Approximately 80 Cobar residents and visitors joined in the national campaign Walk4Willaim on Saturday dressed in red and blue, and walked 2km around the local central business district to raise awareness for missing boy William Tyrrell.
On the 12 month anniversary of William’s disappearance the national awareness campaign kicked off and was followed by ‘Where’s William? Week’.
Local woman Sharni Clark organised Saturday’s Walk4William event with Cobar becoming part of the national initiative.
Mrs Clark said those who walked on Saturday did so much more than just walking.
She said the walk called for action on a national level to demand better support and resources for the missing children of this country.
In walking for William, participants were also encouraged to walk for their own children and each other’s children, for a safer community and a safer world.
The NSW Police believe William could still be alive and he could be anywhere.
His family is asking all Australians to download a photograph of William from whereswilliam.org or his Facebook page, and save it on their phone with the Crime Stoppers number (1800 333 000) and if you see a child you think may be William, to contact police immediately.
