Layla-Leisha
The missing girl, Layla Leisha.

The public has been asked to help locate a seven-year old girl who is thought to be in the Lismore area.

The Family Court of Australia had ordered that Layla Leisha be returned to the Commonwealth Law Courts in Brisbane on 23 June.

As Layla was not returned on that date, the court has issued a publication order to seek public assistance to help locate her.

Layla is believed to be with her father, Shahrainer Eric Shem Leisha.

As Mr Leisha has family members living near Lismore, it is possible that they may be residing in that area.

Mr Leisha is 42 years old and is a person of Aboriginal descent.

Layla was born on 8 December 2006, has dark brown hair, brown eyes and is approximately 140 centimetres in height and of average build.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Layla Leisha is urged to contact Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.

Information provided to Crimestoppers can be made anonymously.
