Concerns grow for heavily pregnant woman, three children missing from Sydney

Police are searching for a heavily pregnant woman and her three children after they disappeared from a park in Sydney’s south-west on Sunday afternoon.

The family was last seen about 2pm at Koshigaya Park in Campbelltown, and police have now appealed for public help to find them.

Police and family have growing concerns for the children’s welfare, as all three live with medical conditions and do not have their medication.

Police have released photos of Elizabeth Harpley, 36, and her sons, Mathew Harpley, 10, Christopher Harpley, 9, and Mitchell Devine-Harpley, 5, as part of the public appeal.

“Police are urging anyone who sights the children to contact Triple Zero (000) immediately,” police said in a statement.

Police believe the group may be travelling with a 49-year-old man, who is known to the family. The public has been asked to keep an eye out for the man’s vehicle – a red Jeep with Queensland registration plates 061VKM.

Police believe he is the father of one of the children.
