Help us find abducted Alia Goble

This is a joint media release between the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the Federal Circuit Court of Australia

The AFP is renewing its appeal for public assistance to help locate Alia Bugsy Goble, who was parentally abducted in April 2017. Alia’s father has not seen his daughter since April 2017, and encourages anyone with information on the whereabouts of his daughter to contact Crime Stoppers.

Alia Goble, 5, was born 23 March 2013 and is likely to be with her mother, Tarryn Leigh Corlet, 44, born 16 February 1974.  Tarryn has light brown hair, brown eyes and a fair complexion.  She is approximately 165 cm tall with a slight build. Tarryn may have changed her appearance.

Alia has fair hair, blue eyes and fair skin. She is approximately 97cm tall and has a dimple in her chin.

The location of Tarryn and Alia is unknown.

The Federal Circuit Court of Australia has issued a recovery order authorising all members of the Australian Federal Police and the State and Territory Police forces to recover Alia and to return her to her father. The Court has also made a publication order to allow photographs and details of Alia and her mother to be published in the hope that a member of the public will come forward with information on their possible whereabouts.

The AFP reminds the public that anyone who is found to be providing support to an abducting parent may themselves be committing a serious offence.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Alia or Tarryn is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000
