The search for missing three-year-old William Tyrrell, who disappeared in 2014, might finally be coming to an end after an old hessian bag was found buried near his late foster grandmother's home.
The tot went missing while in the garden of relatives of his foster family in New South Wales, Australia.
He was last pictured on the property's balcony wearing a Spiderman outfit.
This week, a green nylon bag was found in one of three new locations which are being investigated, although experts said the dig to find his remains could take months.
The spot where it was found is near a tree trunk which was marked of interest by anthropologist Dr Penny McArdle.
It is the sixth piece of evidence police have found since work began on Monday.
A police spokesman has said that, if they remove surface dirt down to 15-30cms “over the entire one kilometre square dig site”, and analyse everything they find in the collected earth looking for traces of William that “he'll be in there”.
The spokesman added: “Between half a foot and a foot down and once they get down through the top soil into the orangey clay they know that's well into seven years down.

“They are scraping back seven years of dirt."
Earlier in the week, a piece of fabric was found in a creek-bed near the property, and a search in the same area, just two hours earlier, found another fabric sample.
The latest evidence was found on the right side of a stagnant end of the creek drained last night, reports the Daily Mail.
It was a light blue-coloured piece of fabric, around 8cm x 8cm.
William's biological grandma, who has not been named, told local news that the entire investigation had been “shambolic”.

She said: “The foster care people, they knew everything and we knew nothing.
“We were just having a little picnic – out jumps the foster care mother… and starts giving the kids lollipops and Kinder Surprises.
“So she was just like watching what's going on.

“My son used to always say he was too scared to love his kids… he was too scared to love them for an hour of supervised visits.
“He's not alive. I knew he wasn't alive for the last seven years. So, I'm just scared.”
The foster parents remain on the list of interested people, and a $1 million AUS (£538,000) reward for critical information is still in play.
