Police broke into a house in Carnarvon, a town about 100 kilometres south of the campsite in western Australia, early on Wednesday morning and found Cleo Smith in one of the rooms.

“They found little Cleo in one of the rooms,” Western Australia Police Deputy Commissioner Col Blanch said.

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

A suspect has been taken into custody, police said.

Cleo was last seen in her family’s tent around 1:30 a.m. local time on Oct. 16 at a remote campsite over 800 km north of Perth. Her parents woke up to find her missing in the morning.
