“The news in February that Detective Chief Inspector Gary Jubelin was removed from William’s case came as a crushing blow to us and with it, a deep sense of fear that the investigation into William’s disappearance would no longer have the passion, commitment and concentrated efforts of one of the world’s leading police investigators.
“For more than 4 years, we maintained supreme confidence in Chief Inspector Gary Jubelin and Strike Force Rosann who have steadfastly dedicated their exhaustive efforts to finding out what has happened to our precious little boy, and all the while with care and compassion for William and those who love him. Our confidence in Gary and Strike Force Rosann and our deep respect for their professionalism is unwavering. With the news overnight that Gary has resigned from the NSW Police, not only has NSW lost one of Australia’s most dedicated and compassionate detectives; William’s investigation has lost 4 years of in-depth knowledge of one of the most intensive investigations ever undertaken in this country.
“We are incredibly disappointed and saddened by the events that have led to this news.”
