Police will allege the woman took the girl and bundled her into the car while the man distracted the father before the vehicle fled the scene.

A major police operation commenced with assistance from Traffic and Highway Patrol Command and PolAir as the car travelled north on the M1 motorway.

Dramatic footage shot from a police helicopter shows the moment police stopped the vehicle at Kinta Drive in Beresfield, Newcastle, about 2.20pm.

Two women – one of whom is known to the girl and understood to be a family member – and two men were arrested at the scene before being taken to Raymond Terrace Police Station.

The girl was found in the vehicle distressed but uninjured; she has since been reunited with her father.
