Young Queensland girl missing for more than four years has been found by police.

Layla Leisha, 11, had been missing since June 2014 when the Family Court issued a recovery order, before she was located by Australian Federal Police on Sunday, shares Yahoo 7.

She was believed to be with her father Shahrainier Eric Shem Leisha, 45, at the time of her disappearance.

Last month, a relative believed they spotted Layla at Woorabinda, an Aboriginal community in Central Queensland, and authorities were alerted, shared Daily Mail.

The AFP would not disclose where Layla was found, but early investigations into her disappearance centred on Lismore in NSW, where she has family.

“The AFP would like to thank the public and media for their continued interest and support in the matter,” a statement read.

  • wonderful news that she is safe and well, certainly not the outcome expected after being missing so long. The family must be so shocked and relieved.

  • I hope the girl has not suffered too much trauma during the course of events when she was located. Witnessing the arrest will surely have a lasting effect on her, especially as she is old enough to remember it. They should not have stated the locations involved.

  • Her mother must be thrilled.


    • Her mother was the predator…
      An Unbecoming parent doesnt deserve any rights, especially when a child consistently reveals that parent being a predator…
      My Family and I have Full Custody of My Daughter, her mother had portrayed herself has a victim but was then revealed has an unbecoming predator…
      Parents like me have the right at Law and at Customary Lore (Aboriginal) to assert Our Rights to stand up and Protect Our Children and Community… to date newspapers and news media teams have refused to let Us tell the real thruth and The Outcome of Our Case… but 1 day Our truth shall be told…
