After four years of searching for answers, police have referred the disappearance of William Tyrrell to the coroner.
Today marks the fourth anniversary since the boy — then aged three — went missing from the NSW Mid North Coast town of Kendall.
NSW Police propose the inquest will be held in 2019 before Deputy State Coroner Harriet Grahame, who observed a large-scale search police undertook this July.
She has requested a brief of evidence which will be provided by the year’s end.
Police said the inquest would be an “opportunity to test information and evidence” gathered by Strike Force Rosann and further the investigation.
“This is another step in ensuring answers are provided to William’s loved ones,” police said.
More to come.
