Police asked for public assistance to help locate the four children who are believed to have driven a four-wheel-drive from Rockhampton to New South Wales on Sunday.
The children, a 14-year-old boy, two 13-year-old boys, and a 10-year-old girl took the silver 2004 Nissan Patrol from Gracemere on Saturday night and drove over 1,000 kilometres.
The group took fishing rods and cash, and one of the children left a note to his family indicating he was leaving.
The four-wheel drive was sighted at a service station in Banana at 4.45am on Sunday when it was involved in a petrol stealing incident.
The vehicle travelled across the border to New South Wales and was sighted near Glen Innes early on Sunday afternoon.
Police are thanking the media and public for their assistance. Investigations into the matter are ongoing.
