For the first time, William Tyrrell ‘s sister spoke publicly, telling the inquiry that it was not enough to locate her brother.
When three-year – old William disappeared from her foster grandmother’s Kendall home in 2014, the girl, who can not be named, was playing with her younger brother.
“This is my brother we’re talking about, in my mind no one is trying so I’ve made the decision to do something about that, to talk,” she said in a recorded statement to the court.
“When I’m officially an adult I will be in the police force, a detective specifically and I will find my brother and not give up until he is found.”
The declaration was made on the final day of the inquiry, which began in March 2019.
The foster parents of William also spoke about the little boy with a giggle that was contagious.
“He immediately had my heart and I had his,” his foster father said.
But they also spoke of their frustrations at the lack of change, a drop in police services, and some people’s cold approach.
“Our fear is for the family who come behind us. No other family should feel the need that they need to fight tooth and nail… No other family should ever be made to feel that their loved ones do not matter.”
“It’s a parents right to know what’s happening with your child.
We’re at the same stage today as we were six years ago.
“We’ll never give up on William, ever.”
