Brisbane Police Stakeout Ends After Realising No One Is Home
Police have spent more than five hours staking out a Brisbane house in the hunt for a wanted man, only to find no one was home.
Officers arrived at the Morayfield home around 2.40pm on Thursday and, believing the man to be inside, issued an emergency declaration nearly three hours later.

Police would not say what the man was wanted for.
