A white station wagon has been seized for forensic examination by authorities investigating the case of missing toddler William Tyrrell.

Reports say the older model Toyota belongs to Tony Jones, a person of interest in the case, who was sentenced on Friday to three years jail for the aggravated indecent assault of a young child.

Three year old William disappeared from his grandmother's home at Kendall, near Port Macquarie on the NSW mid-north coast, in September 2014.

Earlier this month, his parents spoke for the first time about their son's disappearance in an interview with 60 Minutes.

"William was stolen," his mother said.

"He's got nowhere else to be, but home."

A fortnight ago, on the anniversary of his disappearance, thousands of Australians rallied in support of William and his family as part of national Where’s William Week.

The event was designed to remind people that William is still missing, and the search will continue until William is found and brought home to his family.

“The more support we have across the community, the more people we can reach and the greater the chance we have of encouraging somebody to come forward with what we hope will be that vital piece of information that can help Police find William and bring him home to us where he belongs,” William’s father said in a press statement at the time.

No one has been arrested or charged over William’s disappearance, and the case has been referred to the NSW coroner.
