William Tyrrell was a three year old boy who disappeared from the village of Kendall, on the mid-north-coast of New South Wales.
Key facts were kept from the public, from day one. A lot of what was reported, especially early on, was false.
In the new podcast, Nowhere Child, The Australian’s Caroline Overington delves into a case where notions of class and privilege; opportunity and poverty came crashing together, to create a nightmare for William Tyrrell.

Australia is one of the worst democracies when it comes to press freedom. We look at the suppression, the secrets and the lies told in William's case.
The NSW government approved a record $1 million reward for the return of William. We take you inside the public relations campaign designed to keep pressure on police and the government.
What does it mean to be a "person of interest" in a major police investigation? In episode four of Nowhere Child, we follow police down the first lines of inquiry, as the search turns from the hunt for William to those who may have taken him.
