STILL MISSING: Police believe brothers Jayden and Joseph Brady, who disappeared from their Tweed Heads home on September 14, don’t want to be found.

UPDATE 4.50pm: Police have confirmed the missing Brady brothers 14-year-old Jayden and Joseph,11, have been found.

The boys, had last been seen at home in Tweed Heads about at about 3am on Sunday September 14.

At about midday on Tuesday, the brothers met with police at Suffolk Park near Byron Bay.

Tweed police Inspector Bobbie Cullen confirmed the boys were on the way home to their mother.

Original report: MISSING Brady brothers from the Tweed Byron area, Jayden and Joseph, could spend the next three weeks in the bush without their father Daniel, after he was arrested yesterday.

Brady, 38, was arrested about 6.30am when he was spotted by police walking along Broken Head Rd at Suffolk Park.

He was taken to Byron Bay police station and charged with breaching his bail conditions.

Mate defends Brady dad: He's unconventional but "a good bloke"

Police allege Brady did so by not residing at the Main Arm address he provided to Lismore Local Court when he was granted conditional bail on September 15.

Yesterday at Tweed Heads Local Court, Magistrate P Bugden refused Brady bail and adjourned his matters until October 16, at Mullumbimby Local Court.

It is also alleged Brady breached an apprehended violence order when he removed the boys from the house where they were living with their mother and grandparents at Tweed Heads in the early hours of Sunday, September 14.

Indigo Brady, 17, emailed the Northern Star on Friday to advise he had found a note from his brothers, Jayden, 14, and Joseph, 11, saying they were "perfectly fine".

Indigo aka "Tree Stone" claimed his father wasn't involved in the boys running away.

"They left on their own accord. They hated being vaccinated because all of the kids immediately got sick," Indigo wrote in the email.

"We are a super loving family that didn't really do anything wrong."

Indigo said his father was only spotted by police during a search of bushland by police at Tallow Beach last Wednesday, as he was helping to locate his sons.

A self-styled guru who calls himself Omra Ki, Brady claims on Facebook to have studied at the Academy of Natural Therapies on the Gold Coast.

Brady also believes in the new age unified field theory, a belief Albert Einstein worked for 40 years trying to prove, which his son Indigo claimed his father discovered.

"The reason they are chasing us and trying to split us apart is because my dad discovered the unified field that Albert Einstein looked for for 40 years, the thing that proves we are all connected," Indigo wrote in the email.

Brady dad's unconventional, but "a good bloke", says mate

A MAN who knows the father of missing Brady brothers, Jayden and Joseph, says Daniel Todd Brady's lifestyle may be unconventional, but "He's a really good guy - caring, loving, non-judgemental and generous".

The Northern Rivers man, who requested his name be withheld, described the dad (aka Omra Ki) as "...a special guy". He had been wondering about Brady's whereabouts since he last spoke with him in 2007.

"I first met him when he came walking through my door with two $700 bottles of champagne and told me 'Jesus said to come and see you'," he said.

"He was living at Fingal with his wife and two kids and he'd swum across the Tweed River mouth to meet a guy he'd never met - me.

"He's a good bloke and the kids were happy as Larry when I last saw them - they were all living completely off the grid.

"There's something about him - he was up at Airlie Beach and some guy just randomly gave him a yacht."

The man believes "Everyone should just leave him alone", noting Brady was "...anti-government and not into the traditional education system".
