    'AN Amber alert has been issued for a five-year-old girl missing in Nerang.

    Search efforts have been ramped up, with SES personnel from Logan being called in to assist.

    The little girl has been missing since 4:30pm Sunday after running off from her parents on Nielsen Road.

    Inspector Tony Wormald said residents around the area have joined in the search and there have been confirmed sightings of the girl.

    “Some people have seen her in some of the back streets earlier in the afternoon. However the last confirmed sighting was around 5:30pm this afternoon,” Insp Wormald said.

    About 120 emergency service personnel are currently searching for the child, who suffers from a medical condition.

    Inspector Wormald said there is nothing to suggest anything untoward has happened to the girl, but police hold grave concern for her wellbeing as she is dressed in only a dark pink shirt, denim shorts and is not wearing shoes.

    It is understood the little girl is unfamiliar with the area.'

    Yes, lots of water but, hopefully, this little one has just found somewhere warm and safe to sleep and can't hear people calling her name. Jocelyn must be so tired, hungry and scared. I hope she found a friendly dog to curl up with and to keep her safe and warm.

    MSM just said Jocelyn had a 'medical condition'. No other details.

    Apparently there have been announcements from police choppers overhead asking people in the area to check their yards, etc, from the Courier-Mail story.

    Just looking at google maps and I'm a bit confused.

    The primary search area is WEST of the M1 but Nielsens Road is EAST of the M1?

    It said park on the western end..... the only one I could see was Alan Nielson Park..... the other "green area" is a golf course.

    If it was Alan Neilson...which appears more recreational.... she would have had to moved North..or she would have been seen (located) already as there is a main street to the south..

    There are houses backing onto Alan Neilson ....but they are their back fences......

    Too much water in the are for my liking...ohhh her poor parents...

    I hope your right Bo....

    Oh my. Where she could be? Why is she running? Could the medical condition be autism? Asking because of her fleeing. And because of the water nearby.
    I hope she's found.

    Yeah Im slightly confused to by that report.... M1? ....... thought it was Hwy 90

    Arrggg either way Neilson Road is definately on the western side of the major road.....there is no way a 5 year old could cross it.

    Possibly sloppy reporting. ...

    Maybe they're searching the 'Fred Cass Family Park'. That's very near the M1 overpass on Neilsen Road.
