Multi-agency Taskforce established – Grace Hughes abduction

Northern Territory Police are increasing the focus on a group that is hiding five-year-old Grace Hughes.

A dedicated multi-agency taskforce has been formed with specialist support from other jurisdictions including the Australian Federal Police.

The taskforce is committed to locating her and reuniting her with her lawful guardian.

Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Jon Beer said the group that claims to have abducted Grace continues to peddle ideologies and false information that have no regard for the mental wellbeing of a five-year-old girl.

“The conduct of this group is despicable.

“NT Police will continue to target this group and any other persons assisting the ongoing harbouring of Grace.

“Police will use every power available to them to locate Grace. Anyone who is found to have harboured those who abducted Grace will face significant charges before the courts.

“Any persons inside this group or any members of the public that have any knowledge of Grace’s abduction are urged to come forward and contact police on 131 444 or anonymously via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.”
