Police dig Brisbane backyard for missing toddler

POLICE digging up a backyard south of Brisbane have seized a number of items in the search for a New South Wales toddler who has been missing for nearly a decade.

Police said the items would undergo forensic testing.

A crime scene had been established in Woodridge as officers from the NSW State Crime Command's Homicide Squad work with Queensland detectives in a search for any trace of the boy.

The 22-month-old has not been seen by his immediate relatives since 2007.

It's understood the child began living with extended family in that year, but has not been seen since.
