A man has appeared in court charged with the abduction of a three-year-old girl from her home in southeast Queensland.

Eden James Kane, 45, appeared in Bundaberg Magistrates Court without legal representation on Wednesday morning and did not apply for bail.

He was charged on Tuesday night over the abduction of a toddler from the lounge room of a house in Childers before dawn last week.

After a frantic search, police found the girl in a showground in the dark two days later.

Earlier, Detective Inspector Bruce McNab said the man, from the neighbouring suburb of South Isis, was not known to the family.

“It’s safe to say that he has no links to the family,” he told reporters in Bundaberg.

Magistrate Deborah Vasta remanded Kane in custody until Thursday.

Kane is also facing deprivation of liberty and entering a dwelling with intent charges.
