The Homicide Squad’s Strike Force Rosann has marked the anniversary of the disappearance of William Tyrrell by revisiting the last place he was seen seven years ago.

Shortly before 10.30am on Friday 12 September 2014, William, then aged three, was playing in the yard of his grandmother’s home on Benaroon Drive, Kendall, when he disappeared.

Hundreds of residents and emergency service workers and volunteers searched homes, forests, creeks and paddocks throughout the rural township, but William could not be located.

Detectives and analysts from the State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad have been investigating the circumstances surrounding William’s disappearance from the outset under Strike Force Rosann.

They have been working under the premise that his disappearance was as a result of human intervention.

Since that time, Strike Force Rosann has conducted extensive investigations and actively engaged with Her Honour during the Coronial process, which remains ongoing.

Detectives are continuing to conduct interviews, searches and other investigative activity, including those under Coronial Orders, as well as reviewing all available materials with the assistance of various experts.

Strike Force Rosann Officer-in-Charge, Detective Chief Inspector David Laidlaw, said detectives returned to Kendall as part of their review into the circumstances surrounding William’s disappearance.

“The Strike Force Rosann team returned to Kendall with local detectives and specialist forensic officers to have another look at the residence where William was last seen, as well as other areas nearby,” Det Ch Insp Laidlaw said.

“Further information has since come to light, as part of our ongoing review of the materials gathered by investigators since the moment William went missing seven years ago.

“As our team continue to conduct inquiries and explore all avenues of investigation, our focus has been identifying if anything has been missed, or if there are any details – no matter how small – that need to be clarified.

“Police remain committed to finding out what happened to William, but our most important job here is to bring him home for both families.”

The $1 million NSW Government reward for information that leads to the recovery of William Tyrrell, and the circumstances surrounding his disappearance, remains in place.
