Days after being hit with stalking and intimidation charges, William Tyrrell’s foster parents are holding a massive fire sale of goods including children’s bikes, car seats, cars, tools and a water tank.
The online auction, hosted on a classifieds website under the foster father’s name, features furniture, car parts, machinery, jewellery, watches, a phone and electronic and office equipment.
The items being sold by the man range from bargain buys for as little as $5 and heavy equipment and vehicles for sale for thousands of dollars.
The foster father appears to have successfully sold several items including machinery over the last week, and the more than a dozen items currently on sale could net him a total of more than $50,000.
Since the beginning of the year, the 55-year-old also appears to have hawked off children’s toys, large industrial items, a baby’s cot and household equipment.

Missing William’s (above) foster parents are selling many of the items from the North Shore home they bought after leaving the house meant to be the boy’s ‘forever home’ until he turned 18
Some of the items are available for purchase from a location in northwestern Sydney while others can be collected from the suburb where the couple lives.
The foster parents bought the house early last year after successfully selling their previous home two suburbs away for more than $4 million.
The foster parents had lived in that house for 15 years, including the two years and eight months William Tyrrell resided there up until his disappearance as a three-year-old in September 2014.
The couple, described by their friend radio broadcaster Chris Smith as ‘level-headed and decent professional people from a comfortable part of Sydney’ first fostered William in March 2012.
After he vanished from his foster grandmother’s house in the NSW Mid North Coast town of Kendall, the couple foster parents wrote that they were heartbroken the little boy would never get to enjoy their ‘forever family home’.
In a letter shared with the public, the foster parents said they still held out hope that William would one day return to his new bedroom, described as a ‘special magical place’.

The foster parents were also selling audio and computer equipment and officer furniture among the many items they are advertising and have been selling over the last year
Last November, the foster mother was named by NSW Police as a ‘person of interest’ in William’s disappearance, and her later mother, who owned the Kendall house from which William vanished, was also named.
On the same day police began another ‘high intensity’ search of bushland around 800m from the foster grandmother’s house, thy foster mother and foster father were both charged with assault.
The charges relate to the alleged assault of a child who is not William Tyrrell.
Both foster parents have pleaded not guilty, and have indicated they may apply to have the matter heard under the Mental Health Act.
Both foster parents were charged with stalk and intimidate last Friday, four months after being hit with charges of assault of a child who is not William
Last Friday, both parents were charged with stalking and intimidation, with the foster mother facing two charges and the foster dad a single count.
The charges of stalk, intimidate intend fear of physical or mental harm are domestic related, according to court documents.
As the investigation into the toddler’s 2014 disappearance continues, the couple whose identities are suppressed for legal reasons are due to face Hornsby Local Court on the allegations later this month.
The stalking charges were laid just after it was revealed William’s foster father had been charged in January with two counts of ‘knowingly provide false and misleading evidence’.

The charges were only revealed in late March following a revision of non-publication orders surrounding the case.
The foster father, who police claim ‘lied about something we can prove’, gave the allegedly false evidence to the secretive NSW Crime Commission late last year.
The details of what exactly is the evidence provided to the NSW Crime Commission by the foster father which police claim is false and misleading are unavailable.
The foster father has entered pleas of not guilty to both charges.
