Horror as two little children are ‘taken by their father in the middle of the night’ in a white SUV after he forced their mum out in the middle of the road – as police hold ‘extreme concerns’ for the kids

Police are urgently searching for two missing children after they were allegedly taken from their eastern Sydney home in the middle of the night by their father. 

Bowie and Basten Dowlut, aged four and ten respectively, were with their parents at a property on Carthona Avenue, in Darling Point, at about 2.30am on Thursday. 

Their father Dennis Dowlut, 47, then packed the family-of-four into a white 2014 SsangYong Actyon SUV, declaring he intended to drive to Melbourne.

The children’s mother strongly protested the late night journey and was thrown out of the car at about 3am in Alexandria.
