The Australian authorities announced on Wednesday 3rd November 2021 that a 4-year-old girl who went missing from an Australian outback camping more than two weeks ago was found “alive and well” in a locked house.
Early Wednesday morning, police broke into a house in Carnarvon, a town about 100 kilometers (62 miles) south of the campsite, and discovered Cleo Smith in one of the rooms.
One of the officers took her in his arms and asked, ‘What is your name?’ On local television, Western Australia Police Deputy Commissioner Col Blanch stated, She said;
My name is Cleo.
According to him, a Suspected man has been arrested in connection with the disappearance. Cleo was last seen in her family’s tent at the remote Blowholes Shacks campsite in Macleod at about 1.30 a.m. local time on Oct. 16, about 900 kilometers (560 miles) north of Perth, Western Australia’s capital. She was gone when her parents awoke the next morning.
Police in Australia suspected the girl had been kidnapped and announced a reward of A$1 million ($743,000) for information and today the girl has been found well and alive.
