It’s been confirmed by the New South Wales police that a white station wagon has been seized from the home of a person of interest in the William Tyrrell investigation.
The white Toyota station wagon, is believed to belong to 59 year old Anthony ‘Tony’ Jones. It is understood that the car was taken from the home of the convicted pedophile on September 16th.
Jones, 59, was sentenced to three years jail yesterday after pleading guilty to the indecent assault of a child. The child involved was not William.
Jones was a member of a grandparents social group that was under investigation by detectives in the Tyrell case. Jones was also a former neighbour of Bill Spedding, another person of interest in the case.
Tyrrell was last seen at his grandparents home on the New South Wales’ mid north coast over a year ago. The young boy turned four in June.
William’s parents addressed the country in an interview with 60 Minutes’ reporter Michael Usher, earlier this month pleading with the public to share any information they may have with authorities.
“If you’re protecting someone that you think is involved in this, you’re as bad as the person involved in it,” William’s mother said.
During the interview, William’s mother – who can not be identified – shared their concerns over vehicles that were parked on the Kendall street on the day of his disappearance.
The cars raised the suspicion of William’s family and detectives in the case as the street was a dead end street.
“There’s no logical explanation as to why they would park in the location they were,” Detective Inspector Gary Jubelin told the program. “And they were very close to each other. Given that it’s a dead-end street, that raises our curiosity.”
The police are encouraging anyone who may have information relating to the disappearance of William Tyrell to come forward. Anyone who believes they may have any information on William’s disappearance should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
