Four children have been abducted from a property in Queensland.
Police issued an amber alert on Thursday evening after the children – aged eight, seven, four and three – were taken from the home near Mackay.
Police believe they could be in significant danger.
They were snatched near The Leap at around 11.30am, cops said.
The children are all white, slim and have brown hair.
A white man with a solid build was seen taking the children and leaving in a white 2005 Nissan Patrol 4WD with the number plate 063BC9, police said.
He is about 175cm tall with a shaved head and large beard.
The man has several tattoos on his neck, face and body. One makes reference to the Joker from Batman.
The car was last seen heading towards the Bruce Highway in Mackay.
