Reward Offered for Missing Australian Girl

The Western Australian officials on Thursday announced a one million Australian dollar reward for information about Cleo Smith, a missing four-year-old girl from an Australian coastal town.

“I urge anyone who has any knowledge of the location of Cleo, please provide that information to police,” Premier Mark McGowan said.

The desperate search for the missing girl, Smith, has entered its sixth day today, with police confirming they believe the four-year-old girl was most likely abducted.

“Given the information now that we’ve learned from the scene, the fact the search has gone for this period of time when we haven’t been able to locate her … that leads us to believe she was taken from the tent,” Special Task Force Superintendent Rod Wilde said.

Wilde also said police were appealing for information around the country as the search now stretched beyond Western Australia borders.

“We have been in touch with all jurisdictions around Australia if anyone nationwide has information that could be relevant, contact Crimestoppers,” Wilde said. “We have got the nation looking for Cleo.” 

Cleo Smith’s parents discovered her missing on Saturday morning from the family tent.

“As we passed the divider, I went into the other room, and the zipper was open… I turned around to Jake and just said, ‘Cleo’s gone’,” Ms. Smith said in an emotional press conference on Tuesday.
