The family of William Tyrrell has distanced themselves from Schapelle Corby, after Corby's unexpected way of drawing attention to the missing boy.
While leaving her villa in Kuta, Bali to fly back to Australia, the 39-year-old held her handbag above her head to the mass of media, showing a picture of William taped to the front accompanied by the words "Where's William Tyrrell?"
Now, the organisers of the 'Where's William' campaign have written a statement, expressing that while they appreciate her concern, William's family don't want to be associated with a convicted drug smuggler in any way.
"While the Where’s William Campaign appreciates that Schapelle Corby has shown concern regarding little William’s disappearance and in using her release as a convicted offender from Bali as a media opportunity to increase awareness that William is still missing, we are not happy," the Facebook post started.
"William’s family and their campaign to support the NSW Police in their investigation in the search for William have absolutely no association with Schapelle Corby, her supporters or her family and had no prior knowledge of Miss Corby’s intention to use William’s image in this way."
"While the Where’s William Campaign aims to increase awareness where possible, this situation regarding Miss Corby has no association whatsoever to William, his loved ones or their campaign to find their little boy," it finished.
Corby arrived back in Australia today, where she was met by a Presidential-like convoy of black SUVs, after flying business class from Bali to Brisbane.
She has been documenting the past few days on Instagram, to a growing following of 142k, with many left wondering who funded her opulent journey back to the country.
