Daniel Morcombe's elder brother announces engagement

THE elder brother of slain Sunshine Coast schoolboy Daniel Morcombe has announced his engagement with the family welcoming the announcement. 

Dean Morcombe, has proposed to his girlfriend Alice Webb - who works as a nurse at Caboolture Hospital - during a holiday to the fjords of Milford Sound in New Zealand, News Corp reports. 

"She's just a young girl herself so she'll be very keen on furthering her career first before the baby comes along," Dean's father Bruce told the Courier Mail. 

"They're always smiling and they are a happy couple."

In July this year Bruce and Denise Morcombe welcomed a grandchild when son Bradley and his wife Anna had a baby boy. 

The Morcombe's continue to work tirelessly to raise awareness about child safety, touring schools across the country.
