A desperate search is underway for a 12-year-old boy who vanished days ago from a coastal town.
Police said the boy disappeared from the Hervey Bay suburb of Urraween in Queensland’s south-east on Wednesday.
He was last seen about 11.30am that day near Heather Way.
The boy is described as being Caucasian, approximately 165cm tall with blue eyes and light brown/blonde hair.
At the time of his disappearance he was wearing light-coloured shorts, a black t-shirt with black shoes.
He was riding a black and green scooter.
The boy may have also been wearing a white jumper with a hood with black shorts, black/white shoes and a backpack.
Police are concerned about his welfare due to his age.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Policelink or Crime Stoppers rather than approach him directly.
