AUSTRALIAN Federal Police are appealing for help to find a 4-year-old girl and her mother, who have relatives on the Gold Coast and on the Central Coast of NSW.
The Federal Circuit Court of Australia has issued a recovery order for Alia Bugsby Goble, who is believed to be with her mother, 43-year-old Tarryn Leigh Corlet.
The order authorises police to return the child, who has been missing since April, to her father.
Alia has short 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.
Federal Police say the location of Tarryn and Alia is unknown, but they have relatives on the Gold Coast and on the Central Coast of NSW.
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.
