A missing 18-month old has been found safe and well in Halls Creek.

A frantic community-wide search for toddler Roberta Mosquito was sparked after her parents reported her missing about 1.30am today.

Superintendent Greg Crofts said police from all over the district had been called in to help search for the child.

Along with SES volunteers, they spent the night searching nearby homes and bushland.
