      For how early you can encounter this, it's a terrible situation.

      I tried 5 times, every time all Harpies rolled higher Initiative than my entire party, meaning they immediatly kill the kid.

          There's 2 additional chests. one on the path down, bit of a jumping puzzle and the other is behind the rock formation the harpies are on.

            Careful with finishing another questline before saving the child, might lock you out from finding Mol & Doni.

              Pain in the ass encounter. Tried to pre-position party on cliff to get harpies flying across. Cutscene forces entire party down at the water. Try to run up and lure just brings party back down. Range from ground up sucks. The *****es fly down, hit, fly back. Mage died and left necrotic gas cloud and killed party near him. Could not target to revive him after harpies died. Was stuck..... Could not help party member one step up on a rock, said too far away even standing on his body. The whole encounter is frustrating at best. Better to try at higher level than 4. Harpies have around 24 HPs.
