Sunshine Coast Detective Senior Sergeant Craig Mansfield told ABC news that the people in the video are not suspects.

“These people aren’t suspected in any way, shape or form. We just know that they’ve been in the area that time,” he said.

“They could be interstate people who haven’t watched local news, so we’re hoping that this release of footage may assist us in identifying these people.”

Police are set to return to the scene of the incident where they hope to locate witnesses.
