An urgent search is underway to find a baby missing from Canberra for more than a month.

Hoang Vinh Le, who is 10 months old, was last seen at a medical practice in the Canberra suburb of O’Connor on April 9.

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the Federal Circuit Court of Australia are seeking public assistance to help locate the 10-month-old baby.

“The child was reportedly put into a Silver ISUZU MU-X 4WD with the NSW registration CF72YI,” said a statement jointly released by the AFP and Federal Circuit Court.

The baby has not been seen since and it is believed he may have been taken to the Temora area in the northeastern part of the NSW Riverina region.

The statement said Hoang is with his 21-year-old mum, Lyn Kim Do, and father Hoang Thanh Le, 28, who may have also been in the West Wyalong area in the Riverina.

They are currently believed to be in the Liverpool and Bankstown areas of Sydney.

Mr Le is a Vietnamese Australian who is about 160cm tall with black, short, spiky hair, black eyes and light skin tone.

He is known to speak with an Australian accent and sometimes goes by the name Sam Le.

Hoang’s mum is a Vietnamese-Australian woman who is about 150cm tall with shoulder-length black hair, black eyes and pale skin.

If anyone has information about the whereabouts of the child, or his parents they are asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report anonymously online.
