    ACT Policing issue first-ever amber alert for missing boy Phoenix Mapham

    ACT Police who issued the territory's first-ever amber alert have serious concerns for the wellbeing of a six-year-old boy taken from the playground of his Canberra School by his mother.

    Tessa Woodcock is suspected of dragging her son Phoenix Mapham, who she does not have legal custody of, away from the playground.

    "We just want to know if he's safe," Phoenix's father, Cliff Mapham, told 9NEWS.


    Mr Mapham's partner, Rachel Climer, also said Ms Woodcock is suspected of being seen during the incident, which occurred in front of other children.

    "(They) saw Phoenix being dragged by the hand. He was trying to keep up and she was dragging him along," she said.

    Detective Senior Sergeant Harry Hains said at a press conference that the young boy was last seen being driven by a woman suspected to be Ms Woodcock at Weston Creek at 1.30pm on Thursday.

    Snatched from a school oval in front of his classmates: Police hold grave concerns for safety of boy, 6, who was 'taken by his mother'

    A six-year-old boy missing for almost a week was unlawfully taken by his mother, police believe.

    Fears are growing for Phoenix Mapham - believed to have been last seen being driven away in a car by his mother Tessa Woodcock - in Weston Creek, Canberra at 1.30pm on Thursday.

    Ms Woodcock does not have custody of her son.

    In a statement on Wednesday afternoon, Detective Station Sergeant Harry Hains appealed directly to the boy's mother and said police had serious concerns for son's safety and well-being.

    'Tessa, we need to know your son is OK,' etective Hains said.

    'We are talking about his health, we are talking about his safety.

    'You need to bring him to a place where we can verify that you are taking care of him.

    'That could be a hospital, a doctors' surgery, a health facility or a police station.'

    Police searching for Phoenix and his mother have issued the ACT's first ever amber alert.

    The code is used to find children in abduction or high-risk missing child cases.

    The boy's father Cliff Mapham, who hasn't seen his son since he dropped him off at Orana Steiner School on Thursday, issued a desperate plea for him to be brought home.

    According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Mr Mapham said: 'I just want to know if he's safe, that's my main priority'.

    The mother of Canberra boy Phoenix Mapham has been arrested and will face charges for allegedly taking him unlawfully, after the six-year-old was found alive after going missing last week.

    Phoenix is undergoing medical checks at Canberra Hospital to ensure he is fully healthy and will be reunited with his father, Cliff Mapham.

    Mr Mapham said the week had been a rollercoaster of emotions.

    "We are so relieved that Phoenix has been brought home safely," he said.

    "This is the best day."
