“The girl has been located safe and well,” Queensland Police announced in a statement on Sunday afternoon.

“Media and the public are thanked for their assistance.”

Police and the girl’s family held serious concern for her welfare due to her young age.

Profiles were shared online describing the girl as caucasian, approximately 170cm tall with a slim build, long blonde hair and green eyes.

Police believed the girl may have used public transport in the Logan or Gold Coast areas, particularly around Surfers Paradise.

Officers had previously appealed to the girl or anyone with information about her whereabouts to come forward.
