The NSW Police Force is seeking urgent public assistance to help locate two children missing from Sydney’s east this morning.
Just before 2.30am (Thursday 1 April 2021), Bowie and Basten Dowlut, aged four and ten respectively, were at a home on Carthona Avenue, Darling Point, with their parents.
Despite strong protestations from the children’s mother, their father, Dennis Dowlut, aged 47, packed the family into a white 2014 SsangYong Actyon SUV, with NSW registration DLF-43A, expressing an intention to travel to Melbourne.
About 3am, their mother was forced from the vehicle at Alexandria and notified police.
Dennis is described as being of Mauritian background with an olive complexion, about 180cm tall, of slim build, and balding. He was last seen wearing black pants, a white t-shirt, khaki puffer jacket, and a red beanie.
Four-year-old Bowie is described as having an olive complexion, long brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing white pyjamas with pink unicorn symbols.
Ten-year-old Basten is described as having an olive complexion, short brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing white pyjama pants, a white t-shirt, and black puffer jacket.
There are extreme concerns for the safety of the children, and as such police are asking the public to be on alert, not approach but report any sightings of this man, or vehicle to Triple Zero (000).
Ring Triple Zero (000) to provide any information about the missing persons.
