The search for missing three-year-old William Tyrell has taken an international turn, with authorities in dozens of far-reaching countries expected to join the cause.
NSW Crime Stoppers have urged Crime Stoppers websites in 26 countries to post a message about William's abduction last year, urging anybody with information on the case to contact Australian police.
The plea has been sent to places as far-flung as Europe and America, urging them to post articles about three-year-old William, who went missing from his home in grandmother's home on the NSW north coast on September 12, reports the Sunday Telegraph.
NSW Crime Stoppers CEO Peter Price said they're expecting a plethora of further countries to jump on board.
'We're using the global crime stoppers network to broaden the communications appeal relating to his disappearance,' Mr Price said. 'We're hoping that somebody might recognise him.'
While the global call to action may be helpful, NSW Homicide Squad detective Gary Jubelin said there is no evidence to suggest William had been taken overseas.
The global campaign comes after the parents of missing three-year-old William issued a heartfelt plea to find their son after he vanished without a trace five months ago.
The Tyrell family issued a heartbreaking letter revealing William's toys remained untouched and that everyday since he disappeared had been a living nightmare.
'We wake up every day hoping this nightmare will be over. We desperately miss William, he's our baby boy; our funny, cheeky, gorgeous boy,' they said.Read more...
