There are two stories on ABC online (here and here) about 3 Canberrans arrested in Queensland for child abduction. They allegedly took a two year old girl and an eight month old boy from a child care centre in Kambah.
As someone with a two year old boy and a 10 month old boy in child care, this story sent shivers down my spine. I wonder what their connection is with the kids (can’t seem to find any more details) and how they managed to ‘take’ the kids from the centre? I have to declare in writing who is authorised to take my kids and they have to show ID if anyone other than mum or dad comes to collect the kids. I would assume all child care centres have a similar policy.
