Here is what William Tyrrell would look like today

Here is what William Tyrrell would look like today

A team of experts has released a projection of what William Tyrrell would look like today, five years since the boy disappeared.

Newcastle University criminologist Xanthé Mallett and her team generated an age progression image using the latest technology in her forensic services company.

Tyrrell was last seen at his foster grandmother’s yard in Kendall on the New South Wales mid-north coast on September 12, 2014.

He would be eight years old today.

“He will have changed quite a lot in the intervening five years so it helps people imagine what he would potentially look like now,” Mallett told 10 News.

“Most interestingly for a child, the dentition would’ve change. Their adult teeth would’ve come through and that would have changed the lower part of William’s face.”

Despite being one of the largest investigations in the state’s history, Tyrrell has not been found.

part-heard inquest into the disappearance will continue next year.
