Cleo Smith Reveals Shocking Details About Her Treatment During Abduction

Cleo Smith Reveals Shocking Details About Her Treatment During Abduction

The four-year-old reportedly claimed a woman helped dress her and brush her hair.

Australian Police are looking into claims a woman was involved in Cleo Smith's abduction after the four-year-old opened up on her treatment while being held captive.

Cleo went missing from Blowholes campsite in Carnarvon, Australia, last month, and was found alive and well after police raided the home of Terence Darrell Kelly - who lived around 50 miles away.

While officers initially said they were not looking for anyone else in connection with the young girl’s abduction, interviews with Cleo have suggested there may be a female involved.

Reports from the Daily Mail claim that police are looking to see if there was a woman who visited the location that Cleo was being held at, after Cleo claimed a woman "helped her dress and brushed her hair."

Forensic tests are now taking place on Kelly’s property to see if there is any trace of anyone else having been or visited the home.

Detective senior sergeant Cameron Blaine has stated that finding out whether Kelly acted alone will be the next steps of the investigation.

“Our focus this week is for us to ascertain whether there was anyone else involved. That's why we are still here,” he said.

“So, we just ask that if there was anyone that had any contact with Mr Kelly, whether you saw him, whether you met with him, whether you spoke to him on the phone during the relevant period to please make yourself known to police.”

Kelly has since been transferred to a maximum security prison in Perth where he is due to appear again in court over the next few weeks. 

Cleo’s alleged abductor was thought to have made chilling Facebook statuses and interactions around the time she went missing.

 "I can't accept friend requests from strangers .... I live a private life and I respect those who are on my friend list to ensure their privacy is respected too,” the Daily Mail reports Kelly posted on the day Cleo went missing.

"Us adults have to be careful online too."
