NSW Police has issued an amber alert as they search for a toddler missing from Grafton on the state’s north coast.
The 22-month-old, Aria Jane Killiby, has been missing since Monday morning and is believed to be with her father, Leroy Killiby.
Officers said they searched an address at North Street in Grafton to recover Aria due to “extreme concerns” for the toddler’s welfare.
But when they searched the residence the child and her 24-year-old father were nowhere to be found.
Aria is described as being of Caucasian appearance with a fair complexion, blonde hair and brown eyes.
The father is described as being of Caucasian appearance with a fair complexion, of medium build, about 170-175 centimetres tall with brown hair and a brown beard.
Police said he had recently shaved one side of his head and tattooed the words “Aria Jane” with a wasp motif.
It is believed they are travelling in a red Jeep Cherokee with the Queensland registration plates 131XDG and may be travelling towards Queensland.
He was known to frequent Tweed Heads and Queensland.
Police asked the public to be on alert and report any sightings of Mr Killiby or the car.
