SEPTEMBER 17, 2014
AUTHORITIES have confirmed there is no longer any hope of finding missing toddler William Tyrell alive if in fact he did wander off into bush near his grandparents’ house on the NSW mid north coast.
Six days into the search for the three-year-old, Superintendent Paul Fehon made the grim announcement this morning that “experts … cannot substantiate at this point in time that survival could exist”.
The complete absence of evidence – tracks, scent trails, pieces of clothing, blood or hair – to suggest William wandered alone into bush has heightened fears he may have been abducted.
But Supt Fehon said the ground search of bush and the village of Kendall would continue today unabated.
A decision to scale back the operation had not yet been made, he said.
Supt Fehon would not elaborate on reports of an outsider stopping to ask for directions to the street where William’s grandparents live, shortly before he went missing.
But he said there were still no concrete leads for investigators in Strike Force Rosann to follow.
“They want to assist the family in being able to locate young William and at least bring them back something that they are desperately seeking,” he said.
Officers from the Sex Crimes Squad of the NSW Police State Crime Command joined the investigation yesterday.
Detectives from the specialist squad were deployed from Sydney to head up a strike force of more than 30 officers, including local detectives and investigators from further afield.
Their deployment points to growing concerns that William has met with foul play, rather than simply wandered off into the bush and become lost.
With investigations ramping up into the possibility William was abducted, police today are also door-knocking homes throughout Kendall where he went missing.
Officers have also been going through rubbish bins along the town’s streets in the hope of finding clues to his disappearance.
Residents have been asked to disclose how many people live in each house and where those people were on Friday morning when William went missing.
“He loved being outside but he knew the limits, he knew the perimeters, he knew where to go and where not to go,” she said.
Nicole said that as each day passed, “it just gets harder and harder” for the family.
“There are extra photos out there now of William and they just want people everywhere to see his face, to know what he looks like and to tell the police anything they might know or even the slightest bit of information they have,” she said.
“They are just really grateful for the police, the SES, the volunteers and the community continuing to maintain the search and maintain the hope.”
Police dogs have failed to pick up any scent trails to suggest William wandered off into the dense, hilly bushland opposite his grandparents’ house.
Despite the so-far fruitless search, Supt Fehon insisted police were “not even considering” scaling back their efforts, particularly given the family’s anguish. “It’s fair to say their grief is consuming them at times.’’
