Police believe Cleo taken by an opportunist
As the search for missing 4yo Western Australian girl Cleo Smith hits 2.5 weeks, authorities say they are getting “closer and closer” to identifying the person/people who abducted her from the Blowholes campsite near Carnarvon, 960km north of Perth. Police have interviewed and eliminated more than 110 people from their investigation and say there is a “small handful” of people they are yet to track down. “I think it’s more than likely an opportunistic type event,” lead investigator Superintendent Rod Wilde said yesterday. As well as locating the people they are yet to speak to, police are focused on the campsite, looking through data taken by mobile towers in the area, searching the dark web, and securing satellite imagery captured over the area around the time of Cleo’s disappearance.
