Detective Superintendent Rod Wilde, who heads up the 100-person-strong Taskforce Rodia, flew into Carnarvon this morning before visiting the Blowholes campgrounds for the first time.

None of the 200 reported sightings reported to police so far have led to the four-year-old being found, however, Superintendent Wilde encouraged the public to continue helping.

The frantic search for CleoOne week ago, at a remote campsite in WA, a mother woke up to find her four-year-old daughter missing.

“We still want the public to come forward [and] give us information, which we can follow through,” he said.

International law enforcement partners lend hand in investigation

Superintendent Wilde said police had “international partners” they worked with in cases such as this, but did not give further details.

“The investigation is progressing [and] we are very hopeful and confident [that] we are going to resolve it.

“We’ve tracked down over 100 people that were there [at the Blowholes campgrounds] that night and we’ve spoken [to] and interviewed those people. 

“There may still be some people [who] were in the general vicinity … that we’ve asked to come forward.”

He said the case had gained widespread attention and had “touched everyone’s hearts”.

Superintendent Wilde also met with Cleo Smith’s mother, Ellie Smith, and stepfather, Jake Gliddon.

“That was really to reiterate [our] commitment to finding out what has happened to their daughter,” he said.

Police on Thursday visited businesses in an industrial estate on the outskirts of Carnarvon, asking owners to provide any CCTV footage recorded in the days surrounding Cleo Smith’s disappearance. 

A police spokesman said a lot of footage had already been provided but that detectives knew there were businesses in Carnarvon that were yet to offer up their footage.

This week, forensic officers could be seen collecting soil samples from campfires near shacks in the area.

Police also returned to the family home in Carnarvon, something Superintendent Wilde said was part of the process in a major investigation.

He reiterated that Cleo’s parents are not suspects and have been fully cooperating with police.

Appeal continues for information about mystery car

Police are still seeking information from the public about a car that was seen turning right out of the road leading out of the campgrounds between 3am and 3:30am, shortly before Chloe was reported missing.

“We still want those people to come forward. We haven’t positively identified the people or person … driving that car,” Superintendent Wilde said.

“If they were on the road in the early hours of Saturday, October 16, travelling back into Carnarvon, we’d like that person or persons to come forward and make themselves known to police.”

Cleo’s case has been raised in federal parliament, with Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews saying the government was strengthening laws to give agencies greater scope to act in the case of crimes against children.

$1 million reward has been offered for information that leads to the four-year-old being found, or to an arrest or conviction of anyone involved in her disappearance.
