A team of detectives joined the desperate search for a missing four-year-old girl yesterday as police revealed they hold “grave concerns” for her and are “not ruling anything out” — including a possible abduction.
Cleo Smith vanished from her family’s tent early on Saturday morning during a camping trip at the Blowholes, about 70km north of Carnarvon.
Police say her parents had an “interaction” with their little girl about 1.30am but when they woke about 6am she was gone. Details of the interaction have not been revealed.
Insp. Jon Munday said the circumstances of the case were “extremely concerning” and that the State’s “best investigators”, including detectives from Perth, had arrived to join the search. According to Nine News, the detectives are from the homicide squad.
