As per the Courier-Mail, Ruby was allegedly missing for between half an hour to an hour by the time her family contacted the police. After officers arrived at the scene about midnight on Tuesday morning, they immediately began searching for the child. Police divers and SES crews investigated the area using thermal technology.

Sky Gulliver, Ruby’s mother, had previously urged a heartbreaking plea for her little girl to be returned home:

“I just want my little girl home where she is safe. It’s killing me to know she is out there away from her parents that love her so much.”
