Recently uncovered footage has revealed the concerns expressed by William Tyrrell’s biological mother regarding the care and well-being of her son before his disappearance.

The never-seen-before footage is from a television interview she did with Seven in 2018 which has now seen the light of day as part of a Seven Spotlight special that aired on Sunday, July 9.

William Tyrrell, who went missing from his foster grandmother’s home in Kendall, New South Wales, in September 2014, has remained at the center of one of Australia’s most extensive missing person investigations. The case has captured the nation’s attention for nearly a decade, leaving many questions unanswered.

In the gripping footage, William’s biological mother discusses the concerns she raised regarding her son during his time in foster care.

“From the start, I always had concerns and I wrote letters back and forth to one of the carers,” she said.

“Because I didn’t really like the care that I thought he was being given.”

The recently disclosed comments come as NSW Police reportedly pursue charges against William’s foster mother in regard to his disappearance.

News of the charges is the first major development in the long-running investigation after detectives from Strike Force Rosann reportedly provided the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) with a brief of evidence recommending William’s foster mother be charged with offences relating to his disappearance, as reported by The Australian.

The DPP will now decide whether the evidence is strong enough before any decisions are made about pursuing charges.

There is no suggestion of the foster mother’s guilt or that she will be charged, nor is there any suggestion that she was responsible for the toddler’s death.

William’s foster mother has always denied any wrongdoing regarding the disappearance of the toddler.

News of the potential charges come as the first significant breakthrough in the case since November 2021 when authorities announced renewed search efforts to find William, involving hundreds of police officers, in three specific locations in the Kendall area.

A $1 million reward for information that leads to the recovery of William, and the circumstances regarding his disappearance, still stands
