    Updated Article:
    The family of five young north Queensland children, including a baby girl, may be helping to hide them from authorities, police say.
    ...

    However Detective Senior Sergeant Dave Miles, from the Townsville child protection investigation unit, said they're not certain whether Mr Smallwood is still with the children.

    "At this point in time we're not sure if he's still with them or whether he's with other individuals who may be assisting him with his endeavours," he told reporters in Townsville.

    Senior Sergeant Miles wouldn't go into detail about why police held such serious concerns for the children's welfare.
    "We have a current investigation running where concerns have been raised in relation to instances and issues that these children may have been exposed to," he said.

    "As a result of that we believe that there are significant concerns for their safety and we need to locate the children and bring them into our custody for the purpose of conducting further inquiries and investigations."

    Senior Sergeant Miles said the Amber Alert was activated as a result of information received overnight.
