    Three-year-old William Tyrell went missing from his grandmother's backyard at Kendall on the NSW mid-north coast on 12th September 2014.

    Search involving police, SES and volunteers from 13th to 21st September 2014 when the search was scaled down.

    January 6 2015 - Police deny it was a targeted abduction

    January 20, 2015
    Forensic teams searched the home of tradesman William Harrie Spedding, who was understood to have given a quote at William's grandmother's house four days before he disappeared.

    Police seized a number of items and the property's septic tank was drained. Police also executed a search warrant for a Laurieton pawn shop believed to be operated by Mr Spedding.


    2nd March 2015
    The Homicide Squad began a new search for the body of William in dense bushland at Bonny Hills off the Pacific Highway after a tip-off from a member of the public.

    Police searched for his body and further evidence about 20 kilometres from where William was last seen, in an area around Houston Mitchell Drive and Long Point Road.


    Search continues.

    Lets just hope this doesn't end up like the Beaumont children case and never being solved.

    Bones reportedly found yesterday but yet to be established whether they are human or animal.

    Spedding is reported to have driven by the search site yesterday prior to police searching.

    Terrible to think about how some perpetrator could commit such a hideous crime- it's unlikely the boy wandered off and got lost.

    A very sad case indeed. It fills me with sadness & utter rage that sub humans do this to innocent children.

    Tyrrell is quite a common name in NSW & when I hear of it I think of wine. Tyrell is not a common name in NSW & you will be hard pressed to find many with that surname.
    Very little information has been released to the public regarding the parents.
    Spedding. What's in a name?

    And why would he put this on facebook?

    Bones found in search have been reported as animal bones.

    As a parent it's pretty fkd to think that our kids are not even safe in our own yards anymore.
    Personally I think that anyone who commits terrible heinous acts (abduction, torture, rape, murder) against children, forfeit their right to life & as such should be exterminated until their ilk is eradicated from existence.

    I hope they find the young lad & how & why he disappeared?

    Vandals removed the 'S', it should say Speddos as in Spedding.

    Sorry if that was stating the obvious, but if hes innocent thats a shitty thing to have done.

    The parents who cant be identified (police say nothing suspicious) made a plea today for their son.

    Police also in a media release have said they are now looking at a link to a pedophile ring in port macquarie area. Not sure what to make of this new development ?

    Read about this last night. Cute little kid. As a father of two young ones I find these things tough to read. My oldest is a little younger than William and I just cannot even imagine what the parents must be going through. I don't want to imagine. I hope it's at worst one of those cases where somebody wants a child of their own and that he is being cared for.

    Good thing the OP pointed out he's small as I generally picture 3-year-olds to be the size of basketball players.

    I do hope this doesnt turn out like the Morcombe case, but the reality is that this child is already suffering. I hope that he is alive, healthy and cared for..

    Shithouse that there has been a media witch hunt on a bloke who they have very little on. What ever happened to presumption of innocence?

    Hope for a miracle that little william is found alive but reckon there is a zero percent chance

    Where does the OP make any mention of William being three years old?

    Should he have named the thread "Disappearance of three-year-old William Tyrell" instead? Would you then come in here and say, "Good thing the OP pointed out he's three, as I generally picture little people to be grand parents"?

    "Disappearance of William Tyrell" would be better. This is a crime board not Woman's Day.

    This might sound bad but you have to feel sorry for Spedding for being charged with such old events, I know it's not uncommon these days but if Tyrell hadn't disappeared I highly doubt he would've been charged. And this is assuming he's not responsible for taking Tyrell.

    I agree to an extent, caveat being he turns out.to be innocent of all charges.

    If he actually committed the offences inmthe 80s (which I doubt) than he deserves to be charged.

    Has been an absolute media witch hunt on him since day 1 and there just doesn't seem to be any evidence to suggest it was him.

    Interesting he was arrested by the Homicide Squad and not some sex crimes squad and then bail for a offences committed in the 1980's was refused. The police are trying to play it down but their actions suggest this is the man, just haven't got enough evidence for the 'beyond reasonable doubt'.

    Of course they have something on him. These are very serious allegations, and I gaurantee the informants have liaised with the DPP Extensively before proceeding with formal charges........

    I was being sarcastic...my response was directed at the following quote from earlier in the thread, regarding the initial interview.

    "Has been an absolute media witch hunt on him since day 1 and there just doesn't seem to be any evidence to suggest it was him."

    2014 or 2008. Probably 2008.
    Very sad state of affairs.
