Police are digging up the garden where missing boy William Tyrell was last seen 7 years ago, as they investigate whether he fell from a balcony at the property.

William, who has been dubbed Australia’s Madeleine McCann, was just three years old when he disappeared from the home in 2014.

That was seven years ago, and despite sparking one of Australia’s biggest manhunts there has been not a trace of the little boy since.

But police on the northern coast of New South Wales yesterday said they were looking for William’s body in a new search.

According to 9 News reports, hundreds of officers and dozens of Rural Fire Service volunteers are conducting a fresh search of the area surrounding the boy’s foster grandmother’s house, in Kendall.

Investigators are digging up the garden below a second-floor balcony and sifting through dirt, using a chemical that detects traces of blood, while they look for clues as to what happened to William.

This morning, NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller told 2GB that he was “confident” the team who had the investigation at the moment could solve it.

When asked whether detectives were focusing on anyone of interest, Mr Fuller added: “My understanding is, from the investigators, is that there is certainly one person in particular that we are looking closely at.”

This morning, NSW Police Minister David Elliot also said he had confidence in the investigators.

“Police wouldn’t be deploying these resources, wouldn’t be putting this energy into a search of this magnitude, unless they were confident they would be able to get at least some extra information relating to the disappearance of William,” he said.

According to 9 News reports, Police and Rural Fire Service volunteers were expected to be deployed in the search for two to three weeks.

“We’ve got an excellent Rural Fire Service here in NSW,” Mr Elliott said.

“They are experts in managing the ground, in identifying any soil that may have been moved, in any ground that’s been disturbed, and that’s what they are looking out for.”

Reports from news teams at the scene described the search as being “very focused” with searches focusing on bushland on the road on Batar Creek Road Kendall, on the corner of Cobb and Co Road.

“This is an area that has now become the centre of attention. There are three locations here that are of significant interest to the police.”

Among the investigators were specialists including an archaeologist and a specialist in human remains.

Detective Chief Superintendent Darren Bennett, from NSW Police, yesterday would not answer questions as to whether police had received a tip-off, or a human source was involved in the decision to launch the new operation.

However, he made clear that the search would focus on new areas and go underground, as well as involving “special assistance” and new technologies.

“It’s highly likely that if we found something, it would be a body,” he said. “We are looking for the remains of William Tyrrell, no doubt about that.”

The search was being guided by “the holistic nature of a number of pieces of evidence”, Chief Superintendent Bennett added, which police thought provided them with the best chance of finding him.

William was dressed in a spiderman costume when he vanished in broad daylight on September 11, 2014, while out playing hide-and-seek in the safety of his foster grandmother’s garden.

William’s foster parents had taken him and his five-year-old sister for the three hour drive to visit his foster grandmother at her house on the edge of a forest in Kendall, on New South Wales’ north coast.

The next day his father left to find a better signal for his business call, and his mother and grandmother say in the sun drinking tea while watching William, wearing his favourite spiderman costume, and his sister play hide and seek in the garden around the house.

At around 10.30am the women went inside to make more tea, and when they returned five minutes later he was gone.

The last thing his mother remembers is hearing her son imitating a tiger’s roar while running down the side of the house to hide.

Police have put pressure on several suspects in the years since William’s disappearance, but each person has been eventually ruled out.

It has today been revealed that William’s sister has been removed from their foster parents’ care.
