UPDATE: Missing four-year-old Annaleise Grace Harris-Edwards has been reunited with her father.

Annaleise was found last night on the Gold Coast.

Her father, Charlie Harris, flew to Queensland last night to be with his daughter.

 

EARLIER:  Missing persons advocate Nicole Morris, of Crows Nest, has joined the search for missing four-year-old Annaleise Grace Harris-Edwards.

The little girl was reported missing shortly after sole custody was awarded to her father Charlie Harris in October.

The Family Court of Australia believes Annaleise is in the company of her maternal grandmother Bronwyn Edwards who may be hiding out in the Toowoomba area.

"Charlie first contacted me several weeks ago but at that time I couldn't help much due to the Family Court privacy laws," Ms Morris, who also co-ordinates the Missing Person Register website, said.

"With the publication order in place, I can now put out appeals for sightings of Bronwyn and Annaleise on my website.

"Also, as there's a chance they're in Toowoomba, and I live locally, I am able to go and search places like shopping centres and parks looking for the car.

"I am so keen to see her home for Christmas with her dad."

In October, Mr Harris of Sydney went to collect his daughter from preschool only to discover she was not there.

She has not been seen since.

The Family Court of Australia has issued a publication order for Annaleise's recovery.

Annaleise, who turns five on December 20, is described as having a petite build, blue eyes and light brown shoulder length hair.

She has a gap between her front upper teeth.

Mrs Edwards is described as being in her mid-50s, Caucasian of average build with dark brown hair. She drives a red/pink Hyundai Excel.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800333000.
