A man living in the NSW town where toddler William Tyrrell was last seen is "sure" he saw the boy in the back of a fast-moving car, a court has heard.
The inquest into the three-year-old's 2014 disappearance resumed in Taree on Monday.
Kendall resident Ronald Chapman was questioned about his claim that he saw a young boy wearing a Spider-Man suit the day William went missing in September 2014.
Mr Chapman was asked whether it was possible he had mistaken the boy - in the back seat of a car that went by his home - for the grandson of a neighbour known to wear a Spider-Man suit from time to time.
"I'm sure it was William Tyrrell that was in the vehicle," he told the coroners court.
