A young girl who is believed to have been forcibly taken from a home north of Brisbane on Tuesday has been found safe and well on the Sunshine Coast.

Queensland Police issued an Amber Alert on Tuesday afternoon and said in a statement that six-year-old Lillee was seen being forced into a vehicle outside of a house on Lyndfield Drive in Caboolture around 9am by a 24-year-old woman named Shannon Millikin and two unidentified men and was believed to be at significant risk.

Police later confirmed the young child was then located by authorities around 3:20pm with Millikin on the Sunshine Coast.

"Lilee is described as being Caucasian, 120cm tall with a proportionate build, brown eyes, brown hair and was wearing a navy blue tutu dress with white stars and a tulle skirt, and no shoes," the statement said.
