Police find a new interesting item buried in a muddy creek bed while they continue their search for William Tyrrell
- Investigators looking for William Tyrrell have found a piece of faded red cloth
- The toddler disappeared from his foster grandmother’s home in Kendall, NSW in 2014
- The three-year-old was last seen in a red, black, and blue Spiderman suit
- The new article will be forensically examined to determine if it is the same material
Police have unearthed a piece of faded red material buried in a muddy creek bed while they continue their search for William Tyrrell.
Investigators searching the bushland near the house in Kendall the three-year-old disappeared from in September 2014 began digging a new section of the pumped creek on Monday.
When they were rummaging through the mud, detectives discovered a piece of red cloth near a tree trunk shortly after 3:30 p.m., the Daily Telegraph reports.
The item has been placed in an evidence bag and is being forensically examined to determine if it is the same material as the red and blue Spider-Man costume the toddler was last seen in.
Day 22 of the re-search for the little boy’s remains on the central north coast of NSW this week began with a search for a new section of the creek east of Batar Creek Road on the outskirts.

A piece of faded red cloth has been excavated at the bottom of a muddy stream – which is being forensically examined to determine if it’s the same material as a Spiderman suit that William was photographed in the morning he went missing (pictured).
Rural fire department volunteers began clearing the waterway early Monday before investigators returned to search the dirt in hopes of finding clues as to what happened to the missing boy.
Meanwhile, riot police continued to comb the surrounding bushland while forensic investigators digitally mapped the area using laser technology.
The software will allow detectives to view the map on a laptop and mark key areas and their search progress through the rough terrain.
William and his family were visiting his foster grandmother’s estate on Benaroon Drive, Kendall, from Sydney when he mysteriously disappeared seven years ago.
Last month NSW police announced that hundreds of officers would search three locations in the area where he disappeared after gaining new information and looking for a body.
The detectives of the Strike Force Rosann found several interesting objects during the renewed search, including other pieces of material in a Hessian bag, but the officers have yet to disclose whether they are forensically relevant to the case.
However, Detective Chief Superintendent of NSW Police, Darren Bennett, told reporters on Nov. 26 that investigators were “very pleased” with the results so far.
The search is expected to take several weeks as the efforts have been temporarily hampered by bad weather.
