Mother of missing boy assisting police
UPDATE: THE mother of a four-year-old boy missing from hospital has been found in NSW and is assisting police.
Queensland Police confirmed Friday afternoon that the father, Marc Steven, has the boy, Chase Walker-Steven, in a blue Honda CRV and is likely in northern NSW.
The mother, Cini Walker, was located by officers in Newcastle this afternoon.
"The mother thankfully has been found. We need to find the child and get him medical assistance," Detective Acting Inspector Grant Ralston said.
Det Insp Ralston said the child needed medical attention "rather quickly".
A concerned resident contacted police after seeing the Amber Alert issued earlier today.
EARLIER: THE parents of a missing boy who is subject to an Amber Alert are well-known anti-vaxxers whose son has a serious medical condition.
The couple claims their son four-year-old Chase Walker-Steven requires medicinal marijuana products which was not being provided to him in hospital.
Chase was taken from the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital in Brisbane yesterday and has not been located.
Police allege the couple, mother Cini Walker, 26, and father Marc Steven, 28, took their son from the facility and are now on the run.
Cini has a significant social media following and has detailed Chase's suffering on a website and via Facebook videos earlier this year which have garnered more than 2700 likes and 4500 shares.
"To this day Chase has been diagnosed with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy (with no brain damage on his MRI) and uncontrolled epilepsy with the doctors saying that Chase has an epileptic gene that they cannot find," she wrote on a website called Church of Ubuntu.
"Chase has up to 100 seizures a day 80% of those things is happening inside his brain not visible 10 tonic clonic seizures and several jerking seizures throughout the day."
Cini is an advocate of the Church of Ubuntu. It's mantra is "The Earth, therefore I am".
"We are a Church and wellness community that focuses on total health and diet, using natural plant based alternative healing methods," Church of Ubuntu's website reads.
