A widow has said she does not want her late husband used as an alibi by a person of interest in the William Tyrrell case.

As reported on A Current Affair last night, Tony Jones, who lived 20 minutes from the Kendall home William disappeared from in 2014, offered his first public alibi.

Mr Jones, who remains a person of interest in the case but has not been charged, said he was helping a neighbour install a hot water system at his house the day the then-three-year-old vanished.

The neighbour has since died, but his widow told A Current Affair that Mr Jones did install a hot water system at their house, at least four months before William's suspected abduction.

She said Mr Jones had driven a white station wagon seized by police for evidence, which Mr Jones claimed belonged to his ex-partner.

Nobody has been charged in the investigation into William's disappearance.

The New South Wales government has offered a $1 million reward for information that leads to the boy's recovery.

Anybody with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
