Missing for seven years, the little boy in the Spider-Man suit has been kept alive in people’s hearts

Every morning for seven years, the small New South Wales community of Kendall has woken up with fresh hope that this will be the day the precious little boy in the Spider-Man suit will finally be found safe and sound.

Shortly before 10.30am on September 12, 2014, 10km from the village, a three-year-old boy with wide hazel eyes named William Tyrrell was happily playing in his foster grandmother’s garden, when suddenly he went missing.

Over the next five hours, local volunteers joined forces with emergency services to comb through scrubland, creeks and paddocks, desperate for a clue to where the little boy might be hiding.
