The grandmother of missing boy, William Tyrrell, has shared her grief about his mysterious disappearance almost 18-months-ago.

Speaking recently in an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Natalie Collins, William’s grandmother located in Western Sydney, said she’s lost hope that William might one day be found alive and her life has been torn apart.

The 56-year-old said she has contemplated suicide, that she’d been unable to hold onto her job, and that her 30-year-long relationship had suffered following her grandson’s suspected abduction.

“I wish he was alive, but I don’t think he is,” the 56-year-old told the paper. There are times when I just haven’t wanted to live.”

The loving Grandmother has recently secured a new job, but shared with the paper that oftentimes she cannot think through the tears and is regularly unable to sleep, because of the anxiety, concern and sadness surrounding William’s disappearance.

An unnamed family member revealed recently to the Daily Telegraph in an interview that they believed William was a victim to a Paedophile ring, as has been widely hypothesised throughout media circles.

‘It’s like reading a book of what I thought happened,’ the family member said.

William wore his now renowned Spiderman suit when he vanished on the morning of September 12, 2014 in a suspected abduction from a Kendall home on the NSW mid-north coast, south of Port Macquarie.

  • I hope one day we will know what happened.


  • Dont give up hope grandma hopefully william is still out there alive and well. Its all very sad but we cannot give up hope on this little boy.


  • Gosh, the poor poor family, it must be hell,,,, keep posting these stories, someone must know something, and the more exposure the story gets, the better


  • It must be sheer hell for his Grandma. Every time she walks outside she is being reminded where he was when she last saw him.
    The whole family is suffering as a result of some evil person who must know where he is.

    • she is going through what sadly, others have gone through… you wouldn’t wish this on an enemy though.


  • I can’t begin to imagine what this family is going through. I wish they could get some answers


  • I pray that they have some answers soon. It must be so hard not knowing what has happened to him.


  • They must all suffer so much. Poor family. I hope one day they will be able to get some closure. :-(


  • I can’t even imagine how you’d cope in this situation.


  • Such a tragic thing for this family to go through.


  • Such a tragic and horrible story. I hope they can find answers soon – the ongoing pain must be unbearable.


  • Another tragic story. I hope they find him and he is reunited with family.
