New search for William Tyrrell could take months as hessian bag sent for testing

At that rate, the painstaking effort could take up to nine weeks to complete.

Police have so far combed bushland and drained a creek in an area a kilometre from the Kendall property where the boy’s foster grandmother lived and where he was last seen seven years ago.

A hessian bag was found and collected for forensic testing on Saturday, with at least two other pieces of fabric placed in evidence bags and sent off earlier in the week.

Investigators have also scanned a concrete slab at the property, laid after the boy disappeared, but have since confirmed nothing of note was found.

Strike Force Rosann officers are testing theories William may have fallen from a balcony at the property, sifting through a garden below, and earlier this week seized a Mazda that previously belonged to the foster grandmother, who has since died.

It comes after police this week also charged the boy’s former foster parents over an unrelated alleged assault on a different child.

The pair is due to face court at Hornsby on Tuesday.

The findings of a coronial inquest into William’s disappearance, which concluded last year, are yet to be handed down.

A $1 million reward for information on the case still stands.
