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.

Music used in this podcast:

Daniel Birch - Blue Lobster, Trees in the Wind, Marimba on the Loose
Electric-tric - Sketch 9

Swelling - Night I

Please choose a different photo

The photo that is used of this child is almost frightening - maybe go with one of him smiling?

Kind of slow and boring. The investigator is so focused on secrecy and they really should be understanding that the state wants privacy for these kids, the carers and their biological families. What does it matter that the child is in foster care? It doesn’t.

Boring... try another missing persons podcast!

What started as a promising missing persons true crime podcast turned out to be a redundant story splayed out between too many episodes. If you want to hear the same information explained 12 different times, this podcast is for you! If not, find another podcast. Quite disappointed!

Enjoyable well paced story of a complex case

This is a complex case. Yes, its drawn out, because in real life, these things are. You’ll be introduced to William, his parents, the circumstances of his disappearance, the Australian legal system, the system William was part of, and how it all fits together.

This is a great podcast, and as a kiwi, I’ve learn’t a lot from this podcast I never read in the news here in NZ.

I find the host an enjoyable listen, who makes a complex case understandable and structured.
