APPEAL FOR HELP: Australian Federal Police searching for abducted 5yo girl

AUSTRALIAN Federal Police are appealing for help to find a 5-year-old girl, who was parentally abducted in April last year.

The Federal Circuit Court of Australia has issued a recovery order for Alia Bugsby Goble, who is believed to be with her mother, 44-year-old Tarryn Leigh Corlet.

The order authorises police to return the child, who has been missing since April 2017, to her father.


Alia has fair hair, blue eyes, fair skin, is approximately 97cm tall and has a dimple in her chin.

Tarryn has light brown hair, brown eyes and a fair complexion. She is approximately 165cm tall and is slightly built, however she may have changed her appearance.

Federal Police say the location of Tarryn and Alia is unknown, and they have reminded the public “that anyone who is found to be providing support to an abducting parent may themselves be committing a serious offence.”

The Court has also made a publication order to allow photographs and details of Alia and her mother to be published in the hope that someone will come forward with information on their possible whereabouts.

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

If you have information for Police, please contact Policelink on 131 444 or provide information using their online form 24 hours per day.

You can also report information about crime anonymously to Crime Stoppers by calling 1800 333 000 or via 24 hours per day. Crime Stoppers is a registered charity and community volunteer organisation.
