West Australian detectives have made a fresh appeal for CCTV footage to help with their ongoing investigation into Cleo Smith’s alleged abduction.
Cleo was allegedly snatched from the family tent while camping at Quobba Blowholes on October 16 and was rescued just before 1am on Wednesday when detectives forced their way into a Carnarvon house.
A 36-year-old man is in custody and is being questioned, but no charges have been laid.
Detective Senior Sergeant Cameron Blaine, who saved Cleo, told reporters on Thursday that police still needed the public’s help with the case.
“We obviously have officers here for a little bit of time yet,” he said.
“The previous appeals that we’ve made to the public around CCTV has been around a particular time between Friday the 15th and the Saturday the 16th.
“Now that we have knowledge of a suspect, I’m asking businesses and people within Carnarvon to provide to the investigative team any CCTV that they might have between Friday the 15th of October and Tuesday the 2nd of November.
“That would be of great assistance to the investigation.”
