Stakeout leaves Qld police empty handed

AAP logoAAP 13/10/2016

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.

But it was revoked around 8pm after police worked out he wasn't there at all.

Police would not say what the man was wanted for.
