POLICE now believe that four children who have driven a four-wheel-drive from Rockhampton to New South Wales over the weekend are currently in the Grafton area.
In a notice posted to the Coffs/Clarence Facebook page, police are urging anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the four children to contact police immediately.
It is understood a 14-year-old boy, two 13-year-old boys, and a 10--year-old girl took the silver 2004 Nissan Patrol (pictured) with Queensland registration 271JTT from Gracemere in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The group took fishing rods, cash and one of the children left a note to his family indicating he was leaving.
