Search for missing four-year-old girl enters third day
The search for a missing girl in the Gascoyne will enter its third day today, with police not ruling out the possibility that she was abducted.
Four-year-old Cleo Smith was last seen in her family’s tent at 1:30 am on Saturday morning at the Blowholes campsite in Macleod, north of Carnarvon.
When the family wore up at 6:30am, she was gone.

Emergency services have spent the past two days scouring through the surrounding bushland and water.
She was last seen wearing a pink/purple one-piece sleepsuit with a blue and yellow pattern.
6PR and Nine News Reporter Louise Rennie told Mark Gibson police are throwing all their resources at the search.
“Police said yesterday they’ve been using heat detecting technology, and special planes flying over at night to see if they can find little Cleo, but still no sign of her yet,” she said.
“And today, day three, of searching along the coastline, and of course every hour that passes, the situation just gets more desperate.”
