Abduction alert for toddler proves to be unfounded

AN abduction alert issued by Queensland Police proved to be unfounded after the boy was found safe in the custody of his father.

Yesterday, police issued the alert to help locate a 21-month-old boy who was taken from Darnell Street, Elanora about 7:30pm on Tuesday night.

Police said the boy may be at risk. However, police called off the allert and said they were compelled to follow up on all abduction reports.

In this case the father had a legal right to have his son in his care, police said.
