    Human remains found at a property in Brisbane’s north last month have been confirmed as belonging to a man who went missing in 1986.

    The remains, clothing and a ring and gold watch were found in a disused septic tank by a plumber at the back of a North Street, Brighton special education facility during routine maintenance on November 29.

    Police today said they had been matched to Wayne James Youngkin, who previously lived at the address and disappeared when he was aged 29.

    Boy, 4, grabbed by stranger in Kings Park

    Police are appealing for help to identify a man who tried to snatch a child from Kings Park on Tuesday.

    A four-year-old boy was playing near family at Synergy Park on May Drive in Kings Park when a stranger picked him up and started to walk away.

    The alleged abductor put the child down after being challenged by an adult who witnessed the incident and walked towards an access road where several vehicles were parked.

    The wanted man, who was believed to be aged in his 30s, has fair skin, is about 177cms tall with a slim build and short light brown hair.

    He was wearing a blue loose fitting polo T-shirt, baggy knee-length shorts and a white baseball cap.

    A former child migrant, sent from Wales to an Australian orphanage, has told a child abuse inquiry how it was a "feast of kids" for paedophiles working there.

    Giving evidence, the anonymous 72-year-old said Brother Lawrence Murphy took him in to his bedroom twice, forcing him to perform sex acts.

    If I had told anyone, I would have been belted or got the strap, he said.

    Castledare orphanage near Perth, run by the Christian Brothers order, was like "a legal paedophile ring", he said.

    The witness told the inquiry: "If someone did it in the public eye, he'd go to court, he'd get sentenced and he'd serve time.

    "If he'd got a habit on, if you're a Christian Brother then it seemed to be a free-for-all.

    "We knew what would happen if you told somebody, especially in authority, they would say 'this doesn't happen here.'"

    Mass Shooting in Australia Leaves a Tiny Community in Shock and Grief
    By GIOVANNI TORRE and DAMIEN CAVE

    The Margaret River region is a tourism mecca known for its vineyards, its natural beauty and its laid-back, friendly attitude. Now a shadow hangs over the community as people struggle to come to terms with the deaths of three adults and four children in a murder-suicide on Friday morning.

    The police say they believe that Peter Miles shot his wife, Cynda Miles, who was a prominent member of the community; their daughter Katrina Miles; and their four grandchildren before calling the police and then taking his own life.
