‘Great investment’ by pouring resources into Cleo Smith search

Bond University’s Dr Terry Goldsworthy says the resources Western Australia Police put into the search for Cleo Smith was a great investment.

Western Australia Police have confirmed they have found four-year-old girl Cleo Smith inside a locked home in the early house of Wednesday morning after going missing for 17 days.

A team of officers broke into a Carnarvon home around 1am where they found Cleo in one of the rooms.

“It’s a great outcome and congratulations to the police for achieving that,” Dr Goldsworthy told Sky News Australia.

“It’s probably been a very difficult investigation for police, it was of interest they put very large resources into this from the first day.

“I think it was a great investment because it’s paid off.”
