Which is why he suddenly stopped hollering.
Roaring (playing), grabbed, silence. That is possible. One of many possible theories.

Is big tank under balcony for water? oil?

Looks like a rainwater tank, judging by the pipework.

EVERY one of the 21 ­houses in the exclusive estate around his grandmother’s house have been searched from top to bottom twice, including roof cavities and septic tanks.


Interestingly, from same article:-

"“William is only three years and three months old and really still a baby; he has so many more years to live and we desperately want him home,” his family said in a statement eight days after he went missing.

“William up until a month ago was obsessed with all things fire engine and would tell us his name was ‘Firefighter William’, a future he deserves to fulfil.

“We pray and hope that our ‘Firefighter William’ comes home soon.”

The Australian
12:00AM September 3, 2016

Police who are investigating the dis­appear­ance of three-year-old William Tyrrell from the NSW mid-north coast have identified hundreds of “persons of interest” to their ­inquiry and have called in other squads of detectives to help rule out many of these names.

As only a few of these people were previously identified by the press, the real scale of the investig­ation has not been ­revealed ­before.

With the second anniversary of William’s dis­appearance falling later this month, The Weekend Australian can also reveal that NSW Premier Mike Baird has personally promised the boy’s parents and police involved to provide any resource the ­investigation needs.

The inquiry has deeply affect­ed those living in and around the small town of Kendall, where William was last seen, particularly after police announced that they were investigating “a pedophile ring that may be operating” in the area.

“It’s close to home now. It makes you wonder whether someone’s covering for someone,” said Alison Copelin, a mother of three.

“You start to second-guess ­people that you probably wouldn’t have second-guessed before,” said another local woman, Linda Hoffman.
“They call it a ring. I don’t know if that is true, but it is hard because it just pricks your ears up … to what’s happening around you. And not just your own kids.”

A police strikeforce, codenamed Rosann and consisting of 14 detectives and analysts, is working full-time on the search for ­William from a base in Port Macquarie, 35km from Kendall.

Given the scale of the operation, which has focused on people with links to the former timber town or William, it is possible detectives have already interviewed the person or persons involved.

Such is the workload that other detectives from several specialist squads within the NSW Police Force’s State Crime Command have been asked to invest­ig­ate many persons of interest identified as low-priority targets by the strikeforce. The rest are being pursued by Rosann investigators.

NSW police won’t comment on the investigation ahead of the anniversary of William’s dis­appearance on September 12, when they are expected to join his parents in another public appeal for information about what took place.

William was last seen wearing his favourite Spider-Man suit and playing with his four-year-old ­sister in the garden of their grandmother’s home outside Kendall.
His father, a consultant, left the house earlier to make a business call and William’s mother and grandmother sat outside the house while the children played. None of the adults can be named.

At about 10.30am, William’s mother went inside to make a cup of tea before realising she could no longer hear her son. A search of the surrounding bush using police, SES and local volunteers was mounted over several days without finding any trace of William.

Police were initially uncertain how he could have been taken from the dead-end road, particularly as the family had ­arrived only a day earlier, meaning few people, if any, knew they were in the area.

Despite this, detectives believe William was probably abducted, although they see this as more likely being an impulsive decision by those involved rather than a planned attack. In April last year, Homicide Squad commander Mick Willing said “recent inform­ation we have received … relates to a pedophile ring that may be operating” in the area around Kendall.
“We are vigorously pursuing that line of inquiry … this investig­ation is moving forward at a very fast pace,” he said.

Two months later, a nat­ional Where’s William? campaign was launched, hoping to provoke ­people to come forward with ­information about the case.

Mr Baird approached William’s family and police involved in the search during a campaign event in NSW’s Parliament House, promising his government would provide any resource required to mount an effective search.

Over the past two years, a handful of persons of interest has been named in the press, though each has said he had nothing to do with what took place. These ­include convicted sex offenders from the area, some with links to each other.

The first person of interest publicly named was Bill Spedding, a local whitegoods repairman whose home and business were searched after William’s ­dis­appearance.  In September, he posted an online video declaring his innocence of any involvement in what took place.

He has previously said he is innocent of all the alleged crimes.

His close friend, Colin Youngberry, said: “It’ll come out that Bill’s totally innocent of the lot.

“You follow that angle, mate, and you’ll be spot on. I guarantee you that one.”


Highlighted - this mirrors what has been going on with SY/PJ investigation into the disappearance of MM, except that the latter's enquiries are international.

The Australian police seem to believe that William was kidnapped & there is a distinct possibility he is still alive. I hope they have more success with the reward strategy than happened in the Madeleine case.

I found these additional pictures of no. 48, don't know if you've seen them.

No.11 is interesting - is that the neighbouring property in the background?
No. 7 - shows how open plan the house is. I wonder how many photos FGM had displayed in the living area?

Alleged paedophile Bill Spedding to face Victorian court next year

An alleged paedophile previously identified as a person of interest in the disappearance of NSW toddler William Tyrrell will face court in Victoria next year.

William "Bill" Spedding is facing a string of historic child sexual abuse charges. The offences are alleged to have occurred in Clarendon near Ballarat and other locations across regional Victoria.
Spedding was due in the Ballarat Magistrates Court on Thursday for a committal mention, but a solicitor appearing on his behalf requested the matter be heard in his absence.

The lawyer told the court that Spedding lives 400 kilometres north of Sydney and current bail conditions on unrelated NSW matters restricted him from leaving the state.

She requested the committal mention be adjourned until after March 16 next year to allow Spedding's NSW matters to be dealt with.

Magistrate Mark Stratmann adjourned the committal mention until March 30 next year, but told the lawyer this was the last time Spedding would be excused from attending court.

Court documents show Victorian police have charged Spedding with multiple child sexual abuse offences, including various counts of indecent assault and sexual intercourse with children between 1983 and 1985.

Spedding is already facing a string of separate child sexual offences and is due to appear in a NSW court next year.
