A Chinese national is due to face Southport Magistrate's Court today after being charged over the alleged kidnapping of a Gold Coast boy.

The 53-year-old was extradited from New South Wales to Queensland on Monday, and has since been charged with a string of offences including torture, extortion and kidnapping for ransom.

It comes after the 12-year-old boy was allegedly snatched while walking home from school Mudgeeraba on Friday.

He was eventually found in Grafton the following day, while police investigate whether a second man was involved.
