William Tyrrell’s foster parents rare interview reveals their “biggest regret”

So sad

July 01 2019

William Tyrrell's foster parents have given a rare interview about the missing boy, five years on from his disappearance.

The little boy was just three years old when he disappeared while playing at his grandmother’s property in 2014.

His foster parents have spoken out in a rare interview via a podcast investigation with 10 News First.

The couple are still the caregivers for William’s biological sister, and say that every day still holds challenges for them.

One of the hardest things they have had to deal with is watching William’s sister grow up without her brother.

“We have to watch his sister learn to play and learn to be an only child,” his foster mother said.

The couple remain hopeful he may be still alive and say they will never stop looking for him.

“Till my last breath, we will not give up on William,” William's foster dad said.

“We need to know where he is and we know what happened to him, because we can't go on living like this,” his foster mother said.

A coronial inquest into the disappearance and suspected death of William was held in March.

Police investigators ruled William's foster and biological parents had no involvement in his disappearance.

In August, the second round of hearings will be held as part of the inquest.
