Three hospitalised, three arrested in Loganlea stabbing

Three children found “safe” after night alone, man charged

Three missing children have been found safe after spending the night alone in a car at Mount Warren Park.

A man, who is reportedly the children’s father, has since been charged with negligance.

An amber alert was signalled on Sunday evening, calling for information to help find three children – aged three, five and six – who were last seen leaving Paradise Point with a man “known to them” earlier that afternoon (7 July).

Police said they found the man, who Detective Acting Superintendent Mark White reportedly said was the children’s biological father, on Sunday night at a Slacks Creek address.

“The children and the vehicle remain outstanding,” a police statement said at the time.

On Monday morning (8 July), police announced the three children had been found “safe” at around 7am at a 7/11 on Rochester Drive, Mount Warren Park.

A 27-year-old old Paradise Point man was then charged with three counts each of cruelty to children under 16 years and leaving a child under 12 unattended.

“Police will allege the man failed to provide reasonable provision for the supervision and care for three children known to him,” police said.

Police continue to appeal for anyone who may have seen the blue Hyundai i30 with Queensland registration 205SKW travelling between the Gold Coast and Logan areas between 4.30pm and 10pm last night.

Anyone with any information relating to the incident is also urged to contact police.

Investigations are continuing.
