Police find new item of interest buried in muddy creek bed as they continue search for William Tyrrell
Police have found a piece of faded red material buried in a muddy creek bed as they continue the search for William Tyrrell.
Investigators searching bushland near the Kendall home the three-year-old vanished from in September 2014, began digging through a new section of pumped-out creek on Monday.
As they raked through the mud, detectives discovered a piece of red fabric near the base of a tree shortly after 3.30pm, the Daily Telegraph reports.
The item was placed into an evidence bag and will be forensically examined to determine whether it is the same material as the red and blue Spider-Man suit the toddler was photographed in before he disappeared.

The 22nd day of the renewed search for the little boy’s remains on the NSW Mid North Coast this week began honing in on a new section creek, east of the Batar Creek Road, on the outskirts of the town.
Rural Fire Service volunteers started emptying the waterway early on Monday before investigators returned to sift through the dirt, hoping to find clues for what happened to the missing boy.
Meanwhile, riot squad police continued to scour surrounding bushland while forensic investigators used laser technology to digitally map the area.
The software will allow detectives to view the map on a laptop and mark areas of importance and their search progress through the terrain.
