UPDATE 4:20pm

The Queensland Police Service have located the four boys who were at risk after being reported missing from Edmonton.

The boys were reported to be with a woman known to them.

The woman and the four boys have been located safe and well at an Edmonton address around 3:45pm.

The car had been located a short time earlier in Hartley St, Cairns.

Investigations are continuing.

Police would like to thank the media and the public for their assistance.


The boys were last seen with 27-year-old woman Justine Margaret Murphy (pictured), who is known to them, at an Archibald Street address this morning.
