Jayden and Joseph Brady, the two brothers who went missing from Byron Bay a week ago, have been found.
The pair, aged 14 and 11, met with police in a public space in Byron around midday yesterday.
The police have confirmed they are currently “liaising” with the boy’s family.
News Corp reports the boys had run away from their Tweed Heads home with their dad Daniel Brady, who goes by the name of who goes by the adopted name Omra Ki, on Sunday morning last week.
Mr Brady was arrested on Monday for allegedly breaching bail; he had previously appeared at Lismore Local Court last week in relation to an alleged apprehended violence order breach.
Yesterday, Prosecutor Brett Gradisnik told Tweed Heads Local Court there had been a “real concern” for the boys’ protection.
“Certainly there’s been some suggestion there’s involvement by the accused to use the young children, essentially getting them to do things for him,” Sgt Gradisnik said, according to News Corp.
“The family unit lives in a nomadic type or existence in bushland… The children have, in the past, tested positive to having cannabis and THC (chemical compound) in their bloodstreams.”
Earlier this week, the brother of missing boys denied their disappearance had any relation to “any cult stuff”.
“The reason they are chasing us and trying to split us apart is because my dad discovered the unified field that Albert Einstein looked for for 40 years, the thing that proves we are all connected,” Indigo Brady wrote in an email to The Northern Star. “They don’t want us to put it out because it proves we are all one.”
In the email, Mr Brady also reportedly said he found a note from his brothers, and that “they left of their own accord” because “they hated being vaccinated”.
“They left because they wanted to, there was nothing to do with abduction or any cult stuff,” he wrote, according to The Northern Star.

There are two young boys missing on the far North Coast of NSW.
Two blonde-haired, friendly-looking, laugh-a-minute types.
Their picture has been broadcast on the TV news, and is on the main page of all the news websites.
But it seems the two boys don’t want to be found.
The reason why – insinuated between the lines of each article and police quotes – is disturbing.
Jayden and Joseph Brady, aged 14 and 11, were allegedly abducted by their father, Daniel Brady in Tweed Heads early on Sunday morning.
On Monday their father was arrested at Byron Bay but there was no signs of where his sons were.
Daniel Brady aged 39 had breached an AVO court order, which had several conditions attached, including not accessing his children. Brady was released on bail but reportedly refused to tell police where the boys were and who – if anyone – was looking after them.
It is unclear whose custody the boys were in when he abducted them, but The Northern Star reports police have spoken to their mother who is distraught.
