Miracle as missing four-year-old girl Shayla Phillips is found ALIVE and well 500m from the house she disappeared from after two cold nights in the bush

  • The little girl disappeared from her family’s home in Tasmania on Wednesday 

Missing four-year-old Shayla Phillips has been found safe and well just 500m away from her home after two nights in the Tasmanian bush.

The little girl was last seen playing with her neighbour’s two dogs about 2.30pm on Wednesday afternoon in her mother’s backyard in Stormlea.

A 100-strong team of emergency service workers had been scouring the surrounding bushland for two days before she was found on Friday afternoon.

Sniffer dogs, helicopters, horses and thermal imaging drones had all been used in the desperate search for the child.

Search and rescue teams were hopeful the youngster would be found safe and well,  as temperatures have not fallen dramatically overnight – hitting 13C on Thursday night, and about 10C the night before.

Tasmania Police Assistant commissioner Jonathan Higgins earlier said there was no reason to believe anyone was involved in Shayla’s disappearance.
