Police are searching for a young boy and his sister who went missing from a park in casino yesterday.

The two children, William Bradbury, 10, and his four-year-old sister Savanah, were at Colley Park on West Street, Casino, around 3pm when their mother left them to attend a nearby home.

The mother told police that when she returned about 15 minutes later, the two children were missing.

A witness has told police that they saw the two children walk away from the park on their own.

Police attended and began making extensive patrols, and with State Emergency Service members have conducted door knocks in the area and responding to numerous unconfirmed sightings of the children.

William Bradbury is described as Caucasian appearance, stocky build, mousey short hair, and he was wearing a black ‘bad boys’ t-shirt, blue shorts and no shoes.

Savannah Bradbury is described as Caucasian appearance, average height and build, with blonde curly hair, and she was wearing a pink dress with a purple shirt underneath, with white, black and pink coloured shoes.

Anyone who sights the children is asked to contact police immediately or call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

  1. I remember as a child (6 to 10) in Sawtell we 7 were kicked out of the house after breakfast and came back for banana sandwiches at midday then out again til dark. I remember rescuing my little sister from drowning after she fell into the creek and another time when I fell from a tree onto my back and winded myself. We roamed unfettered. I remember an old man trying to touch one of my older sisters, but we ran away.
    I hope the kids are safe and well and look back on this one day as I do. I am sure big brother William is looking after little Savannah. Thoughts are with her Mum.
