Search for Cleo Smith: Unobtrusive Cabin Security Camera “Recorded Cleo’s Voice”
Cleo Smith’s audio was recorded on a single CCTV camera in a beach hut, located just 20 yards from where she was staying the day before she disappeared.
The motion-sensitive camera faces the front of the cabin, capturing a wide shot of anyone entering or exiting the beach house. It also records audio.
Cleo, just four years old, was heard on camera, police confirmed.
The camera is in a protective box with a glass front, making it inconspicuous for those who stay in the area.
Police took copies of the footage and scanned them, saying on Sunday that this confirmed that Cleo was on the camp grounds before her disappearance.
It comes as the driver of a car spotted near the campsite where Cleo disappeared last weekend is wanted by police in Western Australia, who point out that she is not a suspect in the disappearance.
Detectives want to speak to the driver of the vehicle spotted two hours after Cleo was last seen in her family’s tent, as well as anyone camping nearby.
Police believe Cleo was taken from the tent to the Blowholes site on the northwest coast of WA in the early hours of last Saturday morning.
Detective Superintendent Rod Wilde said Sunday afternoon a car was seen turning south on Blowholes Road between 3 a.m. and 3:30 a.m. that morning.
“We want the person (s) in that vehicle to show up and contact the police,” Wilde said.
“We want to know who they were and what they were doing.”
Mr. Wilde stressed that the driver was not a suspect.
