Washing machine repairman William Spedding posted the video online following renewed public interest in the case with Saturday being 12 months since William, 3, vanished from his grandmother’s backyard in Kendall.

“My wife Margaret and I offer the Tyrrell family our sincere commiserations in the tragic eventof William’s disappearance,” Mr Spedding says in the video.

“I wish to state that I have had no involvement whatsoever in the disappearance of William Tyrrell.”

Mr Spedding’sBonny Hills home was searched in January as was his pawnbroker business and adjoining office in the main street of Laurieton.

A mattress and computer were carried away by detectives, in full view of curious locals, for examination.

A property in his former hometown of Wellington, in NSW’s Central West, was also searched.

However, he has strenuously denied any involvement in William’s disappearance. Police have said the searches of Mr Spedding’s propertieswerejust one of a number of lines of inquiry into William’s disappearance.

Mr Spedding said he recorded the video to correct “inaccurate” reports that he was supposed to have beenat William’s grandmother’s house on the day the toddler went missing.

He said he first attended the house on Tuesday, September 9, and then returned on September 18 but had not been in the house, or even the same street on September 12, the day William disappeared.

“I have not been in the Tyrrell house or to the Tyrrell house, or to the street, before, between or after these dates,” he said.

“The media have reported that I was supposed to attendthe Tyrrell house on the 12th of September 2014, this being the day of William’s disappearance.

“I wish to make it perfectly clear that this claim is completely false.

“I did not make any indication, of any nature, which would lead to any person to believe that I was attend [sic] the Tyrrell house on the 12th of September 2014.”
