THE parents of a four-year-old boy who tragically drowned on the Sunshine Coast want to say goodbye to their son in Toowoomba.

 Antwun Crow was found drowned in Currimundi Creek on Wednesday, just six months after the family moved from Toowoomba to access better resources for Antwun's autism.

His parents Ben and Antoinette Crow are now faced with extensive funeral costs, and want to bring Antwun's body home to his home town to say their final farewells.

Mr Crow's sister Natasha Withers said the sudden and unexpected cost of a funeral for was making the tragic time even more difficult.

"We can't really book a funeral place until we've got a deposit," she said.

"We can't bring him home.

"That's really upsetting everyone.

"This is the last thing we can ever do for him.

"It's a tragic thing, it's not planned, we're all a bit dumbfounded."

Ms Withers said her nephew was a bubbly child who was always giving cuddles, and was deeply loved by his parents.

Donations to the Crow family can be made through the Hannah Foundation.
