Little girl, 3, found wandering the streets

UPDATE: THE mother of the toddler found wandering the streets on NSW’s Central Coast this morning has been in contact with police.

NSW police previously sent out an urgent alert urging her parents to get in touch.

It is alleged the little girl followed her dad out of the house early this morning as he left for work but could not remember where home was.


The toddler’s mother is currently speaking to police and representatives from other government departments.

The Commander of the Brisbane Water Local Area Command, Superintendent Danny Sullivan, thanked the community for their support.

“Courtesy of the community taking an active role in this appeal, we were able to reach more than 160,000 people via social media alone,” Superintendent Sullivan said.

“On behalf of all of the officers here in Brisbane Water, I would like to extend our thanks to the public for their outstanding support in helping us find this young girl’s mother.”
