BREAKING NEWS: Twist in William Tyrrell search as police DIVERS swoop on a rainwater tank at his foster grandmother’s house
A team of police divers have returned to William Tyrrell’s foster grandmother’s home to inspect a rainwater tank.
A group of detectives discreetly left the main search zone – 700m from William’s late foster grandmother’s home in Kendall – about 1.30pm on Wednesday.
They then inspected the Benaroon Drive home’s water tank with a camera. The tank is located directly underneath the property’s five metre tall verandah.
Last week, police revealed they were investigating whether William fell from the balcony to his death.

While the majority of the taskforce is still combing through enormous swathes of bushland at the main search site on Batar Creek Road, a handful of officers were seen connecting a hose to the tank.
It’s not clear if the tank was drained in the initial search for William when he disappeared seven years ago on September 12, 2014.
