William Tyrrell appeal page shut down by Facebook

A Facebook page set up to share information and updates about the investigation and search for missing toddler, William Tyrrell, has been swept up in bans on Australian media outlets by the tech giant today.

The ‘Where’s William Tyrell? Bring Him Home’ page, which has more than 100,000 followers, has been shut down by Facebook, leaving page moderators devastated.

“It is unconscionable that Facebook have failed to appropriately plan or execute their stance, removing essential community pages such as little William’s as well as pages for emergency and government services designed to help and protect the community,” one of the page’s administrators said today.

“With information through William’s Facebook page passed on to police, the removal of his page threatens to hinder the search for precious William.”

Three-year-old Williams disappeared while playing outside his grandmother’s home in Kendall in September 2014.
