Amber alert children may have crossed border
POLICE believe an eight-year-old boy and a four-year-old girl who are missing from Harristown, near Toowoomba, could be at significant risk and may have crossed the border to NSW.
Queensland Police issued an Amber Alert around 4.46pm Sunday, with officers appealing for urgent public help to locate the children. It said the children had been missing since 11.50am.
The children are believed to be with 30-year-old Casey Allwood and travelling in a 1999 white Toyota Camry sedan with Queensland registration 759 KMD, which was last seen travelling eastbound at Gatton about 12.20pm today.
Allwood is described as caucasian, 160cm tall with a slim build, blonde hair and brown eyes.
The eight-year-old boy is described as caucasian, with blonde hair and blue eyes.
The four-year-old girl is described as caucasian with blonde hair.
Police initially said the group were believed to be travelling south but also may also be in the Toowoomba or Bundaberg areas. It was later stated Queensland Police had reached out to NSW colleagues and "have reason to believe they may have crossed the border".
A police spokeswoman said there had been a sighting of the person of interest from CCTV footage at Coles Express Tweed Heads at 2.28pm and McDonald's 2.34pm yesterday afternoon.
