Cleo Smith, the four-year-old Australian girl missing since 16 October, has been found alive.

Video shows emotional moment when Cleo Smith was rescued by police

WA Police Deputy Commissioner Col Blanch said a police team rescued Cleo in the early hours of Wednesday, 3 November.

A video shared by the WA Police shows the emotional moment young Cleo was rescued, following an 18-day search.

“Cleo, my name is Cameron, how are you? Are you okay?” says Sergeant Cameron Blaine as she is carried in an officers arms.

“We are going to take you to see your mummy and daddy, ok?”, to which Cleo nods.

The police broke their way into a locked house in Carnarvon around 1am local time and found Cleo “alive and well” in one of the rooms.

“One of the officers picked her up into his arms and asked her ‘what’s your name?’” Blanch said. “She said – ‘My name is Cleo.’”

Cleo was reunited with her parents a short time later.

A man from Carnarvon is in custody and is being questioned by detectives.

“This is the outcome we all hoped and prayed for,” Blanch said. “It’s the outcome we’ve achieved because of some incredible police work.”

Blanch thanked Cleo’s parents, the Western Australian community, volunteers and his colleagues in the Western Australia Police Force.

“We’ll have more to say on the rescue of Cleo as the day unfolds,” he said.

“For now – Welcome home Cleo.”

Cleo Smith was last seen in her family’s tent at about 1.30am local time on 16 October at the remote Blowholes Shacks campsite in Macleod, about 900km north of Perth.
