

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…

We will love you forever and keep hope in our hearts that soon someone will come forward, that someone will say something so you will find your way home to us…

All our love and hugs,

Daddy, Mummy, your sister, Jetty Spaghetti and Chrissy and all your loving family
