POLICE are appealing to the public to help locate Steven Van Lonkhuyzen, 37, and his children Ethan, 7, and Timothy, 5, last seen in the Miles area last Thursday.

Police believe the trio left their home at Lota, near Brisbane, about midnight Thursday, December 11, for Cairns.

The last known contact was at Miles and Taroom on December 11, when Mr Lonkhuyzen contacted his wife.

They were expected in Cairns on Monday. Police hold concerns for their whereabouts as it is out of character for them not to make regular contact.

It is believed the vehicle was last fuelled with petrol at Miles on December 11.

Anyone who has seen them is urged to contact police.
