A male and female have been charged after a young girl was abducted from her home.
Detectives from the Caboolture Child Protection and Investigation Unit have released a statement advising the public they have charged a woman and man following investigations into an incident at a Caboolture home yesterday morning which involved the removal of a six-year-old girl, who subsequently became the subject of a police Amber Alert.
The girl was located safe and well on the Sunshine Coast around 3.20pm yesterday (July 4, 2017).
A 24-year-old Chermside woman and a 31-year-old Mansfield man have both been charged with burglary and commit an indictable offence (domestic violence offence).
The woman has been denied police bail and is due to appear in the Caboolture Magistrates Court this morning.
The man has been released on bail and is due to appear in the same court on July 20.

A New South Wales woman has been accused of poisoning her primary school aged son with faeces, allegedly causing him to be sick for years.
The Blue Mountains mother-of-four, who cannot be named for legal reasons, faces the prospect of up to 10 years in jail after she was charged last month with using poison to endanger a life, reports Daily Mail.
The incident took place in 2014 and the 35-year-old woman was due in Penrith Local Court Tuesday.
The mother applied to vary her bail conditions on Tuesday and did not appear after becoming ‘extremely distressed’ by media reports of her arrest.
Defence barrister Stewart Cole provided medical certificates on his client’s behalf to support her non-attendance.
He argued for the removal of a bail condition that she reports to Katoomba Police Station three times a week, telling Magistrate Ian McRae she did not have a criminal record, suffered onerous medical problems and was not a flight risk.
The magistrate declined to remove the condition completely given the seriousness of the woman’s alleged crime but did alter it so she would only have to report to police once a week.
The court heard the mother does not have primary custody of her four children but still sees them in supervised visits.
Under the bail conditions imposed last month, however, she is no longer able to have any contact with the boy she allegedly infected.
