His foster father - who can not be identified - told police, "He never wanders. He's not a wanderer.
"I was thinking so many things all at once. I need to cover as much ground as I possibly can in the shortest amount of time."
In coming weeks, the coronial inquest will call upon witnesses, persons of interests, and review evidence collected by NSW Police since the little boy went missing from his foster grandmother's rural property on the state's Mid-North Coast which he and his family were visiting at the time.
But it's the persons of interest list that's caught the country's attention today.
According to the Sun Herald, a source claims there is a person on the list whose name has never been made public, and they will be the focus of the inquest.
