William Tyrrell disappeared from the front yard of his family home on the morning of September 12th 2014 in Kendall. The three year old was dressed in his favourite Spiderman costume and hasn’t been seen since.
Two years on and the police are no closer to solving one of Australia’s most tragic mysteries. Yesterday the police announced a $1 million reward in a bid to shed some light on what happened to the little boy. “That’s one million reasons why somebody that’s out there that knows what’s happened should come forward and talk to us,” Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione said .
“It is a unique announcement here in New South Wales. We’ve never had a $1 million reward ever before,” Mr Scipione said. “This is a little boy who has been tragically missing from his family for two years – someone out there knows what happened to William and it’s time they came forward so he can be returned to his mum, dad and sister. This reward is being announced for one purpose only, the recovery of William. If you know something, don’t wait for the police to find you, come forward now.”
Police initially believed the toddler could have been the target of a pedophile which was operating in the north coast region.
Washing machine repairman William “Bill” Spedding (above) who has had unrelated child sex charges brought upon him, has been the most high-profile person to be questioned during the continuing investigation.
