William Tyrrell’s search continues | County Chief of St George and Sutherland
The renewed search for the remains of three-year-old William Tyrrell continues as police focus on a bush area near where the child went missing on the NSW north coast.
Investigators dug and raked the dirt and drained a shallow stream in a bush area one kilometer from Kendall’s property where William was last seen seven years ago.
A piece of cloth was recovered from the creek bed and placed in an evidence bag on Friday, the fifth day of the new research.
Australian Federal Police officers on Thursday used ground-penetrating radar to scan a concrete slab on the property that belonged to the boy’s adopted grandmother.
The slab was laid after his disappearance.
But on Friday morning, police confirmed that the slab results did not advance the investigation.
It comes after Strike Force Rosann officers investigate theories that William may have fallen from a balcony on the property.
Earlier this week, police also seized a Mazda that was previously owned by the adoptive grandmother, who has since died.
Police also charged the boy’s former adoptive parents with an alleged assault unrelated to another child.
Both men are scheduled to appear in Hornsby court on Tuesday.
The findings of a coronary artery inquest into William’s disappearance, which ended last year, have yet to be released.
A million dollar reward for information about the case still stands.
