Four missing children found 200 metres away

A panicked mother was quickly relieved after discovering her four children were missing, only to be found “five minutes” later.

Stawell Sergeant Bryan Anderson said police were notified about 10am on Wednesday.  

“The kids went from their Centenary Court home, crossed London Road and went down Napier Street where they were found outside their grandmother’s house,” he said. 

“Luckily they were only 200 metres down the road and it didn’t turn into a more serious job.”
