Police have found a two-year-old boy who was taken from a Brisbane hospital before doctors could see him.

Police won’t say where the child was found, but have thanked members of the public after officers issued an urgent appeal for help to find the boy, who was said to be at significant risk.

A man and a woman who are known to the boy took him from the South Brisbane hospital before doctors could see him about 8pm on Thursday.

Police issued an amber alert, used in cases where children are taken and believed to be at risk.

The hunt was focused on finding a maroon Ford Falcon, registration 450XQA, which the trio left the hospital in.

They were believed to have been driving to the Redlands area, in Brisbane’s southeast.

They would not say what the child is suffering from, and would not say if the hospital involved as the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, which is in South Brisbane.
