COPS searching for missing three-year-old William Tyrrell has dug up three new pieces of evidence as the search for “Australia’s Madeleine McCann” continues.
Police have now dug up a piece of black cloth near the same area where two pieces of red wire were found a few days earlier, and near a mysterious green nylon bag was found on Saturday.
The new evidence was photographed, packaged and sent for testing.
Despite the bad weather conditions, police searched the area for new clues after it was revealed that they had a new suspect in lingering mystery.
NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said the search for the boy’s remains could take “several weeks” but he vowed it would continue “until investigators believe the work is complete”. ABC reported.
He added that 30 specialist officers remained at the scene while they found the objects “unusual to normal dusty areas.”
“We have recovered 15 tonnes of soil and other pieces of evidence or potential evidence for forensic investigation,” he said.
“[It’s] Weather conditions are particularly difficult at the moment but that will continue until investigators believe the job is done.
“If you think about 15 tons of soil being moved into a secret lab, it could take weeks of searching in there before we have any answers.”
Strong winds and heavy rain on Saturday interrupted the search but was later resumed.
Based on 9news, a car belonging to William’s deceased adoptive grandmother was also sent for testing.
William was only three years old when he disappeared while playing with his sister on September 12, 2014.
He was cared for by his adoptive parents, who brought him to visit the seaside town of Kendall, New South Wales, on the day he went missing.
His parents went inside to make a cup of tea while William and his sister played hide and seek outside.
When they returned five minutes later, the toddler was gone.
William’s grandmother – who has not been named – told local news the investigation was “bad”.
“The foster carers, they know everything and we know nothing,” she said.
“We just had a little picnic – the foster mom jumped out… and started feeding the kids lollipops and Kinder Surprise.
“So she just likes to observe what’s going on.
“My son often says he’s too scared to love his kids… he’s too scared to love them during an hour of supervised visit.
“He’s not alive. I know he hasn’t been alive for the past seven years. So I’m just scared.”
Police say William’s adoptive parents are of interest and are offering a £538,000 reward for new information.
