A case that has set off all the alarms of local authorities and residents, little Cleo Smith, was sleeping in a tent to camp in Blowholes, about 875 kilometers north of Perth, with her mother and stepfather when she disappeared without leave not a single clue of his whereabouts.
The parents told the authorities that they were spending time as a family and that the little girl woke up in the early morning at approximately 1:30 a.m. After asking for a little water, everyone went back to sleep without any strange noise that could arouse suspicion until the morning , of that day October 15, when the parents realized that Cleo had disappeared along with her sleeping bag.
After an intense search by sky, land and sea, the authorities announced a reward of one million Australian dollars to anyone who provides verifiable information on the whereabouts of the minor, who has disappeared since Saturday in the west of the country.
