Search for missing toddler William Tyrell to be scaled back

THE ground and water search for missing toddler William Tyrell on the NSW mid-north coast will be scaled down this week.

The three-year-old has been missing for more than a month.

He was last seen wearing a Spiderman suit playing with his sister in the front yard of his grandparents' home on Benaroon Drive in Kendall, south of Port Macquarie, on September 12 when he vanished.

His sudden disappearance sparked a massive search of the surrounding bush involving more than 300 local volunteers, SES officers, rural fire service personnel and police.

Acting Superintendent Commander Tony Joice told News Limited publications at the weekend police jet skis and sniffer dogs had scoured the nearby Camden Haven River last week but found nothing.

"Nothing has been found and that area has been eliminated at this point," he said.

"There is pretty much nothing else we can do.

"We will have eliminated a number of areas where William is not, so it does take us closer to finding him."
